First Phase Construction Of SR 905 Underway

Posted: Updated:
A new road project is promising to help improve trade between California and Mexico.

Work started Wednesday on the first phase of State Route 905, which includes three miles of freeway from Britannia Boulevard to Interstate 805, an interchange at Caliente Avenue and new offramps, according to Caltrans. The six lane freeway from the Otay Mesa Port of Entry to Interstate 805 will help improve the flow of goods across the border.

The $76.8 million project will help create 1400 jobs and was funded with federal economic stimulus money.

The project is set to be completed in 2012.
