Full overnight closure of southbound I-5 scheduled March 8

A full closure of Southbound I-5 from the I-805 merge to La Jolla Village Drive is scheduled for March 8 due to the Gilman Drive Bridge construction.

On Thursday, March 8, all of the southbound lanes on Interstate 5, from the I-805 merge to La Jolla Village Drive, will be temporarily closed overnight to make adjustments to the Gilman Drive falsework (temporary structures used to support the Gilman Drive bridge until final construction is completed). Motorists should anticipate delays and take alternate routes to avoid potential congestion.

Closures are scheduled on Thursday, March 8 through early morning Friday, March 9, from 9:30 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Southbound motorists will be detoured via Interstate 805. Traffic controls and detour signs will be in place to alert motorists in advance.
