SR-52 Update – September to November

I have been remiss on updating the work along SR-52, so I suppose it is about time to post again.  For various reasons I did not get many pictures during October, but I do have several from September and November.  So, without further delay, continuing work on SR-52.

I came across this work one day and fortunately had my camera with me as I drove south on SR-125.  The supports for one of the bridges across SR-125 was in the process of being removed, and there had been a traffic backup as they moved some of the material.

    When will the merge from Mission Gorge to the 125/52 open for use? I travel 125/52 and just wondered when I could expect it to open and to make time adjustments for my commute, if necessary.

    There has been very little inconvenience with this project and it is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,

      The wait is almost over. There is a ribbon cutting celebration scheduled for March 19 with a 3-mile run/walk/ride and community fair. Watch for more details.
