According to transporthint, State Route 52 or SR-52 is a state route and freeway in the U.S. state of California. The highway forms an east-west route in the vast metropolitan area of ​​San Diego. The highway runs from the La Jolla neighborhood to the Santee suburb, and is called the Soledad Freeway. The highway has little passing importance, nor is it a busy commuter route. The main point along the highway is the Miramar Marine Corps Air Station, which lies along much of the route. The highway is 29 kilometers long.

Travel directions

The highway begins at Interstate 5, the San Diego Freeway, in the San Clemente Canyon. Large parts of San Diego are made up of gorges and canyons, and SR-52 runs along one of them. The highway begins in the La Jolla neighborhood, one of San Diego’s most expensive neighborhoods, located on the ocean. However, SR-52 starts a few miles inland and heads east. There are 2×2 lanes available for traffic. The San Clemente Canyon is a fairly large nature reserve, in the middle of the city. This makes San Diego very different from its large neighbor Los Angeles, which is much more densely built. San Diego is much more playful, with the canyons as city parks. After a few kilometers you cross the Interstate 805, which forms San Diego’s eastern bypass. After this on the north side is the military base Miramar, leaving a large undeveloped area in the middle of San Diego about 18 kilometers long and 6 kilometers wide.

There is a large industrial estate in the area south of the highway. Here the highway is busier, due to traffic from I-805, and the highway has 2×3 lanes. The SR-163, the Cabrillo Freeway, is crossed in the middle of this business park. Barely a mile away, one crosses Interstate 15, which runs from San Diego to Las Vegas, through the eastern suburbs of Los Angeles, which, incidentally, is only 75 miles to the north. You then cross the Mission Trails Regional Park, making San Diego certainly not urban from this highway. After this park you enter the suburb of Santee, which has 55,000 inhabitants. Here one crosses the State Route 125, a north-south highway. State Route 52 then continues through a business park and ends at an interchange with State Route 67.


SR-52 was built primarily to relieve Interstate 8, which runs about 10 miles to the south. This proved successful, but this created bottlenecks at the connection with the Escondido Freeway (I-15), as the highway narrows here from 2×3 to 2×2 lanes. In 2007 a 4 kilometer long section was widened. On March 19, 2011, the last segment of the highway opened in Santee.

It is planned to build a 2-lane interchange lane between I-15 and SR-125 and widen the highway from 2×2 to 2×3 lanes to provide 5 lanes in rush hour. The project was postponed indefinitely in 2008.
