Connection of La Mesa Road to US 395 in Victorville awaits Caltrans approval for phase II

VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) Commuters traveling through US 395 may have recently noticed that work on the La Mesa/ US 395 project has stopped for the time being.

Victor Valley News reached out to Victorville City Spokeswoman Sue Jones for an update.

“We are awaiting Caltrans approval for the next phase of the project, which includes installation of the traffic signal poles, mast arms and equipment,” stated Jones.

The La Mesa/US 395 project calls for the addition of .3 miles of new road in order to connect La Mesa Road with US 395, the addition of turn pockets on US 395, and the installation of a new traffic signal at the intersection of La Mesa Road and US 395.

Jones said the paving on La Mesa Road is complete and that the rest of the paving could be complete in May.

“Caltrans approval is necessary for this next phase of the project because they have jurisdictional oversight of state highways including US 395,” Jones told Victor Valley News.

An estimate for when the next phase will be complete was not available.
