Interstate 5/State Route 94 Connector Ramp Closures this Week

SAN DIEGO – The connector ramp from southbound Interstate 5 to eastbound State Route 94 (SR-94) will be closed from 11:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. beginning Sunday and ending Friday morning, according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).

Crews will clean and treat the bridge deck with a protective sealant as part of routine bridge maintenance.   

Portable message signs have been placed in advance to advise motorists of the closure and detour.  Motorists can take the Imperial Avenue/17th Street exit, cross under the freeway and turn left on 19th Street to eastbound SR-94. 

Motorists are asked to watch for highway workers and to use extra care when driving near work zones.
