(Victor Valley)– The I-15 northbound to SR-210 east/west connectors along with the I-15 northbound Baseline Avenue on-ramp will be closed for the weekend on the 9-mile pavement rehabilitation project on Interstate 15 (I-15) from the 7th Street undercrossing in the City of Rancho Cucamonga to the Sierra Avenue undercrossing (UC) in the City of Fontana. The project was awarded to Griffith/Coffman Joint Venture, Inc. for approximately $83 million on February 16, 2012. The work includes rehabilitation of the No. 3 and No. 4 lanes in both directions, rehabilitation of the outside shoulder and widening of the inside shoulder. The work is expected to improve ride quality, extend pavement life, improve facility operation, and safety.
The weekend closures will begin Friday night (late) and continue until Monday morning (early). Please expect delays while traveling through the construction zone. The bypass lane has moved to the southbound side. The bypass lane begins near Summit Ave and continues to just past 4th Street. The bypass lane is continuous with no exits once motorists enter. The next exit after the bypass lane ends will be the I-10 connectors. Motorists are encouraged to use the bypass lane during weekend closures.

The project is expected to last through mid-2014. Please follow all advisory signs. The 55 MPH speed limit implemented throughout the limits of the project will be strictly enforced. Caltrans asks that motorists SLOW FOR THE CONE ZONE. For more information on this and other Caltrans projects, visit our web site at www.caltrans8.info or www.quickmap.dot.ca.gov.
