|Bonita Road will be closed sporadically overnight in both directions at Interstate 805 (I-805) through February 8 to accommodate work to widen the freeway bridge. Crews will also be restriping Bonita Road at I-805 during construction. Lane restriping may cause traffic backups. Motorists are urged to avoid the area or take alternative routes. Motorists will be detoured around Bonita Road at I-805 during nighttime closures.
Bridge improvements are part of the first phase of the I-805 South Project, a $1.4 billion effort to create a modern new transportation backbone for the South County. Construction on the first phase of the project began in June. Work includes building one carpool lane in each direction along an eight-mile segment of the freeway stretching from East Palomar Street in Chula Vista to State Route 94 in San Diego. The carpool lanes are scheduled to open in fall 2013.
Construction crews will work to minimize impacts to nearby businesses, residents, and commuters. Your patience is appreciated during construction.
