Northbound I-805 Closed Wednesday Night

SAN DIEGO – Crews will close northbound Interstate 805 (I-805) from La Jolla Village Drive/Miramar Road to Interstate 5 (I-5) Wednesday night at 9:30 until 5 in the morning, according to Caltrans.  The closure is needed to pour concrete as part of ongoing improvements to accommodate new carpool lanes along I-805.

Detour signs will be placed directing northbound motorists onto westbound State Route 52 (SR-52) to northbound I-5 then onto northbound or southbound I-805.  Travelers will be allowed to exit at Nobel Drive and Governor Drive. 

Construction schedules are subject to change depending on the weather conditions.

Stage 1 of the I-805 North Express Lanes Project will construct one carpool lane in each direction in the median of I-805 from SR-52 to Mira Mesa Boulevard.  The project also includes construction of a Direct Access Ramp to and from southbound I-805 at Carroll Canyon Road.  Additional improvements include bridge widening and ramp modifications. 

Project information is available at or by calling the Project Hotline at (877) 821-4280.  Follow and visit to keep current on transportation information.

Motorists are reminded to Be Work Zone Alert and to Move Over a lane when safe to do so, or slow when highway workers are present with amber lights flashing.
