I-805 Closures in the Golden Triangle

SAN DIEGO—Caltrans will close southbound Interstate 805 (I-805) from State Route 52 (SR-52) to Interstate 5 (I-5) Sunday through Wednesday nights from 9:30 to 5 in the morning. Additionally, all northbound I-805 lanes will be closed from SR-52 to I-5 on Thursday night from 9:30 to 5 in the morning. The closures are needed for striping the new carpool lanes and Direct Access Ramp (DAR), which are scheduled to open later this month.

During the closures, northbound motorists will be detoured to westbound SR-52 to northbound I-5, and southbound traffic will be detoured to southbound I-5 to east bound SR-52 to northbound I-805.

Stage 1 of the I-805 North Express Lanes Project is constructing one carpool lane in each direction in the median of I-805 from just north of SR-52 to just north of Mira Mesa Boulevard and a south-facing Direct Access Ramp at Carroll Canyon Road. The construction cost for Stage 1 is about $86 million and is funded with state, federal and local sources, including the Proposition 1B State – Local Partnership Program and TransNet Extension funds.

Project information is available at or by calling the Project Hotline at (877) 821-4280. Follow and visit to keep current on transportation information.
