SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Westbound Interstate 8 will undergo a six-hour overnight closure from Mission Valley to Ocean Beach this week as part of an ongoing freeway improvement project, Caltrans advised Tuesday.
The roughly five-mile stretch of freeway will be shut down between 11 p.m. Wednesday and 5 a.m. Thursday to allow construction crews to rework the I- 8/Interstate 5 interchange.
During the closure, westbound traffic on I-8 will be detoured onto northbound and southbound SR-163.
Motorists approaching Caltrans vehicles with amber flashing lights should move over one lane if safe to do so and slow down as a safety precaution, according to the state agency.
