SAN DIEGO — Caltrans construction crews have announced more closures along Interstate 8, including freeway connectors in Mission Valley, beginning on Sunday, July 17 and Monday, July 18, from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Work continues on the two miles of freeway from Interstate 5 (I-5) to just east of State Route 163 (SR-163).

Crews are working on a roadway overlay treatment to expand the life of the asphalt concrete pavement. This project also includes installing rumble strips and upgrading striping. This will involve intermittent closures for approximately eight weeks. Signs will be posted ahead of the closures to alert motorists.
