SAN DIEGO — Caltrans construction crews will close the right three lanes on westbound interstate 8 (I-8) Wednesday from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. for pothole repair. There will be no full freeway closure.

Additionally, the Main Street on ramp to westbound I-8 will be closed from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m.

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