Work on pedestrian bridge to impact traffic in Hillcrest area tonight

Several ramps through Hillcrest and Mission Valley will be closed Friday night from 9 p.m. to Saturday at 7 a.m.

Authorities cautioned motorists traveling through the Hillcrest area Friday evening on state Route 163 and Interstate 8 to anticipate some out-of-direction travel as crews work on the pedestrian bridge that crosses the southbound SR-163/Sixth Avenue off-ramp and connects to Scripps Mercy Hospital.

The eastbound I-8 connector ramp to southbound SR-163, which includes the eastbound Hotel Circle south on-ramp, along with the southbound SR-163 Sixth Avenue off-ramp, will close Friday at 9 p.m. to Saturday at 7 a.m., the state Department of Transportation announced.

Eastbound I-8 motorists will be detoured to the northbound SR-163 connector ramp to the Friars Road West off-ramp and turn right to the southbound SR-163 on-ramp.

Southbound SR-163/Sixth Avenue motorists should exit at the Washington Street East off-ramp to Fourth Avenue and turn right for Scripps Mercy Hospital or left for Hillcrest, a DOT spokesperson announced.

The work schedule is subject to change due to weather, traffic incidents, or other considerations.
