Interstate 8 in the San Diego area

Interstate 5 is the primary east-west freeway in the San Diego area and the only freeway that extends east of the region.  It begins at Sunset Cliffs Blvd, west of I-5 and near SeaWorld, and extends east.  Only 4 through lanes west of I-5, it widens to 6 through lanes east of I-5, then 8 through lanes east of CA 163.  Numerous auxiliary lanes also exist between adjacent interchanges.

The eastbound photos sequence from just east of I-5 to I-15/CA 15.  The westbound photos generally sequence from west of I-15/CA 15 to the end at Nimitz Blvd, with a gap near CA 163.  All photos were taken by the webmaster in October, 2007.  Click on a thumbnail for a larger image.
