Short Term Ramp Closure to the Northbound I-805 University Avenue On-ramp

SAN DIEGO – Crews from the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will close the northbound University Avenue on-ramp to Interstate 805 on Thursday from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m.  The ramp has been closed from two lanes to one lane as Caltrans finishes repairing a water pipe that broke in mid-February. 

Construction crews will be place concrete barriers along the ramp in preparation of repaving and stripping work.   The ramp will re-open at 1 a.m. with one lane still closed.  Normal operation of the ramp is expected by mid-April. 

Changeable message signs are in place in advance of the closure to notify motorists of this work.   Motorists are encouraged to leave extra time for their commute.  

For more information contact the Caltrans Public Information Office at (619) 688-6670.
