San Diego, CA–A full southbound closure of the State Routes 125 toll road between State Route 54 and East H Street is planned for this weekend to accommodate the installation of new overhead tolling equipment.
This includes the closure of the eastbound and westbound SR 54 connectors to southbound SR 125.
The closure is scheduled from 8 p.m. on June 17, through 6 a.m. on June 20. During this time, the following closures will be in effect:
- Southbound SR 125 from SR 54 to East H Street
- Eastbound SR 54 connector to southbound SR 125
- Westbound SR 54 connector to southbound SR 125
The installation of the new tolling equipment is part of a broader effort to make upgrades along the SR 125 Toll Road and I-15 Express Lanes. The upgraded tolling technology will be able to read newer transponder models, including switchable FasTrak Flex and sticker-mounted transponders, and improve toll transactions between transponders and roadway equipment. This upgrade enables FasTrak equipment in the San Diego region to remain interoperable with partner FasTrak tolling agencies so San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) customers can access any FasTrak toll facility across the state. Roadway enhancements also include new automated payment machines for faster cash and card on-road transactions.
The weekend’s closure is one of several required throughout the length of the project to safely install new equipment. Upgrades to the tolling equipment on SR 125 began in late 2021 and are anticipated to be completed by the end of 2022. Installation of new roadway equipment on the I-15 Express Lanes was previously completed in 2021.
Detour signage will be in place to guide motorists around the closure via southbound I-805 to E H Street.
Construction schedules are subject to change. If work progresses ahead of schedule, the southbound lanes and SR 54 connectors will reopen early.
