SAN DIEGO –– Crews will close the northbound Interstate 805 (I-805) Sorrento Valley Road off-ramp from Friday at 9 p.m. until Monday at 5 a.m. The closure is necessary for pavement and restriping work as part of the I-805 North Express Lanes Project.
During the closure, motorists will be advised to exit at Vista Sorrento Parkway/Mira Mesa Boulevard, then travel north on Vista Sorrento Parkway, east on Mira Sorrento Place, south on Scranton Road and west on Mira Mesa Boulevard to Sorrento Valley Road.
