Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) — Caltrans crews will close all northbound and southbound lane of State Route 163 between Interstate 8 and Genesee Avenue several nights this week starting Sunday night. The closures will continue for three to six nights, according to authorities, in order for crews to remove bridge falsework on the SR-163 Friars Road overcrossing.

The full freeway southbound closures are slated to begin at 11 p.m., while the northbound closures begin at 11:30 p.m. Caltrans said at no time will they close all lanes in both directions at the same time.

All lanes will reopen at 5 a.m.

The agency listed the planned closures as follows:

  • Sunday: All southbound lanes, the northbound far right collector lane and the right main lane (slow lane).
  • Monday: No full freeway closure. Only the northbound and southbound right main lanes.
  • Tuesday: All southbound lanes, and the northbound left lane (fast lane).
  • Wednesday: All northbound lanes, and the southbound left lane.
  • Thursday: No full freeway closures. Only the northbound right lane.
  • Friday/Saturday: No freeway work scheduled
  • Sunday, March 10: All northbound lanes.

The following detours are planned during the freeway closures:

  • All northbound SR-163 motorists will be detoured to eastbound I-8 to northbound I-805 to the merge at northbound SR-163
  • All southbound motorists will be detoured to southbound I-805 to westbound I-8 to the southbound SR-163 connector ramp

Caltrans also warned that businesses and residents in the area can expect to hear jackhammering, trucks and back-up alarms during the work.

The work is part of a $40-million project that will widen the SR-163 Friars Road overcrossing and make improvements to the SR-163 on- and off-ramps.

In addition, a southbound SR-163 auxiliary lane just north of the Friars Road off-ramp is scheduled to be constructed.
