In the afternoons Mira Mesa is backed up from the middle to both the 15 and the 805/5.

In the mornings traffic is coming from the 15 and the 5/805 into Mira Mesa (Sorrento Valley for the most part).

The best time to get from MM Blvd to La Jolla is either between 10-11am or 2-3pm or on the weekend.

According to what I've read (can't remember what City website), Mira Mesa Blvd. is one of the most congested roads in all of SD.

Yes, and make sure you try to stay in the middle lane until you need to get over. I've noticed both the right and left lanes get backed up- people making right turns or the left turn lane being backed, often impeding the left (forward moving) lane.

Green lights don't matter much if the entire street is backed up. Which is usually the case in the afternoons, eastbound, all the way from Camino Ruiz to the 15.

Westbound, the congested area is (geographically) smaller, but, taking the metered onramp into account, it will take you 20 to 30 minutes to travel 4 miles from Scranton Road to the 805-52 interchange. And then there's the second congestion point as you get into La Jolla off the 52.

If you live in La Jolla and work in Mira Mesa, the optimal way IMHO is to take Camino Santa Fe to La Jolla Village Dr. to La Jolla Shores Dr.

When traffic is at it's peak, it can take every bit of 45 minutes to get from I-15 to I-805 on Mira Mesa Blvd.

Best advice is to learn the backroads (black mountian, gold coast, calle cristobal, etc)
