I-15 at SR-76 Closed Tonight and Tuesday Night

SAN DIEGO – Northbound Interstate 15 (I-15) at State Route 76 (SR-76) will be closed tonight, from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m.  Southbound I-15 will be closed in the same area on Tuesday night from 10 p.m. until 4 a.m.   

Motorists will be directed to exit at the SR-76 off-ramps, cross SR-76, and re-enter I-15. These closures will allow crews to join the existing SR-76 bridge segment to the new bridge with a smooth, continuous deck surface and install traffic sensors on I-15.

In addition, lanes on northbound and southbound I-15 will be closed intermittently on Wednesday and Thursday nights as crews install electronic message signs as part of the I-15/SR-76 Interchange improvement project.

The I-15/SR-76 Interchange improvement project is scheduled for completion in September and is part of a larger effort to widen and upgrade SR-76 between Interstate 5 and I-15. The next and final phase of construction is scheduled to begin in the first few months of 2014 and will widen SR-76 from South Mission Road to Old Highway 395.
