SAN DIEGO – Sweetwater Road will be closed to motorists in both directions at Interstate 805 (I-805) in National City over the weekends of October 20-21 and 27-28 from 3 a.m. to midnight to accommodate work to widen the freeway bridge, according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).

Bicycle and pedestrian access will be maintained with marked detours and motorists will be detoured around the closure.

DETOURS ARE AS FOLLOWS:

Westbound Sweetwater Road Closure at I-805: Drivers traveling west on Sweetwater Road will be detoured south onto Plaza Bonita Road, then west onto E Street/Bonita Road, north on 2nd Avenue to westbound Sweetwater Road.

The I-805 South Project includes building one carpool lane in each direction along an eight-mile segment of the freeway from East Palomar Street in Chula Vista to State Route 94 in San Diego. Work is scheduled for completion in fall 2013.
