Construction Begins on State Route 76 Interchange near
 Lilac Hills Ranch


— October 25, 2012

Construction begins today for the final widening phase of State Route 76 (SR-76) from South Mission Road to east of Interstate 15 (I-15), encompassing the interchange.

“The project is timely and well needed,” said Ann Fox, California Department of Transportation Project Manager.  “Improvements to the interchange are estimated to take nine-months; while the widening of the five mile phase of highway will begin at the same time, but will not be completed until sometime in 2015.”  
“Route 76 is a vital artery linking inland north county to the significant economic base of coastal north county,” said Randy Goodson, Chief Executive Officer, Accretive Investments, Inc.  “This project will benefit all of San Diego County by creating jobs and increasing commerce regionally.”

“The number one request for residents in the area, according to our research, is access to services along the I-15 corridor.  People are requesting shopping, restaurants, a grocery store, a pharmacy, office space and schools,” said Jon Rilling, Vice President, Accretive Investments. “We are responding to those local residents and have designed Lilac Hills Ranch to provide all of those modern amenities in a pedestrian oriented mixed-use community which will be connected by over 17 miles of trails, 20 acres of parks and 50 acres of groves and orchards.”

Lilac Hills Ranch is located along Interstate 15 at Old Highway 395, east of Bonsall, just one exit south of the SR-76 interchange project.  The new community will be oriented towards integrating renewable resources that can provide a healthy lifestyle where residents can grow smart and live green.

The cost to widen and straighten the final phase of SR-76 is estimated at $371 million and is covered by a combination of local, state and federal funds, stimulus money and TransNet sales tax proceeds, approved by county voters in 2004.
