p.m. These closures will occur Monday through Friday.

LANE INFORMATION: At least one lane will be open at all times.
Please be aware of construction crews and SLOW FOR THE CONE ZONE. This “Alert” will
continue to be updated with new information throughout the project.
As a frequent commuter on the 15, I would like to know why this repair couldn’t be done during the night time as many previous repairs have been done. This construction caused me to miss a very important medical appointment Jan. 13, due to the construction causing a 3 hour delay. No detours are provided/posted. If night time construction is impossible, I don’t understand why at least two lanes can’t remain open. Although this is posted to be an emergency repair, I feel there was absolutely no planning for this project with any consideration for the 100’s of people that commute on the only corridor connecting the High Desert with San Bernardino and connecting cities. And how emergent can it be to disrupt daytime traffic flow for 6 hours a day over a several day period? I’m sure there are numerous taxpayers that are being prevented from getting to their jobs, which provides tax money to fund road repairs, now resulting in a decrease of those tax funds coming in. Seems a little self defeating on whoever makes the decision to do daytime road repairs leaving only one lane open.
