Early Wednesday California Highway Patrol announced an emergency road closure at a busy freeway transition on Interstate 805 south to last through the early evening hours on Wednesday.

Caltrans maintenance crews closed the southbound I-805 connector to eastbound state Route 52 Wednesday afternoon. Just before 6 p.m. the closure was lifted and all lanes were reopened. 

Caltrans said the closure was requested to make temporary repairs to a deteriorated bridge expansion joint. 

CHP suggested the following alternate routes for commuters: 

  • Southbound I-5 to Eastbound SR-52
  • Eastbound SR-56 to Southbound I-15 to SR-52

Motorists on southbound I-805 were directed to exit at Clairemont Mesa Boulevard east, then take northbound I-805 to eastbound SR-52.
