State Route 67 Closures Scheduled Sunday-Thursday

SAN DIEGO – State Route 67 will be closed between Prospect and Woodside avenues Sunday through Thursday nights. The highway will be closed from 9 until 5 the next morning except on Monday when the closure will begin at 8. Construction crews will also close the Magnolia Avenue on-ramp to southbound SR-67 at 8 on all four nights.

According to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), the early closure on Monday will allow crews enough time to complete a concrete bridge deck pour.  If weather conditions do not permit the concrete pour on Monday night, the early closure will be moved to the same time Tuesday.  On the remaining nights highway crews will be erecting bridge falsework.

Crews will place detour signs to assist motorists around the closures.

The work is part of the State Route 52 Sunny side Gateway Project constructing a new four-lane freeway from the SR-125/SR-52 interchange to SR-67 in Santee. For more information, please see the State Route 52 Sunny Side Gateway Project Brochure at www.dot.ca.gov/dist11/facts/SR-52brochure.pdf or contact the Caltrans Public Information Office at  (619) 688-6670.
