Oceanside CA— This month, construction starts on the final phase (East Segment) of the SR 76 project. It will convert a 5.2-mile stretch of the highway from two lanes to four lanes, between South Mission Road and I-15 in North County. Last year, the SR 76 and I-15 interchange was upgraded.
The upcoming improvements that will be built include: a barrier-separated median to prevent collisions; shoulders for bicyclists and pedestrians; an expanded Park & Ride at Old Highway 395 and SR 76; under-crossings and fencing to enhance and support wildlife movement through the corridor; and native plantings to create, preserve, and restore natural habitat areas.
The SR 76 East Segment is the last segment in a series of improvement projects between I-5 and I-15. Construction is expected to last through 2017.
