SAN DIEGO–Caltrans is planning one-way traffic control on Dye Road near the State Route 67 (SR-67) Intersection Monday through Friday to install lighted beacons and traffic signal foundations.
Caltrans officials say the traffic control will run 9 a.m.-3 p.m. for that week. Motorists could experience brief delays during those times.
The work is part of the SR-67 Dye Road/Highland Valley Road Improvement Project that will widen SR-67 from two to four lanes through the intersection. Improvements include reconfiguring the intersection to accommodate commercial truck turns, adding a second left-turn lane onto the highway from both Dye Road and Highland Valley Road as well as adding an equestrian trail on the northerly side of both roads. Other improvements include push-button pedestrian crossings, upgraded drainage, and Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant concrete curbs.
The project will help reduce existing and future traffic congestion and address mobility concerns due to peak hour traffic delays. The $14 million project is funded with state and San Diego County dollars. The roadwork portion of the project is expected to be finished in about a year.
Motorists are reminded to watch for highway workers and moving construction equipment in the project area.
