Portion of SR-78 Closed for Stabilizing the Slope

SAN DIEGO – Beginning Thursday State Route 78 (SR-78) near Ramona will be closed between Indian Oaks Road and Weekend Villa Road weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for approximately three weeks.

The California Department of Transportation will be performing slope rehabilitation work. This safety project will prevent rocks from falling down the slope and onto the highway. Because of the nature of this work, it can only be done during daylight hours.

The detour for westbound motorists from the communities of Ramona and Julian is southbound State Route 67 (SR-67) to westbound Scripps Poway Parkway and then to Interstate 15 (I-15)

Eastbound motorists should take I-15 to eastbound Scripps Poway Parkway and then onto northbound SR-67 to SR-78.
