Southbound Interstate 15 Closed at Mira Mesa Boulevard Tonight

SAN DIEGO – Southbound Interstate 15 (I-15) will be closed tonight at Mira Mesa Boulevard with a detour in place, according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans). The closure will occur, weather permitting, from 11:30 p.m. to 4:30 a.m.

Motorists traveling south on I-15 will be detoured west on Mira Mesa Boulevard to south on Black Mountain Road to east on Miramar Road to the on-ramp back to southbound I-15. Detour signs will be posted to direct motorists.

The on-ramp from westbound Mira Mesa Boulevard to southbound I-15 will also be closed during this work, but the on-ramp from eastbound Mira Mesa Boulevard to southbound I-15 will remain open.

These closures will allow crews to continue the installation of large overhead signs without disrupting the daily commute. Caltrans will make every effort to minimize disruptions to the public during this closure. 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.
