Eight Miles of I-15 Express Lanes Finishing One-Year Early

SAN DIEGO – By the end of November, weather permitting, the South Segment of the Interstate 15 (I-15) Express Lanes Project will be fully opened to the public. This eight-mile stretch of freeway from State Route 163 (SR-163) to State Route 56 (SR-56) is completing one year ahead of schedule and on budget.

Starting Thursday, Nov. 10, and continuing through November, the remaining locations to be opened are:

  • Express Lanes southbound exit just south of I-15/SR-163 split;
  • Express Lanes northbound entrance just south of I-15/SR-163 split;
  • Northbound Express Lanes exit just south of Miramar Way;
  • Southbound Express Lanes entrance just south of Miramar Road.

The entire I-15 Express Lanes Project, from SR-163 to State Route 78, will be completed in winter 2011/2012. The $1.3 billion dollar project constructed innovative Express Lanes that are open for free to carpools, vanpools, busses, motorcycles, designated low-emission vehicles and fee-paying single motorists.
