(Victor Valley)– The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has a $1.7 million emergency project to make repairs to the deteriorated bridge deck on the Route 395 overcrossing on Interstate (I-15) in Hesperia. The Route 395 connector from northbound I-15 began to deteriorate late Friday, December 13, resulting in the full closure of the connector. The Route 395 connector from northbound I-15 remains closed until repairs are completed.
The contractor will require some lane and full closures of southbound I-15 this to expedite repairs to demolish the bridge deck. The approved closures are as follows:
Tuesday, December 17: Close two of THREE lanes on southbound I-15 from 9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. Wednesday, December 18.
Wednesday, December 18: Close two of THREE lanes on southbound I-15 from 9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. Thursday, December 19.
Thursday, December 19: FULL CLOSURE of southbound I-15 from 10:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m. Friday, December 20.
Friday, December 20: Close two of THREE lanes of southbound I-15 from 9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. Saturday, December 21.
The detour for the southbound I-15 full closure is Joshua Street off ramp to Route 395 back to I-15 north and southbound.
Motorists are advised to plan to avoid the closures.
