California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is planning to begin initial work on improving traffic flow at the state Route 67 and Highland Valley/Dye Road intersection this summer, Joe Hull of Caltrans said on Tuesday.
According to Hull, Caltrans has agreed to do two steps: A project report that will cover all environmental documents and detail estimates for the project, and final design engineering plans. The early estimate for that work is $800,000, he said.
Preliminary plans call for the work to begin at the start of Caltrans’ fiscal year which is July 1, he added.
Funding for actual construction of improvements will be a combined effort of Caltrans, San Diego County, land developers and the San Diego Association of Governments, said Hull.
“It will definitely be a joint effort...to come up with funding for construction,” he said.
