EL CENTRO – Caltrans advises motorists in Imperial County that a 10-mile portion of eastbound Interstate 8 (I-8) east of State Route 111 will be shifted to the westbound side beginning Friday at 9:00 a.m. through June. The Shift will result in one lane of I-8 in each direction from a half mile West of the Anderhold Roa Overcrossing to a half mile east of the East Highline Canal Bridge.
The Eastbound I-8 on and off ramps to Vanderlinden Road and the connector ramp to State Route 115 (SR-115) will also be closed.
Signs will be placed detouring eastbound I-8 motorists to exit at Bonds Corner Road South to Hunt Road East, to Vanderlinden Road. Travel North on Vanderlinden Road to access SR-115.
The eastbound I-8 on and off ramps to Orchard Road/State Route 7 (SR-7) are also closed through June.
Motorists on eastbound I-8 are detoured to exit at Bonds Corner Road to the westbound I-8 on ramp, to northbound Orchard Road or southbound SR-7.
The traffic shift and ramp closures are needed to accommodate removing old pavement on the eastbound side as part of the I-8 Update Continuous Reinforced Concrete Pavement Project, Segment 1.
