I- 8 Westbound Off-Ramp At Algodones Road/State Route 186 Reopens

EL CENTRO, Calif.—The Interstate 8 (I-8) westbound off-ramp at Algodones Road/State Route 186 (SR-186) will re-open on Friday, June 30.   
The westbound I-8 on-ramp at Algodones Road/SR-186 and eastbound I-8 on-ramp at Fourth Avenue (Exit 172) will remain closed due to ongoing construction.  Signs will be in place to alert motorists to the ramp closures and alternate routes.

  • Detour Algodones Road/SR-186 to Westbound I-8: Motorists will proceed to the eastbound I-8 on-ramp, drive on eastbound I-8 and exit at Winterhaven Drive, proceed north and access westbound I-8.
  • Detour Fourth Avenue (Exit 172) to Eastbound I-8: Motorists will proceed to the westbound I-8 on-ramp, drive on westbound I-8 and exit at Winterhaven Drive, proceed south and access eastbound I-8.

The I-8 Corridor is a major pavement rehabilitation project to be built in five segments that will construct Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement (CRCP) over 48 miles on Interstate 8 in Imperial County. The work will result in a long-lasting superior roadway, capable of withstanding the heaviest traffic loads.

Caltrans reminds motorists to slow down when driving through highway work zones. Motorists are reminded to watch for highway workers and moving construction equipment in the project area.
