Southbound State Route 163 at Interstate 15 Closed Tonight

SAN DIEGO Southbound State Route 163 (SR-163) at Interstate 15 (I-15) will be closed from the I-15/SR-163 split to Kearny Villa Road tonight at 10 and will reopen at approximately 5 in the morning, according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).

This closure is needed to allow I-15 Express Lanes construction crews to continue concrete paving.  Detour signs will be in place to direct motorists around the closure.  Motorists traveling on southbound SR-163 at I-15 will be detoured via westbound State Route 52 to southbound State Route 805 onto southbound SR-163.

The south segment of the I-15 Express Lanes will be completed at the end of 2012.  Caltrans will make every effort to minimize disruption to the public during this closure.  For updated road closure information, call the project information hotline at (866) 890-1397 or log-on to www.KeepSanDiegoMoving.com.
