Interstate 5 in the San Diego area

Interstate 5 is the primary north-south Interstate in the San Diego area, beginning at the heavily used US/Mexico border crossing at San Ysidro (connecting to Tijuana, Mexico) and extending north through San Diego towards Los Angeles.  Between the border and CA 52 (the extent to which I mostly traveled it), I-5 is at least 8 lanes and features numerous auxiliary lanes between adjacent interchanges.

The northbound photos show a couple photos near the border and I-805, then pick up again near CA 15 and north to I-8.  The southbound photos show a few photos just south of CA 15, then again from south of CA 75 to the border.  All photos were taken by the webmaster in October, 2007.  Click on a thumbnail for a larger image.

The haziness in most of the southbound photos was the result of smoke from the Harris fire, which affected a large area in far southern San Diego County and east of I-5.
