New traffic light infuriating divers in Kearny Mesa

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Caltrans' newly installed traffic light along Clairemont Mesa Boulevard is causing trouble for drivers heading East to get on the freeway. 

The maze on Clairemont Mesa Boulevard and State Route 163 has become more complicated due to road work, lane closures and the newly installed traffic light. 

Caltrans has been working on a major overhaul project on the interchange West of SR-163. 

According to Caltrans, it's a short term pain, for a long term gain. 

Though Caltrans said it's short term, the second light will be there at least a year until the road project is completed. 

The light's permanent home will be farther down the road from its current location, closer to the freeway. 

Caltrans is asking drivers to be patient, and maybe look for an alternative route to get to destinations.
