The first phase of the SR 76 East Segment improved the interchange at SR 76 and I-15 and was completed in August 2013. 

Construction of the second phase, which widened and realigned SR 76 to a four-lane highway from just east of South Mission Road to the newly improved SR 76/I-15 interchange, began in November 2014 and was completed in May 2017.


The project cost was $202 million. This project was funded with a mix of funds: the regional TransNet half-cent sales tax for transportation, federal funds, developer fees, County of San Diego Transportation Impact Fee, and Native American tribes' contributions.
