After waiting for years the completion of the SR-52 from SR-125 to SR-67 is almost here. This will create the final link between Santee and La Jolla (which I’m sure Mayor Randy Voepel will find satisfying for more than one reason), and should help alleviate some of the heavy traffic on Mission Gorge Road through the center of town.
To celebrate this event there will be a community festival on Saturday, March 19, and will include a ribbon cutting ceremony, a 3-mile run/walk/ride, and entertainment. To me, this would indicate that the freeway may be open for business by Monday, March 22, but we will have to see about that. I will have more details on the festival when they are available.
