Sorrento Valley Boulevard Closed for Night Work

SAN DIEGO – Sorrento Valley Boulevard underneath Interstate 805 (I-805) will be closed in both directions nightly beginning Tuesday, according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans). The road will be closed Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Eastbound vehicles will be detoured south on Sorrento Valley Road to Mira Mesa Boulevard then north to Vista Sorrento Parkway. Westbound vehicles will be detoured south Vista Sorrento Parkway to Mira Mesa Boulevard then north on Sorrento Valley Road. Detour signs will be posted to assist motorists around the closure.

The work is part of a $90.3 million construction project to extend Carroll Canyon Road under I-805 and build an HOV lane in each direction along the freeway to and from Interstate 5 to Carroll Canyon Road. The project is expected to be completed by late 2012 or early 2013.
