Connector Closures on Interstate 8 and State Route 163 Monday Night
SAN DIEGO – Caltrans crews will close the off-ramp from westbound Interstate 8 (I-8) to Fairmount Avenue, Monday night from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Motorists will be detoured to Waring Road to access Fairmount Avenue.
During the same time frame the State Route 163 (SR-163) connector to westbound I-8 and the Friars Road off-ramp will also be closed. Motorists will be detoured to Genesee Avenue and to southbound SR-163 to westbound I-8.
These closures will allow crews to upgrade the guardrail at these ramps and connector.
Motorists are reminded to slow down and safely move over a lane when Caltrans or other emergency vehicles are displaying flashing amber lights. It’s the law!
