Northbound SR-15 Connector Ramp to Northbound I-805 Closed Tonight

SAN DIEGO—Caltrans construction crews will close the northbound State Route 15 (SR-15) connector ramp to northbound Interstate 805 (I-805) tonight from 9 until 5 Friday morning. One of two lanes on the southbound SR-15 to southbound I-805 connector ramp will also be closed.

The closures are needed for paving as part of the SR-15 Mid-City Centerline Rapid Transit Stations Project.

Motorists on northbound SR-15 will be detoured to westbound Interstate 8, then to northbound I-805.  

Nearby residents can expect intermittent lights, noise and dust during the construction operations.  Crews will work to minimize impacts.

The $65 million project will build San Diego’s first freeway-level transit stations along SR-15 at El Cajon Boulevard and University Avenue.  New 2.5-mile transit-only lanes also will be constructed within the existing SR-15 median from just north of I-805 to just south of I-8.  The SR-15 Mid-City Centerline Rapid Transit Stations Project is expected to be completed in summer 2017.
