SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - There's a traffic alert for drivers who use the express lanes on Interstate 15.
Caltrans will be temporarily closing a portion of the HOV lanes for more than a week later this month.
Beginning on June 18, the express lanes on I-15 between state routes 163 and 56 will be shut down for nine days as Caltrans crews complete work on a project that has been going on now for several years.
"And we have to shut them down for a period of nine days in order to put the final touches on the new express lanes that will be opening after the nine-day closure," Caltrans Interstate 15 corridor director Gustavo Dal said.
Caltrans says the express lanes' closure will likely lead to congestion and long delays for drivers.
