Section of state Route 67 to close overnights this week

Posted: Updated:

SANTEE (CNS) - Work crews will shut down a roughly half-mile stretch of state Route 67 nightly this week for work on an ongoing series of East County roadway improvements, Caltrans announced Monday.

The freeway will be closed between Prospect and Woodside avenues in Santee from 9 p.m. until 5 a.m. tomorrow and over the same hours the following four nights, according to Caltrans. Detour signs will be in place during those hours to help motorists navigate around the blocked-off section of the north-south route.

In addition, the following SR-67 ramps will close at 8 each night and reopen at 5 the following morning:

-- northbound onramp from Bradley Avenue;

-- northbound offramp to Prospect Avenue; and

-- southbound onramp from Magnolia Avenue.

The closures will allow road crews to repave portions of the highway and add striping and raised markers. In recent months, workers have been building bridges in the area as part of the state Route 52 Sunny Side Gateway Project, which will provide a new link from inland San Diego to Santee.

The $520 million construction job, which also calls for a "signature" bridge over Cuyamaca Street, is slated for completion this spring.
