|The East Palomar Street Bridge in Chula Vista will be closed over Interstate 805 (I-805) beginning on July 8 for approximately one year. The closure is required to replace the bridge as part of the construction of a Direct Access Ramp (DAR), Transit Station and Park & Ride. When the project is completed in winter
2014, the DAR will offer a convenient location from which carpools and
vanpools can access the carpool lanes currently under construction on I-805.
Public safety is Caltrans’ top priority and every precaution will be taken to
ensure the protection of both workers and motorists during construction.
Motorists will be detoured around the closure. We appreciate your patience
About the Project: Construction of the East Palomar Street DAR, Transit Station and Park & Ride is part of the first phase of the I-805 South Express
Lanes Project, a $1.4 billion effort to create a modern new transportation backbone for South County. The project is expected to be completed in 2014.
