Temporary Overnight Closure of State Route 54 at Interstate 805 Scheduled Next Two Weeks
SAN DIEGO-- State Route 54 (SR-54) will be temporarily closed to motorists in both directions at Interstate 805 (I-805) overnight, mid-week during the next two weeks to accommodate work to widen the freeway bridge, according to Caltrans.
The freeway will be closed from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., Wednesday through Friday, from January 2 – 4, and Sunday through Friday, from January 6 – 11. Motorists will be detoured around the closure, but should avoid the area if possible.
DETOURS ARE AS FOLLOWS:
Westbound SR-54 at I-805 closure: Drivers traveling west on SR-54 will be detoured onto northbound I-805. Drivers will then exit at East Plaza Boulevard, take I-805 south, exit at SR 54 and continue west.
Eastbound SR-54 at I-805 closure: Drivers traveling east on SR-54 will be detoured onto southbound I-805. Drivers will then exit at Bonita Road, take I-805 north, exit at SR-54 and continue east.
Northbound I-805 to westbound SR-54 ramp closure: Drivers traveling north on I-805 who wish to go west on SR-54 will be detoured to East Plaza Boulevard. Drivers will then take I-805 south to westbound SR-54.
Southbound I-805 to eastbound SR-54 ramp closure: Drivers traveling south on I-805 who want to go east on SR-54 will be detoured onto Bonita Road. Drivers will then take I-805 north to eastbound SR-54.
The I-805 South Project includes building one carpool lane in each direction along an eight-mile segment of the freeway from East Palomar Street in Chula Vista to State Route 94 in San Diego. Work is scheduled for completion in fall 2013.
