Nighttime Delays Expected Next Week For Construction Work On Nordahl Road Bridge at SR-78

SAN DIEGO – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) expects traffic delays next week as both directions of State Route 78 (SR-78) may be closed for five consecutive nights at the Nordahl Road Bridge starting Sunday, March 25 from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.  Motorists are urged to avoid the area. 

Caltrans said the work is necessary to prepare for the future demolition of the east side of the Nordahl Road Bridge. Traffic delays are also expected on Nordahl Road during these closures. The nighttime work will generate more noise in the area.

Motorists traveling in this construction area will be detoured to exit at the Nordahl Road off-ramp then reenter SR-78 at the Nordahl Road on-ramp.

The closures may be rescheduled if weather or construction materials availability plays a role.
