Work on SR-52 continues – maybe we will even see it finished on time (not holding my breath on that, though). The major rerouting from Mission Gorge to SR-125 is done, but now it has moved west to where the road goes under the 53-125 exchange. Meanwhile, CalTrans has put in a new on ramp from Magnolia to SR-67 South (although last time I was over there it was closed while they had a crane doing work alongside the freeway). There is also work going on for the bridge over Cuyamaca Street. Below are a few pictures from the work at Cuyamaca and SR-125, arranged by date.
