City Council Hears I-5 Widening Project Details

Caltrans presented to the Carlsbad City Council an overview of the I-5 widening project, which is intended to improve road conditions along the 27 miles that connect the cities of Carlsbad, Encinitas, Oceanside, Solana Beach and San Diego. They discussed a few options and compared cost estimates.

Part of the expansion project involves the section of road over the Batiquitos Lagoon. The expansion project could be beneficial because it may include funding to improve trails next to the highway and build a new water treatment facility that collects water before it reaches the lagoon.
