Portion of Interstate 15 Express Lanes Closed This Weekend

SAN DIEGO – The Interstate 15 (I-15) Express Lanes will be closed this weekend from State Route 163 north to State Route 56 starting Friday at 8 p.m. and reopening for the Monday commute at 4 a.m., according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).

This closure will allow construction crews to complete demolition work on the north side of the Carroll Canyon Road bridge over I-15. The general purpose lanes will remain open during this work.

This construction is part of the south segment of the I-15 Express Lanes project. The south segment will be completed in 2012. 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.
