SAN DIEGO – Northbound State Route 163 (SR-163) at A Street and 11th Avenue to just north of the Laurel Street overcrossing will be closed tonight and Wednesday from 10 p.m.-5 a.m., according to Caltrans. The connector from northbound and southbound I-5 to northbound SR-163 as well as the Park Boulevard on-ramp to northbound SR-163 will be closed during the same time period.

Motorists may travel north on 11th Avenue to the northbound I-5 on-ramp, to the eastbound I-8 connector, to access SR-163 in both directions.

Construction crews for the SR-163 Cabrillo Bridge (Laurel Street Overcrossing) Retrofit and Rehabilitation Project completed installation of metal beam guard rails on the southbound direction and are moving work to the northbound side.
