Scheduled work will improve access to the future Mid-Coast Trolley station
San Diego CA— Starting Friday, June 14, at 9 p.m. and continuing through Monday, June 17, at 5 a.m., a full closure of the northbound Interstate 5 (I-5) off-ramp to Balboa Avenue will take effect.
The closure is necessary for Mid-Coast Trolley crews to continue street improvements associated with the Balboa Avenue Trolley station. Crews will widen the I-5 off-ramp from one to two lanes and install a permanent traffic signal at the intersection of the off-ramp and Balboa Avenue. Following the weekend closure, the off-ramp will re-open and the traffic signal will go into operation.
During the closure, lane restrictions will be in place on Balboa Avenue and Garnet Avenue, between Mission Bay Drive and Moraga Avenue to allow for one lane of travel in each direction. Traffic controls and detour signs will be in place to alert motorists in advance.
*Schedules are subject to change
The Mid-Coast Trolley Project will extend Blue Line Trolley service from Old Town Transit Center to the University community, serving major activity centers such as Mission Bay, the VA Medical Center, UC San Diego, and University Towne Centre. Nine new stations will be constructed. Major construction work began in 2016, with service anticipated to begin in late 2021.
