Portion of Interstate 15 Express Lanes Closed For Next Four Weekends

SAN DIEGO – The Interstate 15 (I-15) Express Lanes will be closed from State Route 163 north to State Route 56 for the next four consecutive weekends.  The closure will start each Friday at 7 p.m. and reopen for the Monday commute by 5 a.m., according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).

This closure will allow construction crews to continue to work on the expanded Express Lanes in the median. The general purpose lanes will remain open during this work.

This construction is part of the south segment of the I-15 Express Lanes project. 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.
