All Lanes of Northbound I-805 Closed Thursday Night at Mira Mesa Boulevard

SAN DIEGO – The California Department of Transportation has scheduled a full freeway closure of northbound Interstate 805 (I-805) at Mira Mesa Boulevard/Sorrento Valley Road Thursday night at 11:30. The freeway will reopen Friday morning at 5.

Motorists will detoured at Mira Mesa Boulevard/Sorrento Valley Road, to north Vista Sorrento Parkway then west on Carmel Mountain Road and back on to northbound Interstate 5 (I-5).

Changeable Message Signs will be posted on northbound I-805 south of the State Route 52 (SR-52) interchange with the posted detour message to use westbound SR- 52 to northbound I-5.

The work is part of the $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.
