JAMUL INDIAN VILLAGE OF CALIFORNIA FINISHES
LIGHTED INTERSECTION ROAD IMPROVEMENT PROJECT IN JAMUL, CA
The Jamul Indian Village of California announced the completion of the road safety improvements at the intersection of Lyons Valley Road and Campo Road in Jamul. Breaking ground in July, the project which was funded by the Jamul Indian Village of California was completed on time and on budget.
“The safety of our community has always been our top priority,” Jamul Indian Village of California Chairwoman Erica M. Pinto said. “As everyone knows, this community has been calling for improvements to our local roads for a long time. We are proud to invest in projects like the Lyons Valley Road improvements, building a controlled intersection light which will make travel on the roads through our community much safer for everyone.”
Among the sight distance improvements made are a new signal and safety enhancement measures for pedestrians, bicyclists, and all other road users. Warranted traffic signals at intersections reduce the number and severity of collisions by controlling intersection access and properly posted all-way stop controls assure that reasonable drivers enter the intersection at a low speed and have more time to take heed of the traffic situation.
In 2016, the Jamul Indian Village of California signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the County of San Diego ahead of the opening of the Jamul Casino. As part of the agreement, the Jamul Indian Village of California agreed to invest $3.7 million in road safety improvement in the area, including access improvements directly adjacent to the casino, as well as off-site access improvements at several SR-94 intersections, including the intersection at Lyons Valley. Consultants for the Jamul Indian Village of California have worked with County officials and Caltrans to develop the project. Funding has been provided by The Jamul Indian Village of California and proceeds from the Jamul Casino.

Notice of Construction Activity on State Route 94
The Jamul Indian Village (JIV) would like to notify the public that Caltrans has issued an Encroachment Permit (EP) for construction of SR-94 improvements between Melody Road and Reservation Road in Jamul. A Transportation Management Plan (TMP) has been reviewed and approved by Caltrans and will be implemented during the construction of the SR-94 improvements. The TMP was prepared pursuant to the standards and guidelines set forth by Caltrans.

It will remain a flashing yellow light temporarily, prior to becoming fully operational. In the meantime, access to Hollywood Casino and security around the property will remain the same until further notice.
Temporary signs and flaggers will continue to be placed on SR-94 during construction hours to ensure that these operations are conducted with maximum safety and minimal disruption to motorists.
