VICTOR VALLEY – Motorist attempting to make their way down the Cajon Pass Saturday evening are experiencing gridlock traffic.
The cause for the delays is mainly due to a portion of the southbound I-15 freeway that collapsed, swallowing a semi and a San Bernardino County Fire Engine.
At 6:40 p.m., Victor Valley News member Renee Gruwell said, “it took me an hour and a half to go from Main Street to Oak Hill Road just now on the 15-SB.”
“Beginning tonight, February 18, at 9:00 p.m. the southbound I-15 will be reduced to one lane from SR 138 to Cleghorn Rd. to allow a striping contractor to complete the necessary work to provide the four lanes of traffic,” according to Caltrans.
“One lane will remain available throughout tonight into tomorrow until the restriping is completed. Weather conditions may delay the restriping efforts and Caltrans will alert the public once the lanes reopen tomorrow.”
At 6:24 pm., Caltrans District 8 advised State Route 138 is now open from I-15 to State Route 2.
Be advised, “the back way” using Highway 138 as an alternate route to get to the I-15 freeway is closed at Summit Valley.
Traffic on the northbound is flowing and no restrictions or major accidents have been reported.
Lane Closures Planned on SB I-15 Due to Storm Damage
