SAN DIEGO — Westbound lanes of Interstate 8 and Crestwood Road were shut down Thursday morning due to two overturned semis blocking the roadway, California Highway Patrol told FOX 5.
Officials were not allowing high profile vehicles on I-8 from Alpine to the Imperial Valley during the incident. This included pickup trucks, RVs, semi-trucks and other vehicles with large surface area sides.
High profile vehicles were being detoured off at Imperial Highway and CHP was only allowing small vehicles travel in the affected area.
The westbound lanes of I-8 have since reopened to all traffics, according to Caltrans. However, a high wind advisory remains in place.
Meanwhile, Caltrans said the northbound State Route 163 ramp to northbound Interstate 5 was closed due to a downed tree. As of Friday morning, the department has not confirmed its reopening.
There were no reported injuries in relation to these incidents.
