Night Work Scheduled for I-8

SAN DIEGO – Night work is scheduled this week starting Tuesday through Thursday on Interstate 8 between Second and East Main streets.  Crews from the California Department of Transportation will close the number two lane in each direction between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. nightly.  In addition crews may periodically need to close some of the on- and off-ramps at Second and East Main streets.  

The work is part of the Reduce the Wait on I-8 Project that will extend the eastbound left lane and shoulder from 2nd Street to Greenfield Drive.  In addition the bridges at East Main Street and Broadway will be widened and noise abatement such as walls and berms are also planned.

The $9.5 million project is scheduled to be complete in late 2012.
