Roadwork on Interstate 8 From Winterhaven to El Centro

SAN DIEGO – Motorists will experience intermittent lane closures on westbound and eastbound Interstate 8 (I-8) from Winterhaven to El Centro this week through Saturday, according to Caltrans.

Construction crews are replacing concrete pavement slabs from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. today through Saturday, March 23.   One lane of travel will remain open on I-8 during construction.  Detour signs will be placed to direct motorists around temporary ramp closures as needed.

Night work will take place on Wednesday, March 13 from 6 p.m. to 7 the next morning on a half mile portion of westbound I-8 just east of the State Route 186 overcrossing.

Flaggers and CHP will be on site to direct motorists to keep moving through the construction zone.  Minimum delays are anticipated.
