Nighttime Lane Closures on SR-67 at Dye Road/Highland Valley Road
SAN DIEGO—Lane closures are planned on both directions of State Route 67 (SR-67) at Dye Road/Highland Valley Road in Ramona for five consecutive nights beginning Sunday, according to Caltrans. The closures will take place 7 p.m.-5 a.m. to allow installation of a new drainage system as part of the SR-67 Dye Road/Highland Valley Road Intersection Project.
SR-67 will be reduced to one lane with flaggers in place to direct one-way traffic control through the intersection. Slow moving traffic is expected and motorists are advised to allow additional travel time.
Project construction began in May 2016 to improve the SR-67 Dye Road/Highland Valley Road intersection and widen SR-67 from two to four lanes through the intersection.
In January, crews began widening the eastbound side of intersection which required reducing the travel lanes on a portion of Highland Valley Road from two lanes to one lane in each direction. The lane reduction resulted in increased queues and traffic delays during peak commute times.
Some relief is expected in mid-March when construction activities shift to the westbound side of the intersection. During this final stage of the project, crews will open two eastbound lanes and one westbound lane on Highland Valley Road.
Construction is expected to be completed in summer, with another year for landscaping. More information about the SR-67 Dye Road/Highland Valley Road Interchange Project may be found at http://www.dot.ca.gov/d11/projects/67_DyeRoad.pdf.
Motorists are reminded to watch for highway workers and moving construction equipment in the project area. The work schedule is subject to change depending on weather conditions.
