SAN DIEGO — Caltrans will close all westbound lanes of Interstate 8 from state Route 163 through Mission Valley from 11 p.m. Tuesday to 5 a.m. Wednesday for its Interchange Improvement Project.
“We are very close to completion of this project,” said Caltrans Resident Engineer Brandon Farmer. “We originally planned to close the freeway three nights this week to install the new overhead sign structures but had to postpone the installation due to rain.”
Drivers were advised to take one of the following detours:
- Take northbound SR-163 to northbound I-805 connector ramp to wesbtound SR-52, then to the southbound I-5 to the eastbound 1-8 connector ramp
- Use the southbound SR-163 connector ramp to the northbound I-5 off-ramp, continue north on I-5 to the eastbound I-8 connector ramp
