Calle Real / Cathedral Oaks Intersection to Close

Bridge Replacement Requires Brief Detour


As part of the Cathedral Oaks Bridge Replacement Project, Cathedral Oaks Road at Calle Real will be closed from July 26 to August 20, 2010. Cathedral Oaks at Calle Real will be shifted slightly to the west in order to prepare for the bridge replacement.

Calle Real at Cathedral Oaks Road will be closed from August 16 to August 20, 2010. Both closures were planned to be completed prior to the start of school.

Cathedral Oaks / Calle Real intersection

Remaining work on Calle Real will be done behind K-Rail, and two lanes of traffic on Calle Real and Cathedral Oaks will be maintained. Several days of one-way reversing traffic control will be necessary on Calle Real to complete the widening on the south side of Calle Real after the structure abutment is built.

This closure may increase delays at the Storke/Glen Annie interchange, so drivers may want to allow a little extra time to get through that area especially during the morning 7-9 a.m. rush.

The project is proceeding on schedule. The temporary south bound on-ramp was opened on schedule; it is narrower than the permanent ramps so please use caution.

This new intersection is part of the Cathedral Oaks Bridge Replacement Project which will construct a new overcrossing on a new alignment with Cathedral Oaks Road to replace the existing overcrossing at Winchester Canyon Road.

Residents are advised to use caution in construction zones and to follow the directions given by flaggers. This will keep both citizens and workers safe.
