I-15 Express Lanes Subject to Weeknight Closures near Mira Mesa

SAN DIEGO – The Interstate 15 (I-15) Express Lanes between Mira Mesa Boulevard and Carroll Canyon Road may close intermittently on weeknights from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. during the next two months for continued construction of the Mira Mesa Direct Access Ramp (DAR), according to Caltrans.

Signs will be posted on the freeway in advance of each closure to notify Express Lanes motorists where to exit and re-enter the lanes.

The Mira Mesa DAR, along with the new Miramar College Transit Station, which is also under construction, will link to the I-15 Express Lanes via Hillery Drive.  This will be the fifth DAR constructed along the I-15 Corridor and will support future Rapid Transit service beginning in summer of 2014.

For more information on the I-15 Express Lanes project call (619) 688-6670 or log on to  Follow @SDCaltrans on Twitter for timely information about state highways in San Diego and Imperial counties. Motorists are reminded to slow down and safely move over a lane when Caltrans or other emergency vehicles are displaying flashing amber lights. It’s the law!
