The state transportation agency is accepting comments on the possibility of installing median barriers in the 12-mile stretch of Route 67 from Shady Oaks Drive in Ramona to Willow Road in Lakeside.

Caltrans engineers discussed median options and showed maps and renderings at a public meeting in Ramona on Aug. 23. Options include a concrete barrier, metal barrier, high tension cable barrier and median buffer. Another option is “no build,” meaning no changes would occur.

A median barrier could eliminate a lane where three or four lanes exist and could become inconvenient for those living off Route 67 in the project area as they may not be able to make a left turn from their driveway, said Caltrans officials.

Public comments will be accepted until Sept. 23 by emailing

Ct.public.Information.d11@dot.ca.gov

or mailing to Caltrans District Office, 4050 Taylor St., MS-121, San Diego, CA  92110.

As Caltrans accepts comments about proposed median options, San Diego Association of Governments' September 2012 Regional Transportation Plan Improvement Program shows plans to widen 67 to four lanes from Dye Road in Ramona to Mapleview in Lakeside by 2030. A planner for the regional agency told Ramona Community Planning Group members in 2011 that the project is scheduled to take place between 2021 and 2030.
