Construction Advisory for Otay Lakes Road

The city of Chula Vista is performing road construction on Otay Lakes Road in front of campus. Entrances to campus via Gotham Street and Elmhurst Street will be severely impacted by the road construction. Left turns onto campus from Otay Lakes Road will be down to one turning lane. Otay Lakes Road will sometimes also be down to one lane of through-traffic. Please expect delays and please plan your commute accordingly. East H Street entrance is not impacted, and may be a better option at this time.

Welcome back and have a great semester!
