Closures of I-5 lanes at Gilman Drive: Some night work will require lane and/or ramp closures on I-5 for work on the new Gilman Drive Bridge. Motorists should anticipate delays and take alternate routes to avoid potential congestion. This is part of a series of overnight closures needed to complete bridge infrastructure.

Closures for Thursday, December 21, 2017:

  • On ramps from eastbound/westbound La Jolla Village Drive to northbound I-5
  • Reduced lanes on northbound I-5 from Nobel Drive to Voigt Drive

Concurrent with this project, SANDAG is designing and constructing the Mid-Coast Trolley project, an 11-mile extension of the San Diego Trolley Blue Line that runs parallel to and crosses over I-5. SANDAG is coordinating closely between the two projects to ensure smooth construction and effective use of space and resources.

First Concrete Poured on Iconic New Span Over I-5 (posted 12/4/17)

The first concrete was poured Thursday evening, November 30, on the Gilman Drive Bridge, an iconic new crossing that will soon gracefully span I-5 just north of the La Jolla Village Drive interchange. The new bridge will provide a much-needed connection between Gilman Drive on UC San Diego’s west campus and Medical Center Drive on the east campus.
