Portion of Interstate 15 Express Lanes Closed Saturday

SAN DIEGO – The Interstate 15 (I-15) Express Lanes will be closed from State Route 56 south to State Route 163 starting Saturday at 6 a.m. and reopening at 9 p.m., according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).

This weekend day closure will allow construction crews to continue drainage work and temporary paving in the Express Lanes in preparation for work on the Miramar Road/Pomerado Road bridge without impacting the weekday commute. The general purpose lanes will not be impacted by this closure.

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.
