New carpool lanes on I-805 unveiled

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Two major Caltrans projects expected to help ease traffic congestion on Interstate 805 are being celebrated Wednesday.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony took place on two new miles of carpool lanes between the I-5/I-805 split and Carroll Canyon Road in Sorrento Valley.

On Wednesday afternoon, eight miles of carpool lanes between east Naples Street in Chula Vista and state Route 94 will be unveiled.

"For motorists, this means more choices. This is only the beginning of improvements for San Diego commuters," Laurie Berman of Caltrans said.

Both projects cost approximately $171 million of private and public money.
