Overnight Closures of Telegraph Canyon Road and East H Street Ramps at Interstate 805 Scheduled

SAN DIEGO – The southbound Interstate 805 (I-805) off-ramp to Telegraph Canyon Road in Chula Vista will be closed Sunday through Thursday from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. for about four weeks to make drainage improvements. The northbound I-805 East H Street off-ramp and southbound I-805 East H Street on-ramp may also be closed intermittently during this same time period.

Freeway message signs will be posted north of the East H Street exit to south of the Telegraph Canyon Road exit to provide motorists with real-time detour information.
Drainage improvements and bridge work are part of the first phase of the $1.4 billion I-805 South Express Lanes Project in South County. Construction on the first phase of the project began in June.

Work 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.

Find out more about the project at or call the project hotline at (888) 941-5005.

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