Construction to Close Lanes on I-8 — Connectors to SR-98

SAN DIEGO – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will begin work Monday on a $15 million project to repave a 10-mile section of highway on Interstate 8 (I-8) from the San Diego-Imperial county line to State Route 98 (SR-98).   Highway lane, ramp and connector closures are scheduled daily, including weekends, between 6 in the morning and 8 in the evening through mid-July.

Work will alternate between the westbound and eastbound directions. Highway construction crews will initially close one westbound lane on I-8 and the connector from westbound SR-98 to westbound I-8.  Eastbound work will close one eastbound lane on I-8 and the connector from eastbound I-8 to eastbound SR-98.  

Detours will be provided during connector closures and shuttle service will transport bicyclists and their equipment when the shoulders are closed on I-8.

No significant traffic delays are expected during construction.
