Camp Pendleton and I-5 Temporally Closed to Bicycles
SAN DIEGO –– Camp Pendleton from the Main Gate to the Las Pulgas Gate will be closed Monday through Friday for military operations. The Interstate 5 (I-5) shoulders between Harbor Drive and Las Pulgas Road are also closed to bicycle traffic due to highway construction. An on-call shuttle will be available for bicyclists who need to travel through the area.
Signs will be posted at pick-up and drop-off locations providing the telephone number to call to arrange for the shuttle. Bicyclists are advised to expect a delay in waiting for arrival of the shuttle.
Pick-up and drop-off locations for the shuttle are:
- Northbound at Basilone Road; and
- Southbound at Las Pulgas Road.
Caltrans is providing the free on-call shuttle service at (619) 385-3267 as part of the I-5 Ocean View Rehab Project. The freeway shoulders in this area are normally open to bicyclists travelling between Oceanside and San Clemente as an alternate route to Camp Pendleton.
