Overnight freeway closures on Interstate 5

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A series of overnight freeway closures occurred last night through early Monday morning on southbound Interstate 5 in order to complete construction work between the I-5/Interstate-805 interchange and La Jolla Colony Drive.

The I-5 south will be closed from the interchange to La Jolla Colony Drive from 9:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night, Sunday through Thursday, through at least June 28th.

SANDAG says the closures will allow for construction of two Metropolitan Transit System trolley overpasses, which will span I-5 at Voigt Drive and south of Nobel Drive.

After the work is completed, a full closure of northbound I-5 will also be required, though dates and work windows for the northbound closures have not yet been released.
