Otay Mesa road to be closed overnight for repairs

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A stretch of Otay Mesa road will be closed Thursday night so construction crews can make adjustments to temporary support structures overhead.

The roadway will be closed in both directions between Sanyo Avenue and La Media Road from 8 p.m. today until 5 a.m. Friday, according to Caltrans. State transit officials said the closure was necessary so crews can do the work on a bridge over Otay Mesa Road.

Westbound traffic on Otay Mesa Road will instead take Sanyo Avenue to Airway Road, then La Media Road to Otay Mesa Road. Eastbound travelers will use the same detour route in the opposite direction.

Access to state Route 125 will not be affected, according to Caltrans.

The construction work is part of a $21.5 million effort to ease border congestion by connecting northbound state routes 905, 125 and 11. The project is expected to be completed later this year.
