Rotating closures planned on freeway connector ramps in Murrieta area next week

Rotating closures are planned next week on connector ramps linking Interstates 15 and 215 in Murrieta as crews install new equipment to monitor traffic flow and volume.

According to Caltrans, installations are scheduled on the southbound I-215 bridge to I-15, and the northbound I-15 connector to I-215, for five consecutive nights beginning Monday.

The ramps will not be shut down at the same time, officials said. However the closures could occur anytime between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., for unknown durations. Detours will be in effect.

The work is part of a $6.6 million rehab that began in June on the mainline of I-15 through Temecula and Murrieta, involving paving, constructing new curbs and gutters, as well as other upgrades from the I-15/state Route 79 junction to the I-15/I-215 transition.

A Caltrans spokeswoman said that next week the contractor will installing vehicle sensor nodes and other traffic control devices.

Barring major disruptions, the project is slated for completion next month.
