SAN DIEGO——Maintenance crews will close the northbound Interstate 5 (I-5) connector to eastbound State Route 78 (SR-78) Saturday from 3-7 a.m. for pavement repair, according to Caltrans.

Signs will be posted directing motorists on northbound I-5 to exit at Oceanside Boulevard, turn right onto Oceanside Boulevard, to southbound I-5 to eastbound SR-78.

Caltrans reminds drivers to “Be Work Zone Alert” by avoiding distracted driving, paying constant attention to traffic, and slowing down when approaching road closures.

Californians can expect more roadway improvement projects like this made possible by the recently passed Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017, Senate Bill 1 (SB 1).
