I-5 trafficSAN DIEGO — Two lanes of northbound Interstate 5 will be closed overnight beginning Sunday for construction work, Caltrans announced Friday.

The lanes will be closed between Interstate 8 and Sea World Drive between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. from Sunday to Thursday. Drivers passing through the area should allow extra time, because the traffic volume is high even at night, Caltrans said.

The work is part of a project to add lanes to the connector ramp from westbound I-8 to northbound I-5 and to northbound I-5 between the interchange and Sea World Drive. The project is scheduled for completion in Summer 2016.
