Traffic

SAN DIEGO — State Route 78 has reopened near Ramona after a dump truck overturned, causing an hours-long road closure.

California Highway Patrol’s El Cajon office said SR-78 just west of Indian Oaks Road was closed as crews worked to right the dump truck and clear debris from the roadway.

Caltrans first announced the closure around 7:39 a.m. Tuesday. One lane was initially blocked, but the closure was expanded after 9 a.m.

All lanes reopened before noon, Caltrans said.
