SAN DIEGO - California Highway Patrol warned of heavy traffic conditions on state Route 94 due to the opening of The Hollywood Casino Monday.

The Hollywood Casino is located at 14145 Campo Road in Jamul.

The traffic advisory extends between state Route 125 and Honey Springs Road as well as state Route 54 and SR-94 junction.  Due to the very heavy traffic conditions, CHP has dispatched several officers to the area in an attempt to alleviate the traffic, which is backed up for several miles in all directions.

Campo Rd. will remain open with CHP and Caltrans units on scene to assist with traffic control.
