Caltrans is starting work on a $5.3 million project to replace pavement and make other repairs on Interstate 5 from Camino de la Plaza in San Ysidro to L Street in Chula Vista, and on Interstate 805 from Palm Avenue to 18th Street in National City.

Work will take place Sundays through Thursdays from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. with some weekend work as needed. The project is expected to be completed in the fall.

SANDAG, which is coordinating local gas tax projects, has reported that a total of $867 million is earmarked for road repairs and transit improvements throughout the county.
