Partnership moving forward on $105M San Diego interchange
California – Design efforts are underway on the State Route 94/State Route 125 interchange project that is estimated to cost $105 million.
Caltrans, the state’s transportation agency, is leading the project, and the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) is pledging $16.24 million from its FY 2020 draft budget toward the 2-mile segment that will provide a direct freeway to freeway connection from southbound State Route 125 to eastbound State Route 94.
The section of SR 125 between the Lemon Avenue on-ramp and the Spring Street off-ramp carries about 84,000 vehicles a day with about 20,500 of them exiting at Spring Street. The proposed connector would reduce traffic delays in this area by eliminating the need for exiting traffic to connect to SR 94 and reducing exiting traffic counts by more than 15,000, according to Caltrans.
