Southbound Interstate 15 Closed Sunday Night Between Mercy Road and Mira Mesa Boulevard

SAN DIEGO – Southbound Interstate 15 (I-15) will be closed and a detour will be in place Sunday night between Mercy Road and Mira Mesa Boulevard, according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans). The closure will occur, weather permitting, from 11 p.m. to 4:30 a.m.

This closure will allow our crews to install a large overhead sign without disrupting the daily commute. Motorists traveling south on I-15 will be detoured west on Mercy Road to south on Black Mountain Road to east on Mira Mesa Boulevard to the on-ramp back to southbound I-15. Detour signs will be posted to direct motorists.

Caltrans will make every effort to minimize disruptions to the public during this closure. For more information on the I-15 Express Lanes project, call the project information hotline at (866) 890-1397 or log-on to
