Night Work Scheduled for Interstate 805

SAN DIEGO – Southbound Interstate 805 (I-805) will be closed between the Interstate 5/805 merge to Mira Mesa Boulevard beginning Sunday, May 8 from 9 until 5 the following morning, according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).

Motorists on southbound I-5 wanting to continue on to I-805 are asked to use the "Local Bypass" lane. Detour signs will be in place to assist motorists around the closures.

The closures will allow highway workers to temporarily modify the lane striping so construction barriers can be placed in the median allowing crews to extend Carroll Canyon Road under I-805 and build an HOV lane in each direction along the freeway to and from I-5 to Carroll Canyon Road.

The project is expected to be completed in early 2013.
