SAN DIEGO — The westbound State Route 52 (SR-52) Convoy Street off-ramp will close this weekend from 4:30 p.m. Saturday to 5 a.m. Monday. Note: The Miramar Landfill closes at 4 p.m. on Saturdays.
The closure is part the $16.5 million project to smooth the pavement on SR-52 between State Route 163 and Interstate 805. Crews will begin the process of applying a Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement (CRCP) technique at this heavily used off-ramp.
CRCP uses reinforced steel in combination with other design properties such as slab thickness and concrete materials to prevent traffic and environmental distress. This process will reduce the number of occasions crews will have to close the ramp to make repairs.
Crews are working nightly on this project that is expected to be completed by the end of the month. Nearly 30 highway workers are working this area each night. Motorists are advised to slow down and obey the speed reduction signs posted on both the eastbound and westbound lanes of the highway.
Construction During COVID-19 Pandemic: Public works construction is deemed essential and work continues during the pandemic. Our partners, contractors and workers are following U.S. Center for Disease Control and California Department of Public Health guidelines.
