|Traffic alert: on Sunday, August 18, Caltrans will close a seven-mile stretch in both directions of I-805 from SR 54 in Chula Vista to SR 905 in Otay Mesa. The stoppage is scheduled for 3 p.m. Sunday until 5 a.m. August 19.
During that time, crews will demolish the East Palomar Street bridge, which will eventually be replaced by another bridge, direct carpool access ramps, a transit station and park and ride.
Drivers will be asked to take either the I-5 or the SR 125 toll road, also known as the South Bay Expressway, which will be toll-free during that time. Plan ahead as traffic is expected to be congested on those roads.
