UPDATE (8:33 a.m.): Caltrans officials say westbound I-8 from Dunbar Lane to Lake Jennings Park Road is still closed for pavement work after "the concrete didn't harden as fast as it should. At this time there is no time table when the lanes will reopen."

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Westbound Interstate 8 from Dunbar Lane to Lake Jennings Park Road in East County will be closed Sunday for pavement work, according to Caltrans.
