I-5/Genesee Avenue Interchange Project
The Interstate 5 (I-5)/Genesee Avenue Interchange Project replaced the existing six-lane Genesee Avenue overpass with a ten-lane structure that is able to accommodate
current and future traffic demands in this job intensive community. The project was an integral piece of the broader improvements planned along I-5 in the North Coast
Corridor. Along with the replacement of the overcrossing, the project widened the freeway access ramps, added an auxiliary lane in the northbound direction on I-5 between Genesee Avenue
and Roselle Street, repaved existing general purpose lanes from Genesee Avenue to Sorrento Valley Road with a new rubberized asphalt mix, and constructed a new, separated bicycle/pedestrian path. By providing links to transportation, employment centers, hospitals, and UC San Diego,
the completed project will greatly improve the movement of people and goods through the area.
