Work on State Route 78 in Ramona Postponed

SAN DIEGO—Construction on State Route 78 (SR-78) between Indian Oaks Road and Weekend Villa Road in Ramona has been postponed until June.

According to Caltrans spokesperson, Steven Shultz, the work will require a continuous nine-day full closure of the highway to accommodate the heavy equipment needed to stabilize the slope on the north side of the highway.

“The highway is only one lane in each direction and the equipment is so large it doesn’t leave room for vehicles to get through,” he said.

The start date will be announced once the work has been rescheduled.
