SANDAG: Weekend closures scheduled on Genesee near Westfield UTC and on Balboa at I-5

Courtesy of SANDAG:


Starting at 10:45 p.m. on Sunday, July 9 through 5 a.m. on Monday, July 10, Genesee Avenue will be closed from Nobel Drive to La Jolla Village Drive. Both northbound and southbound traffic will be detoured during this time.

Please follow posted detour signage and use caution when travelling near the work area. This closure will be in effect to accommodate trench paving and plate removal activities for the Mid-Coast Trolley.


Crews are continuing to work on utility line relocation near Balboa Avenue/Garnet Avenue. To complete this work, the off-ramp from northbound I-5 to eastbound Balboa Avenue will be closed on Sunday, July 9, from 3 a.m. to 10 a.m.

Detour routes are available by taking the northbound I-5 exit at Clairemont Drive/Mission Bay Drive.

Additionally, work will require brief, intermittent closures on I-5 for crews to safely and efficiently transfer existing electric distribution lines across the freeway. The intermittent closures are scheduled for Sunday, July 9, between the hours of 6 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. Please anticipate delays of up to 10 minutes on both southbound and northbound I-5 near the Balboa Avenue exits while California Highway Patrol monitors traffic flow to allow crews to complete this work. Closures may be longer than 10 minutes if necessary to ensure public safety.

We appreciate your patience.
