805 Freeway closed near Miramar Air base night of sighting 2/12/05

Hello Peter: About this report I didn't see a craft on this night, but I wanted to point out an interesting thing about this area near the Miramar Air base.

The 5 and 805 freeways split very near the base, just to the north and west of the base. The 805 runs nearest just under the flight path while the 5 runs near the coast and its 5 or 10 miles to the west of the base.

On the night of 2/12/05 the 805 freeway was closed for several miles north and south of the base. From the 805 you can see the base, from the 5 you can not see the base.

All traffic was diverted to the 5 on Sat. and Sunday nights.

I have no idea if there is a connection but my thoughts are that if they were testing something there and didn't want people from the freeway to see it then they would close it off and divert traffic.

They did this on several weekends.

What was odd about this is that there is a short section of the 805 that is being repaired near the Mira Mesa exit. There was no reason to have the detour go as far as south as it did. The next connecting freeway was 7 or 8 miles south of the 5 and 805 split. So both the north and south bound sections of the 805 were blocked off for 10 miles, 3 miles north of the base and 7 miles south of the base.

It made me think, why? Now I read what that guy wrote and wonder, maybe?

((NUFORC Note: If anyone can provide more information about this alleged traffic diversion, we would welcome an explanation of what happened there. We have no reason, at this time, to assume that the traffic diversion had anything to do with UFO's. PD))
