Construction Advisory: Reduced Lanes Overnight on Genesee Avenue Through March


From Keep San Diego Moving.

Genesee I-5 Interchange Lane ClosuresClosure: Beginning Monday, January 18 and continuing through March, motorists can expect reduced lanes overnight on Genesee Avenue between Interstate 5 (I-5) and the main entrance to Scripps Memorial Hospital.

Crews will close lanes on eastbound Genesee Avenue to work on a retaining wall east of the freeway. During the closure, two-way traffic will shift to the westbound side of Genesee Avenue. See the graphic for details. Monday-Thursday night closures will occur between 9 PM and 5 AM. On Fridays, closures will occur between 9 PM and 8 AM.

Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained. We appreciate your patience as we work to improve the interchange.

Detour: Eastbound lanes will begin to narrow just west of the interchange. Two-way traffic will be maintained on the westbound side of Genesee Avenue during the closure. Flaggers will be on-site to assist motorists and bicyclists.

Minimal delays are expected due to low nighttime traffic volumes.

Additional Closures: Throughout January and February, ongoing construction requires intermittent, overnight lane closures on I-5, Genesee Avenue, and the on- and off-ramps at the interchange.
