Portion of Interstate 15 Express Lanes Closed this Weekend

SAN DIEGO – The Interstate 15 (I-15) Express Lanes will be closed from State Route 56 south to State Route 163 starting Friday at 8 p.m. and reopening on Monday at 4 a.m., according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).

This weekend closure will allow construction crews to continue demolition work on the south side of the Poway Road/Rancho Peñasquitos Boulevard bridge without impacting the weekday commute.

This construction is part of the south segment of the I-15 Express Lanes project. The south segment will be completed in 2012. For more information on the I-15 Express Lanes project, call the project information hotline at (866) 890-1397 or log-on to www.KeepSanDiegoMoving.com.
