Southbound Interstate 15 Closed at Carroll Canyon Road for Three Nights

SAN DIEGO – Interstate 15 (I-15) will be closed in the southbound direction and a detour will be in place for three nights beginning Sunday at the Carroll Canyon Road bridge, according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans). The closure will first occur on Sunday night from 12 a.m. to 5 a.m. and again on Monday and Tuesday nights from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m., weather permitting.

Motorists traveling south on I-15 will be detoured to the Carroll Canyon Road off-ramp, across the intersection and to the on-ramp back to southbound I-15. Detour signs will be posted to direct motorists.

The Carroll Canyon Road bridge over I-15 will also be closed during this work. Motorists traveling east on Carroll Canyon Road will be detoured to north on Black Mountain Road to east on Mira Mesa Boulevard to south on Scripps Ranch Boulevard onto Carroll Canyon Road. Motorists traveling west on Carroll Canyon Road will be detoured to north on Scripps Ranch Boulevard to west on Mira Mesa Boulevard to south on Black Mountain Road onto Carroll Canyon Road. Detour signs will be in place to direct motorists.

These closures will allow our crews to remove temporary support beams that were needed during reconstruction of the north side of the bridge as part of the I-15 Express Lanes Project. Bridge construction may cause noise but must be done at night to minimize disruptions to the weekday commute. 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.
