SAN DIEGO – The southbound Interstate 15 (I-15) Express Lanes from Camino Del Norte to Mercy Road will be closed this weekend beginning Friday, June 14 at 8 p.m. through Monday, June 16 at 5 a.m., according to Caltrans. The on-ramps for the southbound Express Lanes at the Sabre Springs Direct Access Ramp and State Route 56/Ted Williams Parkway will also be closed.

During this time, crews will make drainage improvements along the Express Lanes. Signs will be posted on the freeway to direct Express Lanes motorists where to exit and re-enter the lanes.

in January 2012. Since its completion, commute times along this corridor have reduced from approximately 40 minutes to 30 minutes in the past decade.

In summer 2014, a rapid transit system will begin running on the I-15 Express Lanes. This new high-frequency express bus service, the first of its kind in San Diego, will be more reliable and convenient, similar to the services of a light rail system. The I-15 Express Lanes is open to carpoolers, vanpoolers, public transit vehicles, motorcyclists, and those driving permitted clean air vehicles for free. Solo drivers can use the Express Lanes by paying a toll via a FasTrak® account.
