Slow Moving Trucks in Construction Zone

SAN DIEGO –As progress continues on the Interstate 805 (I-805) North Express Lanes Project, motorists are advised to exercise caution while driving through construction zones.  Slower moving construction vehicles will be entering and exiting the freeway median in both directions along I-805 from State Route 52 to just north of Mira Mesa Boulevard.  

Stage 1 of the I-805 North Express Lanes Project is constructing one carpool lane in each direction in the median of I-805 from just north of State Route 52 to just north of 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. This stage is estimated to cost approximately $86 million and is expected to be completed in summer 2016.

Motorists are urged to slow down during construction.  Be Work Zone Alert!
