Weekend Closures of State Route 78 in Ramona Begin April 21

Lengthy Detour Will Be in Place for up to Four Consecutive Weekends (Rescheduled)

SAN DIEGO— Caltrans construction crews will close State Route 78 (SR-78) in both directions between Indian Oaks Road and Weekend Villa Road in Ramona for up to four consecutive weekends from Friday at 9 p.m. until Monday at 5 a.m. beginning April 21. Motorists can expect delays and are urged to allow extra time for travel during the closures.

The closures are needed to allow crews to construct a retaining wall to stabilize the slope on the north side of the highway.

The detour will extend from Cloverdale Road/San Pasqual Road to Main Street/State Route 67 (SR-67).

Eastbound motorists will be detoured south on Cloverdale Road/San Pasqual Road, south on Bear Valley Parkway/Via Rancho Parkway, south on Interstate 15, east on Scripps Poway Parkway and north on SR-67 to SR-78.

Westbound motorists will follow the same detour in the opposite direction.

Local traffic will still be able to access SR-78 between Cloverdale/San Pasqual Road and Indian Oaks Road and between Weekend Villa Road and SR-67/Main Street.
