Road work to cause delays near Rancho Santa Fe

Commuters who traverse Del Dios Highway between Escondido and Rancho Santa Fe should be prepared for roadwork-related delays, starting tomorrow and continuing through the end of the work week.

From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, crews will be re-striping the seven-mile stretch and laying down new lane markers, according to the county Department of Public Works.

California Highway Patrol officers will provide traffic control between Clauden Road on the east and the intersection of El Monte Video and La Ville Plateada on the west.

The project will conclude over the first two days of October, DPW spokesman Bill Polick said.
