    An $86 million freeway improvement project that will bring new lanes to northbound Interstate 805 is set to begin construction Monday, Caltrans officials said.

    The four-mile long project is designed to build one carpool lane in each direction of I-805 between Mira Mesa Boulevard and State Route 52.

    Caltrans says the project in Golden Triangle will also build south-facing Direct Access Ramps at Carroll Canyon Road. Additional improvements include bridge widening and ramp and noise barrier modifications.

    The project is aimed to help reduce traffic congestion. It’s one of several current construction projects happening along the I-805 corridor. The work on this particular project is expected to be completed by the winter of 2015.

    Caltrans says the majority of the construction work will occur overnight, between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. Motorists are urged to drive defensively and alertly in construction work zones.

    For more information, motorists can call the I-805 North Hotline at (877) 821-4280 or visit this website.
