Southbound Interstate 15 Closed Tonight Between Mercy Road and Mira Mesa Boulevard

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