Schedule Change to the SR-78 Day Closure

SAN DIEGO – A change in construction schedule will permit State Route 78 between Indian Oaks Road and Weekend Villa Road near Ramona to remain open Thursday through Sunday.  This stretch of highway will be closed once again next Monday through Wednesday, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., to allow crews to work on stabilizing a rock slope in the area.

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) stated that due to the nature of this safety project, the work can only be done during daylight hours and may require extra days, depending on weather and other construction-related activities.  The detour requires motorists to allow extra time for out-of-direction travel during the closure. 

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.
