Northbound State Route 125 Alternate Traffic Route Will Be In Effect For FasTrak Users Through September
An alternate traffic route on northbound SR 125 Toll Road will be in effect for FasTrak users through September, as dedicated FasTrak only lanes will be temporarily closed adjacent to the toll booths north of Otay Mesa Road.
All northbound traffic will be routed through the toll booth lanes to accommodate the installation and testing of new overhead tolling equipment in the dedicated FasTrak traffic lanes.
The alternate traffic route is expected to begin at 8 a.m. Tuesday, September 6, and extend throughout the month of September.*
All three toll booth lanes will be available for FasTrak customers during this time, with one lane dedicated exclusively for FasTrak through traffic and two lanes available for cash/credit toll road customers.
The installation of the new tolling equipment is part of a broader effort to make technology enhancements along the SR 125 Toll Road and I-15 Express Lanes. The alternate traffic route is the result of several lane closures 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 completed in 2021.
Alternative route signage will be in place to guide FasTrak customers through toll booth lanes. If work progresses ahead of schedule, the FasTrak only lanes will reopen early.
