Northbound SR-163 Ramp to Eastbound I-8 Closed Friday Night
SAN DIEGO—Caltrans construction crews will close the northbound State Route 163 (SR-163) connector ramp to eastbound Interstate 8 (I-8) from 11 p.m. Friday to 9 a.m. Saturday. The closure is needed for safety upgrades including, placing high-friction surface treatments, adding reflective signs and improving the drainage outlets.
Motorists will be detoured to continue northbound on SR-163 to the westbound Friars Road loop off-ramp, back onto the southbound SR-163 on-ramp to the eastbound I-8 connector ramp.
The ramp improvements are expected to be complete in the fall.
