SAN DIEGO — Construction crews will close all lanes of eastbound State Route 905 (SR-905) at Tocayo Avenue Tuesday from 12:01 to 4:00 a.m., according to Caltrans. Workers will replace overhead signs on eastbound SR-905 above northbound I-5. Access will be closed from eastbound SR-905 to northbound Interstate 5 (I-5). The highway will reopen before the Tuesday morning commute.

Motorists on eastbound SR-905 will be directed to southbound I-5 to Dairy Mart Road. Turn left onto Dairy Mart Road east, then turn right onto West San Ysidro Boulevard, then turn right onto Via De San Ysidro to access 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.
