SAN DIEGO — Caltrans construction crews will close the eastbound La Mesa Boulevard and eastbound Severin Drive on-ramps tonight from 7 p.m. to 8 a.m. Two right lanes on interstate 8 (I-8) will be closed for asphalt repair from 8 p.m. to 11 a.m.

Additionally, two right lanes on the northbound state route 125 (SR-125) connector to eastbound interstate 8 (I-8) will be closed from 7 p.m. to 8 a.m. There will be no full freeway closure.

Residents in the area may hear trucks and beeping from construction vehicles. The Occupational Safety & Health Administration established standards for using backup alarms on construction vehicles and material handling equipment because of the widespread danger posed to people on the site.
