Southbound Interstate 15 Closed for Two Nights at Poway Road/Rancho Peñasquitos Boulevard

SAN DIEGO – Southbound Interstate 15 (I-15) will be closed on Wednesday night and Thursday night and a detour in place at the Poway Road/Rancho Peñasquitos Boulevard bridge, according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans). The closure will be in place each night, weather permitting, from 11:30 p.m. to 4:30 a.m.

Motorists traveling south on I-15 will be detoured west on State Route 56 (SR-56) to east on Rancho Peñasquitos Boulevard to southbound I-15. Concurrently, the eastbound and westbound SR-56 connectors to southbound I-15 will be closed. Motorists traveling on SR-56 will be detoured via Rancho Peñasquitos Boulevard onto southbound I-15. Detour signs will be in place to direct motorists.

These closures will allow our crews to continue work to reconstruct the south side of the bridge as part of the I-15 Express Lanes Project. Bridge work may be noisy but must be done at night to avoid disrupting daytime traffic. 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.
