I-15 Express Lanes Thursday Move Cancelled
SAN DIEGO –– Caltrans announced that the Interstate 15 (I-15) Express Lanes reconfiguration planned for Thursday has been cancelled, due to technical difficulties.
Caltrans crews have been working to repair the mechanism that powers the automated delineation markers. These markers rise out of the pavement to direct motorists on and off of the 16-mile long Express lanes.
The two-lane reconfiguration will remain in place until repairs are completed.
The I-15 Express Lanes accommodate carpools, vanpools and buses free of charge. Single drivers with a FasTrak® account may also use the lanes. Electronic message signs will alert motorists when the barrier transfer machine is in operation.
