Northbound I-805 near University City to be closed overnight

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A stretch of Interstate 805 near University City will be closed Tuesday as Caltrans crews restripe lanes on the northbound freeway.

The closure is expected to happen overnight between La Jolla Village Drive and Interstate 5. It will extend from 9:30 Tuesday to 5 a.m. Wednesday, according to Caltrans.

Most northbound traffic will be diverted onto westbound state Route 52, then onto northbound Interstate 5. State transit officials said motorists headed to destinations within the closure area would be allowed off the freeway at Governor and Nobel drives.

The work is part of an $86 million effort to add carpool lanes from just north of state Route 52 to north of Mira Mesa Boulevard and a direct access ramp at Carroll Canyon Road, according to Caltrans.
