Home Avenue Off-Ramp Closed as MLK Mural Starts Along Route 94

SAN DIEGO – The Home Avenue off-ramp from northbound State Route 15 will be closed Tuesday and Wednesday, from 8 a.m.-4 p.m., as construction crews for the city of San Diego place scaffolding along the retaining wall at Home Avenue.  Signs will be posted detouring motorists around this short-term closure.

A mural commemorating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. will begin next week along this stretch of eastbound State Route 94.  Work on this project is scheduled to begin Tuesday and will take approximately two months to complete.

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) sponsors this project and the city of San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture is administering the artist’s contract.  The completed mural will become the property of the state of California.

Information and inquiries about this project are directed to the city of San Diego’s Commission for Arts and Culture at (619) 236-6800.
