Ed. Note: Caltrans has delayed the planned closure due to rain
Construction will close all lanes of Interstate 805 in both directions near the merge with Interstate 5 over three nights this week.
Caltrans will be painting new stripes along the southbound lanes from the merge to just south of Mira Mesa Boulevard/Vista Sorrento Parkway from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Wednesday and Thursday according to a Caltrans news release.
Crews will be doing the same thing for the northbound lanes in the same area from 10:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. on Thursday and Friday.
Highway signs will direct drivers to a detour.
The work will help open the new freeway carpool lanes but the Direct Access Ramp (DAR) will not open until next month.
