Drainage Work To Close Lanes on SR-78

SAN DIEGO – Construction crews will close two lanes on westbound State Route 78 (SR-78) between College Boulevard and El Camino Real on Friday night beginning at 8:30 and reopening Saturday morning at 7. 

According to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), highway workers need the closure to assess a damaged drainpipe. Final repairs are expected to take place on Saturday night, April 14.

Caltrans would like to remind motorists to drive alertly and to slow when nearing and passing the work zone.
