SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - As expected, Caltrans' closure of an 8-mile stretch of the Interstate 15 express lanes created a chaotic commute.

Caltrans is working on expanding the express lanes between the 56 and 163. Despite plenty of warning about the closure, many drivers told us they were caught off-guard by all the extra traffic during the morning and afternoon rush.

The lanes will re-open next Monday.
