Sunday Maintenance Work On State Route 78 Extended

SAN DIEGO – Work on westbound State Route 78 has been extended for Sunday.  The route is closed between College Boulevard and El Camino Real to replace a drainage pipe, according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).The road will reopen as soon as Caltrans engineers say it is safe.
Traffic will be detoured off the freeway at College Boulevard to parallel westbound Vista Way and back on at El Camino Real.  The traffic signal timing at the end of the westbound College Boulevard off-ramp and Vista Way will be temporary changed to give the maximum green to vehicles using the off-ramp.

Motorists may expect delays and are asked to observe reduced speeds through construction areas.  They are also asked to move over a lane when possible if they see a highway work truck or emergency vehicle with flashing lights on the shoulder.
