The Department of Motor Vehicles announced today that its field office in San Clemente will close at noon Friday and is not expected to re-open until March 18.
Workers will be replacing the roof, according to a DMV press release. But officials have also found mold in the building.
"To ensure the health and safety of employees and customers, the project schedule has been moved up so that a mold problem that has been detected in the facility can be effectively treated and eradicated by contamination experts," states a DMV press release.
A March 18 re-opening could be changed if there are any weather delays.
Until then, motorists -- or wanna be motorists -- are directed to use the following branches:
- Laguna Hills, 23535 Moulton Parkway, 16 miles away
- Oceanside, 4005 Plaza Drive, 30 miles away
- Costa Mesa, 650 W. 19th Street, 30 miles away
