March 6, 2019 (Dulzura) - Crews will begin work on the new State Route 94 (SR-94) Curb Realignment Project in Dulzura (south of Jamul) beginning Monday, March 11, according to Caltrans. The long-awaited  project will soften the curve on a quarter-mile section of SR-94 just west of Freezer Road and will include relocating utility poles and lines.

The work will require reducing SR-94 to one lane within the construction zone with 24/7 one-way traffic control for much of the year-long project. Temporary traffic control will be used at each end of the lane closure to signal drivers when to safely proceed through the single lane.

Signs will be posted ahead of the lane-reduction points to alert drivers to slow down and prepare to stop ahead.

Traffic flow is expected to slow through the construction zone resulting in possible traffic delays. Motorists are encouraged to allow additional travel time to reach their destinations.

Caltrans thanks travelers for their patience during the construction activities and reminds drivers to ‘Be Work Zone Alert’ by avoiding distracted driving, paying constant attention to traffic, and slowing down when approaching work zones.
