TEMECULA (CNS) – For the fourth straight week, lanes on both sides of Interstate 15 south of Temecula will be shut down from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. on four consecutive nights, beginning tonight, as crews continue a $30 million pavement replacement project on the artery, according to Caltrans.
The I-15 Pavement Rehabilitation Project got underway at the beginning of April, entailing the replacement of the No. 3 and 4 lanes on the north-and southbound sides of the freeway, between the San Diego County line and the Temecula River Bridge.
In mid-April, crews began excavating in the project zone, and this week, they will continue to remove old metal beam guardrails in the median, over a stretch of the interstate where two lanes will be taken out of service on both sides.
The work is scheduled from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. between the Rainbow Valley turnout and Highway 79, wrapping up for the week on Friday morning. One lane will be available for travel at all times, Caltrans officials said.
The agency noted that periodic work will also be conducted during daylight hours, requiring the fast lane to be shut down between today and Friday.
Security Paving Inc. is the contractor responsible for the project and is replacing concrete panels along the corridor that are gradually deteriorating, according to Caltrans.
The project is slated to run until mid-2022.
