Motorists Urged to Avoid Northbound I-5 at Santa Fe Drive

SAN DIEGO – Motorists are advised to avoid using northbound Interstate 5 in the vicinity of Santa Fe Drive in Encinitas.  One freeway lane and the Santa Fe Drive off-ramp are closed due to emergency repairs, according to Caltrans.

Highway workers expect to make the repairs and have the freeway lane reopened in time for the afternoon commute, but residual traffic delays are expected.  Repairs to the Santa Fe Drive ramp may take longer.  The problem is described as large potholes in the pavement.
