Around 5:40 p.m. Saturday evening, USBP in conjunction with CHP closed Southbound I-5 and I-805 as a precaution due to the protests occurring in Mexico in response to the gas price hike instituted this past week.  All southbound traffic to Mexico was diverted to the 905 Eastbound and the surrounding surface streets, causing traffic to snarl in the border community.  It is unclear when traffic will reopen.  Contact CHP San Diego for additional details regarding the situation.
