15 Freeway, Victor Valley – Intermittent closures for emergency guardrail repairs throughout the construction zone could reduce lanes down to one lane during certain hours.
On Saturday, December 10 at 8:00 p.m., the northbound and southbound #1 lane was closed from Oak Hill Road in Hesperia to just south of Bear Valley Road and is expected to remain closed until Monday, December 12 at 5:00 a.m.
Commuters are being warned to prepare if there is rain or snowfall, that the closure may be extended past Monday, Caltrans confirmed in a press release.
Due to rain, the northbound 15 freeway bypass lane was shut down at about 9:30 pm, on Saturday and the closure is expected to remain in place for 2-3 days.
Additionally, on Monday, December 12, through Sunday, December 18, the northbound I-15 Freeway from Oak Hill Road to Bear Valley Road will experience alternating lane closures, possibly bringing lanes down to one lane from 9:00 p.m. to 9:00 a.m., and on the Southbound 15 from Bear Valley Road to Oak Hill Road from 6:00 p.m. – 6:00 a.m.
All on and off-ramps are subject to intermittent closures for crew safety and related roadwork.
Commuters should make themselves familiar with new lane configurations coming up for lane #1 and lane #2.
The following traffic reconfiguration will be in place: 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.
Please note: Big rigs, trucks and trailers, or large loads SHOULD NOT use lane #1.
Also, its possible that connector closures could occur at the I-15 to US 395 area during striping operations.
To avoid delays, commuters can use State Route 138 to State Route 18 in Phelan, back to the 1-15 fas a detour.
Please use caution and remember to reduce your speed when approaching and driving through the construction zones.
The project is expected to be complete in early 2025.To follow updates to this article and more, join our newsgroup on Facebook with over 165,000 members. Like our Facebook page, and Follow us on Instagram and Twitter.
