Post Date:08/30/2019 10:22 AM
NO CLOSURES LABOR DAY
There are no I-15 closures scheduled from today through Monday night, Sept. 2 in observance of the holiday weekend. Have a happy and safe Labor Day!
15 PROJECT GIRDERS ARE "ON THE GO"
Have you seen the heaviest concrete girders ever to be made in California? These 132-ton girders will be traveling at night by truck over the next several months from Perris to the Santa Ana River Bridge in Norco.
Crews will widen the massive Santa Ana River Bridge using 55 girders. The girders will make a three-hour trek with CHP escorts on southbound I-215 to westbound Murrieta Hot Springs Road, and then on northbound I-15 to Norco, a distance of about 61 miles.
The girder transport will occur intermittently on weeknights during off-peak hours, beginning at 1 a.m. Motorists can expect short traffic breaks and lane closures over the next few months until all 55 girders complete their journey to the project site.
NIGHTTIME LANE CLOSURES
Intermittent lane reductions also are scheduled on northbound and southbound 15, between Weirick Rd. and State Route 60, from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., weeknights. During lane reductions, at least one lane will remain open at all times.
Closures on northbound and southbound express lane connectors are also planned intermittently on weeknights.
The schedule is as follows:
Wednesday, Sept. 4, 9 p.m. to 4 a.m.
Northbound 15 Hidden Valley on- & off-ramp
Thursday, Sept. 5, 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.
