Cajon Pass Project

Less Than a Week Remaining for the Cajon Pass Bypass Lanes

CAJON PASS-(VVNG.com): The southbound managed lane crossover (bypass lane), being part of the Cajon Pass Rehabilitation Project are scheduled to end as of Friday, September 25th. These lanes extend from about a mile and a half north of Highway 138 to Blue Cut.

Caltrans would like to remind commuters that commercial vehicles (trucks), vehicles pulling trailers and buses are not allowed in the crossover lanes. The crossover lanes are narrow lanes with limited emergency pull off areas, so those that think they may need to use the shoulder should remain on the main lanes where shoulders are accessible. There is NO access to the Highway 138 off ramp or the Cleghorn off ramp from the crossover lanes.

Although the crossover lanes are due to end, work on the I-15 will continue with the Cajon Pass Rehabilitation Project and the Devore Interchange Project. Caltrans officials say that the nighttime work will begin as early as 6:00 p.m. and will end by 9:00 a.m.

Caltrans would like to also remind commuters that the 60 mile per hour speed limit will be enforced and that the freeway shoulder along the project limits is for emergency vehicles access only. Non-Emergency vehicles in this area may be cited.

From Monday, September 21st through Friday, September 25th from 8:00 p.m. to 11:00 a.m. there will be lane closures northbound I-15 between Kenwood Avenue and Oak Hill Road. No detour will be necessary since other northbound lanes will remain open.  On Monday, September 21st through Friday, September 25th there will be lane closures between Oak Hill Road and Kenwood Avenue. No detour will be necessary since other northbound lanes will remain open.

There will be alternating ramp closures on Southbound Hwy 138 off and on ramps from Monday, September 21st through Friday, September 25th from 8:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. For the off-ramp, Caltrans advises drivers to take the southbound I-15 to Cleghorn Road, turn left and merge onto northbound I-15. For on-ramp closures, continue northbound I-15 and exit Oak Hill Road, turn left and merge onto southbound I-15.
