Southbound I-5 and I-805 Closures on September 23-25

To realign a portion of I-5 and expedite construction of new vehicle Port of Entry (POE) lanes, the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) will close all southbound lanes of I-5 and I-805 south of SR 905 for 57 hours, from Saturday, September 23, at 3 a.m. until Monday, September 25 at 12 p.m. Southbound traffic on these corridors will be detoured to SR 905; access to businesses and residents will be available via local roads.

During the closure, there will be no southbound vehicular access into Mexico through the San Ysidro Port of Entry (POE); all southbound traffic will be diverted to the Otay Mesa POE. At San Ysidro POE, cross-border access will be available for northbound vehicles, as well as northbound and southbound pedestrians. Travelers should expect longer than usual wait times at both ports of entry.

Roadway Resurfacing Starts Soon

Providing you with a smooth, reliable drive is important to all of us at South Bay Expressway. A roadway resurfacing project will begin in late September, when a method called bonded wearing course will be applied to the roadway. This process involves application of a quick drying asphalt layer on top of existing worn and cracked parts of the road; the result is a new, smooth surface that is usually drivable within one hour.

The repaving work is anticipated to take approximately 90 days to complete and some lane closures will occur during off-peak hours. Please take notice of any posted signs, and drive, as usual, with caution.

South Bay Rapid  Construction

Construction is underway on the South Bay Rapid Project,  a new level of transit service that will include 12 stations along a 26-mile route from the Otay Mesa Port of Entry to Downtown San Diego via eastern Chula Vista, connecting employment and activity centers in Downtown San Diego and South County. service in the South Bay is expected to begin in 2018. Ongoing construction may temporarily impact motorists along the South Bay Expressway.

When completed, the new bridge will allow transit vehicles to cross the South Bay Expressway while maintaining high-frequency, limited-stop service. Additionally, the guideway bridge will improve walking and biking access by connecting residents and communities west of the toll road with retail and entertainment options on the east side. As construction of the guideway bridge continues, motorists can expect temporary lane closures, detours, reduced lane widths, some night and weekend work, equipment and signage, and construction vehicles traveling in and out of the median and along the outside shoulder in the construction area.
