Overnight Freeway Closures For Interstate 15

Posted: Updated:

Overnight freeway closures are in store for Interstate 15 between Riverside and San Diego tonight and for the next two nights.

Caltrans contractors will be tearing down the overpass at the Poway Road/Rancho Penasquitos Boulevard interchange, south of Escondido.

Both directions of the 15 will be closed beginning at 11:30 p.m. tonight, as well as Wednesday and Thursday nights. The freeway will reopen at 4:30 a.m. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Detours will be posted, but heavy traffic can be expected, the state agency warned. The detour will use both Route 56 and Black Mountain Road, west of Interstate 15.

The project is part of the effort to widen the express lanes on the freeway.
