SR-67 Pavement Rehabilitation Project
Caltrans proposes to repair and improve 18 miles of travel way and shoulders on State Route 67 (SR-67) from just north of the San Diego River Bridge in Lakeside to State Route 78 in Ramona.
The work includes upgrading metal beam guardrails, repairing drainage culverts and adding enhanced American with Disabilities Act (ADA) ramps and pedestrian refuges. Other project features include pavement markings at intersections as part of Complete Street– Enhanced crosswalk visibility, modifying existing signal systems and vehicle detection systems, and adding rumble stripes and traffic channelizers. The project will install a fiber optic cable system to serve as a digital backbone to enhance Caltrans traffic monitoring/ incident management and to provide network capacity for future field devices as well as broadband connection for the rural communities along the route.
Preserving Our Transportation System
SR-67 provides access from the City of San Diego to the East County region of San Diego County including the cities of El Cajon, Santee, and Poway and the unincorporated communities of Ramona, Santa Ysabel, and Julian. The route provides access via State Route 78 to outlying rural communities and recreational areas and is designed to allow Surface Transportation Assistance Act (STAA) trucks. The project improvements will help preserve the transportation system's condition and improve system performance.
The estimated total cost of the project is $37 million funded through the State Highway Operation and Protection Program and made available through Senate Bill 1 (SB 1), the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017.
SB 1 provides an ongoing funding increase of approximately $1.8 billion annually for the maintenance and rehabilitation of the state highway system. SB 1 funds will enable Caltrans to fix more than 17,000 lane miles of pavement, 500 bridges, and 55,000 culverts by 2027.
Caltrans is committed to conducting its business in a fully transparent manner and detailing its progress to the public. For complete details on SB 1, visit http://www.rebuildingca.ca.gov/.
An additional $6 million will be provided by SB156 through the California Department of Technology (CDT), which will give middle-mile broadband opportunity for 18 miles to communities within the SR-67 corridor and extend the middle mile connectivity to SR78, SR-76, and SR-79.
The project will begin construction in the summer of 2022 and will complete in early 2024.
