Overnight Closure of Interstate 5 Scheduled for Tonight- October 8

Full closure of northbound lanes required to continue construction of Trolley overcrossing

La Jolla CA—Tonight, October 8, 2019, an overnight closure will go into effect on Interstate 5 (I-5) for construction of the future Mid-Coast Trolley overcrossing south of Nobel Drive. During the closure, crews will continue pouring concrete to form the Trolley bridge.

The following closure will be in place:

Tuesday, October 8, through Wednesday morning, October 9: 

  • Full closure of northbound lanes from State Route 52 (SR 52) to La Jolla Village Drive from 9:30 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Detour routes will be available via eastbound SR 52 and northbound Interstate 805.

This is a continuation of last week’s work, which required closures on southbound lanes. Over the next several weeks, additional closures will be required along I-5 as crews construct the Trolley overcrossing. Notices will be provided as work schedules are released.

*Schedules are subject to change

The Mid-Coast Trolley Project will extend 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.
