I-805 HOV/Carroll Canyon Road Extension Project
The project will include the extension of Carroll Canyon Road under I-805, construction of a high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane in each direction along I-805 from I-5 to Carroll Canyon Road, and construction of a northerly Direct Access Ramp (DAR) from the Carroll Canyon Road Extension to the HOV lanes (Unit 2). This will complete a continuous 10-mile HOV lane in each direction from Mira Mesa Boulevard on I-805 to Manchester Avenue on I-5 (Unit 1). This project is scheduled to open to traffic in December 2012.
The project cost is estimated at $69.6 million and will be financed by the city of San Diego and a combination of Corridor Mobility Improvement Account (CMIA) and TransNet funds. CMIA funds were allocated from the Proposition 1B transportation bond voters passed in November 2006 and TransNet funds came from the local half-cent sales tax also approved by voters.
