Two I-8 Connector Ramps Closed Saturday Morning

SAN DIEGO – Caltrans crews will close the connector ramps from eastbound Interstate 8 (I-8) to northbound State Route 67 (SR-67) and from southbound SR-125 (SR-125) to eastbound I-8 Saturday morning between 3 and 5:30 for electrical work.

The detour for eastbound I-8 travelers is to continue eastbound and take the Mollison Avenue exit, turn left under the freeway, then take westbound I-8 to northbound SR-67.

Motorists on southbound SR-125 can access eastbound I-8 by taking westbound I-8 to   Jackson Drive south and under the freeway, then left on Grossmont Boulevard and left on La Mesa Boulevard to the onramp to eastbound I-8.
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!
