According to the agency, all lanes of north and southbound SR-163 between I-8 and Genesee Avenue for three to six nights.

  • 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
