SAN DIEGO — Caltrans construction crews will close the La Mesa Boulevard and Severin Drive on-ramp, and El Cajon Boulevard off-ramp to eastbound Interstate 8 (I-8) Sunday through Thursday from 7 p.m. to 8 a.m. Two right lanes on eastbound I-8 from Grossmont Boulevard to Marshall Avenue in El Cajon will close from 8 p.m. to 11 a.m. for asphalt repair. There will be no full freeway closure.

Additionally, two right lanes of northbound State Route 125 (SR-125) to eastbound I-8 connector will be closed Sunday through Thursday from 7 p.m. to 8 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.
