Ramps at I-805 Sorrento Valley Road/Vista Sorrento Parkway Closed for Weekend Work

SAN DIEGO – The northbound Interstate 805 (I-805) off-ramp at Sorrento Valley Road/Vista Sorrento Parkway will be closed this weekend, according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans). The ramp will close Friday night at 7 and reopen Monday morning at 5.

Caltrans construction crews have placed Changeable Message Signs in advance of the closure to alert motorists. Detour signs will be posted directing motorists north to the Carmel Mountain Road off-ramp then back onto the southbound freeway to the Sorrento Valley Road/Vista Sorrento Parkway off-ramp.

The work is part of a $90.3 million construction project to extend Carroll Canyon Road under I-805 and build an HOV lane in each direction along the freeway to and from Interstate 5 to Carroll Canyon Road. The project is expected to be completed by late 2012 or early 2013.
