Northbound Interstate 15 On-ramp from Eastbound Miramar Road Temporarily Closed

SAN DIEGO – The northbound Interstate 15 (I-15) on-ramp from eastbound Miramar Road will be closed to traffic for approximately six weeks starting May 11, according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).

Two detour options will be provided to motorists traveling east on Miramar Road to northbound I-15. The primary detour will be south on Kearny Villa Road to east on Miramar Way onto northbound I-15. The alternate detour will be south on I-15 to east on Miramar Way onto northbound I-15. Detour signs will be in place to direct motorists.

This ramp closure is necessary for widening the freeway and reconstructing the northbound on-ramp as part of the I-15 Express Lanes project. Once completed in 2012, there will be seven northbound and seven southbound general purpose lanes in addition to four Express Lanes in the median of the freeway at Miramar Road.

For more information on the I-15 Express Lanes project, please call the project information hotline at (866) 890-1397 or visit www.keepsandiegomoving.com.
