Overnight Closures of Sweetwater Road at Interstate 805

SAN DIEGO – Sweetwater Road at Interstate 805 (I-805) may be closed intermittently overnight during the next four weeks to accommodate work to widen the freeway bridge. The intermittent closures will be between the hours of 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. through May 3. Motorists are urged to avoid the area or take alternative routes.

DETOURS ARE AS FOLLOWS:

Westbound Sweetwater Road Closure at I-805: Drivers traveling west on Sweetwater Road will be detoured south onto Plaza Bonita Road, then west onto E Street/Bonita Road, north on 2nd Avenue to westbound Sweetwater Road.

The I-805 South Express Lanes 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. Construction of the carpool lanes is scheduled for completion in late 2013.
