State Route 125 will be closed for several hours starting Thursday night as crews continue to repair bridges across the county.
From 11:30 p.m. Thursday to 4:30 a.m. Friday, southbound SR-125 lanes will be closed from Interstate 8 to Lemon Avenue in the La Mesa area, according to Caltrans.
The eastbound and westbound I-8 connectors to southbound SR-125 will also be closed.
The 3,500-foot span of roadway will close for an ongoing project to repair 24 bridges in San Diego County.
Caltrans announced the following detours:
- Detour for southbound SR-125: Motorists on southbound SR-125 will be directed to westbound I-8, to Jackson Drive south, to Lemon Avenue east to southbound SR-125.
- Detour for eastbound and westbound I-8 to southbound SR-125: Motorists on I-8 will be directed to Jackson Drive south, to Lemon Avenue east to southbound SR-125.
Caltrans reminded drivers to slow down when approaching crews and their vehicles – and to even move over a lane if possible.
The bridge repair project began in June and is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.
