Apparent Low Bidder Named for I-805 Carroll Canyon Project

SAN DIEGO – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is reviewing the bids submitted for the Interstate 805 (I-805) Carroll Canyon Project.  Diablo Contractors from San Ramon has submitted the low bid of $47.2 million.  Caltrans will announce the contract winner within the next two months.

The project will extend Carroll Canyon Road under I-805 and build a high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane in each direction along I-805 from Carroll Canyon Road north to I-5. A northerly Direct Access Ramp (DAR) will also be added from the Carroll Canyon Road Extension to the HOV lanes. The project will complete a continuous 10-mile HOV lane in each direction from Mira Mesa Boulevard on I-805 to Manchester Avenue on I-5.

Work may begin in early spring and take approximately two years to complete.  For more information please log onto http://www.keepsandiegomoving.com/I-5-Corridor/I-5-project-carrollcanyon.aspx or call the Caltrans Public Information Office at (619) 688-6670.
