Overnight Closure of I-5 Set for April 11

Freeway lanes to be closed for Mid-Coast Trolley bridge deck pour

San Diego CA— Thursday, April 11, at 9:30 p.m., and running through Friday, April 12, at 5 a.m., all southbound lanes on Interstate 5 (I-5) will be closed to vehicular traffic from the interchange of I-5 and Interstate 805 (I-805) to La Jolla Village Drive. Two northbound lanes will also be closed from La Jolla Village Drive to Genesee Avenue.

During the overnight closure, crews will pour concrete to build the bridge deck for the Trolley overpass spanning I-5 at Voigt Drive.

Motorists should plan to take alternate routes to avoid congestion. Southbound travel will be detoured via I-805 and State Route 52. A map of the construction and detour route, as well as additional information on the closure and work being performed, is available at KeepSanDiegoMoving.com/MidCoastNotices.
