Southbound I-5 Off-Ramps to Carmel Valley Road and Carmel Mountain Road Closed Saturday Morning

SAN DIEGO – Motorists on southbound Interstate 5 (I-5) will not be able to access inland areas at Carmel Valley and Carmel Mountain roads on Saturday from 5 until 10 in the morning due to emergency repair work.  According to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), highway maintenance crews will be making guardrail and attenuator repairs on the local bypass.

Motorists can take the Del Mar Heights Road off-ramp, go east on Del Mar Heights Road and turn right onto El Camino Real to access eastbound State Route 56, Carmel Mountain Road and Carmel Valley Road.

Alternatively, motorists can continue southbound on I-5 and take the Genesee Avenue off-ramp from I-5 or the Mira Mesa Road off-ramp from I-805 and then get back onto the freeway in the northbound direction to access inland routes.
