Caltrans receives funds to expand Ramona highway intersection

Funding has been secured to move forward with a project to improve a busy rural highway intersection south of Ramona, according to a release from the California Department of Transportation.

The intersection to be improved, where Highway 67 meets Highland Valley Road/Dye Road, affects the daily driving of an estimated 22,000 East County drivers. Caltrans said a groundbreaking on the project is expected in late 2015 to widen the intersection and add lanes, shoulders and new traffic signals.

The announced funding totals $10 million — $7 million from the State Highway Operation and Protection Program and $3 million from the county of San Diego.

“Finding the dollars for these much-needed projects is never easy," Caltrans District 11 Director Laurie Berman said. "However, having the preliminary engineering completed positioned us to jump start the project when funding was made available."

Caltrans is targeting late 2016 for the project's completion.
