Sharing the I-805 north roadway with carpoolers in new express lanes takes heavy construction wok that keeps drivers traveling the freeway without the comfort in full width lanes, from just north of Mira Mesa Boulevard to highway 52. The big inconvenience in August was driving an extra northbound length up to Nobel Drive, exiting and getting back on the southbound lane, and coming back south just to go west on Governor Drive.
Work demolishing the partitions at the Governor Drive bridge kept the wheels spinning patiently for the extra length.
Barriers have stood in place since highway workers put the blockades in during April. The entire distance from the highway 52 to just north of La Jolla Village Drive.
Lane work on both sides of the I-805 is just the main part of the work on the I-805 north project. Putting in south facing direct access ramps at Carroll Canyon Road takes more time off the work clock.
Traffic delays might tighten up a driver's schedule into 2015. The year the work on a wide, and convenient, yet safe, I-805 north will end.
The freeway still behind the contemporary times, times the north in La Jolla is filled with fast moving commute flows, needs the piecemeal work the city, with Caltrans, and the federal government, guaranteed will last many years by covering the billions dollars cost. Speed is not simply a joy on the freeway. Drivers count on the workers building standard grade road lanes that pass the test on minute by minute driving progress. San Diegans, today, take time off the clock much more like the main stream drivers on the LA freeways than the days last century the city was in the middle of building an interchange connected travel works, for drivers in high gear on fresh ridden wheels, out to the city limits, and beyond.
