I-15 Express Lanes Closed at Mira Mesa Boulevard to Remove Falsework

SAN DIEGO – Starting Thursday night to Monday morning, Caltrans crews will be removing the temporary construction falsework from under the Interstate 15 (I-15) northbound bridge at Mira Mesa Boulevard.   The work will require a full closure of the Express Lanes and at times a few of the northbound main lanes. 

On Thursday from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Friday, the Express Lanes will be closed in both directions between Mira Mesa Boulevard and Carroll Canyon Road.  It also includes the closure of the number 1-3 northbound lanes, numbered from left to right, between Miramar Road and Mira Mesa Boulevard.

The Express Lanes will be closed again over the weekend on Friday from 8 p.m. to Monday at 5 a.m.  At the same time Friday night to Saturday morning, the number 1-3 northbound lanes between Miramar Road and Mira Mesa Boulevard will be closed.  The lanes will gradually open starting at 4 a.m. with all lanes open by 11 a.m.

The Mira Mesa Direct Access Ramp along with the new Miramar College Transit Station, which is also under construction, will link to the I-15 Express Lanes via Hillery Drive.  This will be the fifth DAR constructed along the I-15 Corridor and will support future Rapid Transit service beginning in summer of 2014.  Construction of the DAR and transit station is scheduled to be completed later this year.
