Connectors from SR-163 to Westbound I-8 Closed Tuesday Night

SAN DIEGO – The connector ramps from northbound and southbound State Route 163 (SR-163) to westbound Interstate 8 (I-8) and one lane on westbound I-8 between SR-163 and Taylor Street will be closed Tuesday night beginning at 10. Caltrans expects the ramps and all freeway lanes to be reopened to traffic in time for the Wednesday morning commute.

Crews will apply the final of four directional highway shield logos to the pavement. The shield logos indicate which lanes to use for motorists continuing westbound on I-8, or to northbound Interstate 5 (I-5) or southbound I-5.

Motorists traveling southbound on SR-163 will be detoured to eastbound I-8 to Qualcomm Way north to westbound I-8. Motorists traveling northbound on SR-163 will be detoured to Hotel Circle North to westbound I-8.
