SAN MARCOS – More than 80 people spent yesterday morning walking up the freshly paved road that soon will open to motorists traveling between Cal State San Marcos and San Elijo Hills.

Road extension-dedication ceremony When: 3:30 p.m. Wednesday Where: Twin Oaks Valley Road just south of Craven Road, San Marcos

Admission: Free

Fare: Refreshments will be served to celebrate the long-awaited Twin Oaks Valley Road extension before it opens Thursday.

The approximately $25 million road extension between Twin Oaks Valley Road and San Elijo Road officially opens to traffic Thursday. The steep new road is expected to cut commute time because it will provide a more direct route for motorists moving between the southern and southwestern parts of the city.

The extension was built by the city of San Marcos and HomeFed Corp., the developer of San Elijo Hills. READ THE ENTIRE UT ARTICLE
