Emergency Lane Closure on Northbound I-5 at San Mateo Creek
SAN DIEGO – Caltrans maintenance crews have closed one lane on northbound Interstate 5 between Basilone Road and San Mateo Creek just south of Cristianitos Road for emergency guardrail repairs.
The closure began this morning at 9 a.m. and is expected to continue through late this afternoon. Motorists are advised to expect long delays and avoid the area if possible.
Seventy-eight feet of guardrail and fifteen posts and block are being replaced as a result of an earlier traffic collision involving a semi-truck that collided through the guardrails.
Caltrans reminds motorists to drive alertly and to slow when nearing and passing the work zone.
