San Diegans will drive on a wider I-5 overcrossing on Genessee Avenue. The Caltrans work on easing crowded traffic at the interchange is now a funded deal with the city.

City councilmembers, this week, approved the use of interchange money, and transfers to the project fund from the city's five year capital improvement project money and an old project fund used for building easterly ramps for the I-805 on Miramar Road.

North University Cty developers contributed 1,365,000 dollars and 304,000 dollars to the freeway project fund.

Caltrans will use the funds to pay for the bridge replacement and an interchange rebuild at the signaled intersection. WOrkers will lay in auxillary lanes on a widened road. Bicycle travel on Genessee Avenue will be more convenient, and safer, after Caltrans workers put in new bike lanes from 0.4 miles south of the overcrossing up to the north side of the crossing.

Caltrans also agreed to relocate a 24 inch potable water main and a 10 inch reclaimed water main that run along Genessee Avenue, and upgrade the pipes. The state workers will replace the 10 inch reclaimed water pipe with a 24 inch pipe.
