CAJON PASS:(VVNG.com)- According to Caltrans a full freeway closure that will last just over one hour is planned on the 15 freeway southbound at Kenwood Avenue from 11:59 p.m.on Friday, August 22nd until 1:01 a.m. on Saturday, August 23rd as part of the Devore Interchange Project.
Those who must take this route during the 1 hour and 2 minute closure can exit the 15 freeway South at the Kenwood exit and get back onto the Kenwood Avenue on-ramp heading south. This closure will be in addition to the already planned 65-hour lane, 5 weekend “Cajon Crawl” Project lane closures, which will only affect Northbound lanes.
The Cajon Crawl Project, which began on August 8th, has caused more minimal delays than predicted for the first two weeks. There will be three additional weekend closures, excluding labor day weekend, these closures will reduce the four lane highway to only two lanes for a 1 mile strip moving up a mile each weekend. The work is planned to conclude at 3:00 p.m. at on September 15th.
Since the Cajon Crawl Project will only affect northbound lanes any southbound lane closures will be due to other projects, including the Devore Interchange Project or the Ranchero Bridge Project.
Those who would like to avoid the possible traffic that the Cajon Crawl Project may cause can use alternate routes. Alternate routes include from the 15 freeway taking the 15 freeway north to CA-138 to CA-18/Palmdale Road which will take you to the Victorville area. From the Los Angeles area, take the 5 freeway to Highway 14 , take Highway 138 east, stay straight to take Highway 18/Pearblossom Hwy (Palmdale Road) into the Victorville area. The Highway 18 (Palmdale Road), you can then reach the 15 freeway by taking Palmdale Road.
