SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- SANDAG and Caltrans are warning people about an overnight closure on Interstate 5 beginning Thursday night for work on the Mid-Coast Trolley Bridge.

Starting February 28 at 9:30 p.m., all southbound lanes on Interstate 5 will be closed from the interchange of I-5 and I-805 to La Jolla Village Drive. All lanes are scheduled to reopen on March 1 at 5 a.m.

The lanes will be closed so crews can pour concrete to construct the structure for the Trolley overpass spanning I-5 at Voigt Drive.

SANDAG says traffic signs have been posted in the area detailing the detour motorists can take.

The Mid-Coast Trolley Project will extend the Blue Line Trolley service from Old Town north to University City.

Nine new stations will also be constructed.
