(Victor Valley)–Caltrans and Las Vegas Paving have begun construction on the new Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Facility (CVEF) for the California Highway Patrol (CHP) at the California/Nevada Stateline. In 2015, Caltrans and Las Vegas Paving will also begin constructing the new Agriculture Inspection Station (AIS) for the Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA), which will replace the existing facility on southbound I-15 in Yermo, California.
The two facilities will serve the incoming traffic on southbound I-15 into the State of California. The project is located seven miles south of the Nevada state line on I-15 between Yates Well Road and Nipton Road. The overall project is a cooperative effort among four state agencies: The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), California Highway Patrol (CHP), California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA), and the California Department of General Services (CDGS). This facility will ensure compliance of commercial vehicles with respect to weight, height, size, etc. It will also help to preserve the integrity of California highways and significantly reduce future maintenance costs to Caltrans, as well as taxpayers. Expect intermittent closures until the beginning of March 2014 (weather permitting). See below for details on closures throughout the project limits:
