All southbound lanes of Interstate 5 in Encinitas will be closed for a period of time on Wednesday for construction, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) announced.
The closure is scheduled for 12 to 4 a.m. Wednesday from La Costa Avenue to Encinitas Boulevard, the agencies said. It will make space for Build North Coast Corridor construction crews to place a new sign structure from the freeway median to the outside shoulder near Leucadia Boulevard.
Anyone with plans to travel on the southbound lanes during the scheduled closure will be required to exit at La Costa Avenue and be directed east to El Camino Real. Drivers will then be able to renter I-5 south on Encinitas Boulevard.
