Portion of SR-78 closed to stabilize slope

Beginning Thursday, state Route 78 (SR-78) will be closed between Indian Oaks Road and Weekend Villa Road weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for approximately three weeks.

California Department of Transportation reports that this safety project will prevent rocks from falling down the slope and onto the highway. Because of the nature of the work, it can only be done during daylight hours, reports Caltrans.

Westbound motorists from Ramona, Julian and other backcountry communities are being detoured south on state Route 67 (SR-67) to westbound Scripps Poway Parkway and then to Interstate 15 (I-15). Eastbound motorists are advised to take I-15 to eastbound Scripps Poway Parkway and then to northbound SR-67 to SR-78.

The road will be open weekends.
