February 11, 2011 (San Diego's East County) -- Major delays are expected all day Sunday, February 13 on State Route 67 northbound as construction crews close the highway from 3 a.m. to 10 p.m. between Bradley and Woodside avenues. The connector ramp from eastbound Interstate 8 to northbound SR-67 will also be closed. The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is advising motorists to use alternate routes.
The highway will be closed for the final pavement work to the new SR-52 connector. Caltrans will place more than 20 detour and/or Changeable Message Signs in the area to assist motorists around the closure.
Crews will also close the Bradley Avenue northbound on-ramp as well as the northbound Prospect Avenue off-ramp on Sunday.
"We are in the final stretch of work for the State Route 52 Sunny Side Gateway Project before we open the lanes to the public," said Caltrans Corridor Director Joel Haven. A grand opening of the completed project is slated for March 19.
