Caltrans officers introduced Sunday that the development of 4 remaining new miles of carpool lanes on Interstate 5 in North County will probably be accomplished Monday.

The brand new northbound lanes, between Palomar Airport Street in Carlsbad and State Route 78 in Oceanside, will hook up with the present 9 miles of HOV lanes on I-5 from Lomas Santa Fe Drive in Solana Seaside to Palomar Airport Street, the company mentioned.

The brand new southbound HOV lanes have been open since June 14.

Different ongoing initiatives in Carlsbad embrace a brand new sound wall close to Tamarack Avenue and pedestrian enhancements on the I-5 intersections close to Chestnut Avenue and Palomar Airport Street.

Building on these initiatives is anticipated to be accomplished in late 2024 or early 2025, based on officers.
