Interstate 15 Closures Continue at Poway Road/Rancho Peñasquitos Boulevard

SAN DIEGO – The California Department of Transportation announced today that Interstate 15 (I-15) will continue to be closed at Poway Road/Rancho Peñasquitos Boulevard on Sunday through Thursday from 11:30 p.m. to 4:30 a.m. until December 11 weather permitting.

Motorists traveling north on I-15 will exit the freeway and travel east on Poway Road  to north on Sabre Springs Parkway to west on Ted Williams Parkway onto northbound I-15. Motorists traveling south on I-15 will exit the freeway and travel west on State Route 56 to south on Black Mountain Road to east on Mercy Road onto southbound I-15. Detour signs will be posted to direct motorists.
 
These closures are necessary to reconstruct the bridge as part of the ongoing I-15 Express Lanes project. Bridge construction may cause noise but must be done at night to minimize disruptions to the weekday commute. 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.
