SAN DIEGO —Beginning Sunday night, Caltrans crews will close 11 on and off connector ramps along State Route 52 to replace overhead signs. The work is part of a county-wide project to install self-reflective signs that use headlights from highway vehicles to illuminate the sign. The new signs will enhance nighttime visibility and will replace signs requiring light fixtures to light up the signs. Caltrans engineers estimate that the new signs will reduce electrical use by seven percent.

Due to the number of closures, the maintenance crews will close the westbound State Route 54 (SR-54) connector to northbound and southbound Interstate 805 (I-805) Thursday night from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. for guardrail maintenance.

Signs will be posted directing motorists on westbound SR-54 to exit at Highland Avenue, turn left to eastbound SR-54 to northbound or southbound I-805.
