Southbound I-805 Connector to Westbound SR-54 Closed Thursday

SAN DIEGO – The southbound Interstate 805 (I-805) connector to westbound State Route 54 (SR-54) will be closed Thursday from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).

The closure is needed so that multiple crews can safely make repairs, remove graffiti and remove dry brush.

Changeable Message Signs will be posted to detour southbound I-805 motorists to eastbound SR-54, to Reo Drive north, to westbound SR-54.

Motorists may take an alternate detour from southbound I-805 to Bonita Road east, to northbound 805, to westbound SR-54.

Motorists are reminded to slow down and safely move over a lane when they see Caltrans or other emergency vehicles displaying flashing amber lights. Itís the law!
