Caltrans and SANDAG crews are conducting a planned Interstate 5 ramp closure this weekend in the City of Encinitas and Carlsbad.
The ramp closure will begin Friday at 9 p.m. and reopen on Monday at 5 a.m. at the southbound I-5 on-ramp from La Costa Avenue in Encinitas. Detour signage will be in place to guide motorists around this closure via northbound I-5 to Poinsettia Lane in Carlsbad.
The closure is part of the $870 million Build NCC project that will allow crews to realign interchange ramps to accommodate two new Carpool/ High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes.
