January 7, 2016 (Jamul) –Jodie LaRosh came upon this surreal scene this morning at 7 a.m. at State Route 94. At a dip in the road near Jamul Estates, rainfall had created a river flooding the road.
At 8:02 a.m., CHP asked for Caltrans to shut down the roadway. A t 8:27 CHP observed that “water is getting pretty deep” and again asked for a shutdown at Honey Springs and 94. But at 8:41 a.m., inexplicably, CHP posted, “SR 94 will remain open –there is a foot of water crossing from the creek.” Signs were posted to alert motorists.
