SAN DIEGO — Construction crews will close the westbound Interstate 8 (I-8) connectors to both directions of State Route 15 tonight and Wednesday from 11:30 p.m. to 4:30 a.m. each night, according to Caltrans.

Signs will be posted ahead of the closure to alert motorists.

The work is part of a county-wide project to install self-reflective signs that use headlights from highway vehicles to illuminate the sign. The new signs will enhance nighttime visibility and will replace signs requiring light fixtures to light up the signs. Caltrans engineers estimate that the new signs will reduce electrical use by seven percent.
