The California Highway Patrol reports that two lanes of westbound Interstate 8 in El Cajon are closed.

The closure was reported shortly after 6:00 A.M. Friday when a hole was discovered in one of the traffic lanes of the busy freeway near Johnson Avenue in El Cajon. According to the CHP , large chunks of concrete were found and the steel rebar was visible in the hole. Traffic is being diverted from two westbound lanes until repairs can be made and that is expected to be early this afternoon.
