Northbound Interstate 15 Closed Wednesday Night at Rancho Peñasquitos Boulevard/Poway Road

SAN DIEGO – Northbound Interstate 15 (I-15) will be closed on Wednesday night and a detour will be in place at the Poway Road/Rancho Peñasquitos Boulevard bridge, according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans). The closure will be in place from 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday to 4:30 a.m. on Thursday.

Motorists traveling north on I-15 during this time will be detoured east on Poway Road to north on Sabre Springs Parkway to west on Ted Williams Parkway onto northbound I-15. Detour signs will be in place to direct motorists.

This closure will allow construction crews to continue work on the south side of the bridge as part of the I-15 Express Lanes Project. Bridge work may be noisy but must be done at night to avoid disrupting weekday traffic.
