Caltrans will be continuing to work on the pavement rehabilitation project on I-15 North and South after Thanksgiving weekend. According to the Caltrans website, they are pausing all construction work for the upcoming holiday. The project will resume on Monday, November 28th thru Sunday, December 4th and spans from Oak Hills Road in Hesperia to just south of Bear Valley Road in Victorville. Crews will be working Northbound from 9:00 p.m. to 9:00 a.m and Southbound from 6:00 p.m. – 6:00 a.m. Expect alternating lane closures during these hours, along with intermittent on and off-ramp closures. The Northbound off-ramp for Ranchero Road in Hesperia will be closed during that time and possibly southbound as well. A possible connector closure may also be expected at the I-15 to US 395 during operations.
There will be new traffic reconfigurations in place and according to CalTrans commuter alert “Lane #1, Northbound and Southbound, shift inward toward the newly configured center median, and split from the 4 adjacent lanes, with k-rail on both sides of the lane for approximately 1 mile. Traffic, going both directions, will be able to use these newly constructed lanes temporarily until construction is complete.” Those with large loads such as big rigs, trucks and trailers, should not use lane #1 during the lane reconfigurations. In order to to avoid delays, Caltrans suggests using SR-138 to SR-18 in Phelan and then connecting back to the I-15 as a detour.
The purpose of this project is to improve the safety performance and smoother roadway along with drainage systems that will be upgraded for better water flow. This project is on going and is anticipated to be completed by Spring of 2025. For more information about the pavement rehabilitation project please visit the Caltrans District 8 website.
