Dogwood Road Exits Closed Friday and Saturday Nights

EL CENTRO, Calif.——Maintenance crews will close the Interstate 8 (I-8) on- and off- ramps at Dogwood Road in El Centro in Imperial County, Friday and Saturday nights from 10 to 8 in the morning for pavement work.
During the closures, detour signs will be posted directing motorists to use the I-8/State Route 86 (SR-86)/South Fourth Street on- and off- ramps located just west of Dogwood Road.
Motorists traveling from either direction of I-8 to the Imperial Valley Mall may exit at southbound SR-86/South Fourth Street, then travel east on East Danenberg Drive to the mall. Motorists may use reverse directions to access I-8 from the mall.

Flaggers will be positioned at Dogwood Road to direct drivers around the closures.
Caltrans reminds drivers to “Be Work Zone Alert” and to slow when nearing highway work zones.
Californians can expect more roadway improvement projects like this made possible by the recently passed Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017, Senate Bill 1 (SB1). Caltrans is committed to conducting its business in a fully transparent manner and detailing its progress to the public. For complete details on SB1, visit
