The proposed project would improve the movement of vehicles traveling westbound on SR-56 to northbound I-5, and vehicles traveling southbound on I-5 to eastbound SR-56. The proposed I-5/SR-56 interchange project would begin south of the western segment of Carmel Valley Road along I-5 at post mile (PM) 32.7 and continue to PM 34.8 north of Del Mar Heights Road. Along SR-56, the proposed project would begin at PM 0.0 at El Camino Real and continue to PM 2.5 east of Carmel Country Road. The length of the proposed project is approximately 2.1 miles on I-5 and approximately 2.5 miles on SR-56, for a collective length of 4.6 miles. The project includes five alternatives including: Alternative 1 (No Build), Alternative 2 (Direct Connector), Alternative 3 (Auxiliary Lane), Alternative 4 (Hybrid), and Alternative 5 (Hybrid with Flyover).
