SAN DIEGO — The southbound Interstate 5 (I-5) connector to eastbound State Route 905 (SR-905) will be closed tonight at 11:30 to 4:30 Tuesday morning to replace overhead signs, according to Caltrans.

Crews will also close all lanes of eastbound SR-905 at Tocayo Avenue Tuesday morning from 12:01 to 4:00, resulting in no access from eastbound SR-905 to northbound I-5.

  • Motorists at eastbound SR-905 and southbound I-5 will be detoured along southbound I-5 to Dairy Mart Road. Turn left onto Dairy Mart Road east, then turn right onto West San Ysidro Boulevard, then look for signs to turn right onto northbound I-5 and onward to eastbound SR-905.
  • Motorists on Tocayo Avenue may use the above detour at southbound I-5 to access northbound I-5 and eastbound SR-905.

The work is part of a county-wide project to install self-reflective signs that use headlights from highway vehicles to illuminate the sign. The new signs will enhance nighttime visibility and will replace signs requiring light fixtures to light up the signs. Caltrans engineers estimate that the new signs will reduce electrical use by seven percent.
