Closures along I-15 in Escondido planned for next two months
Work to widen Interstate 15 will result in closures of a freeway interchange and several on- and off-ramps in Escondido during the next two months, Caltrans announced Monday.
The closures will take place in four stages during April and May so crews can build new lanes on the outside edges of the freeway.
The first stage, beginning in early April, will involve the closure of the Ninth Avenue on-ramp to the northbound I-15 for nine days, and the off-ramp to Valley Parkway for three days.
Next, the Valley Parkway on-ramp to southbound I-15 will be closed for three days in late April and the off-ramp to Ninth Avenue will be shut down for 16 days.
The third stage in early May will include the closure of the eastbound state Route 78 connector to the southbound I-15 for three days, and the shutdown of the off-ramp to Valley Parkway for 16 days.
The final stage is for the closure of the Valley Parkway on-ramp to northbound I-15 for 16 days in the middle of May.
When the fourth stage is finished, traffic lanes will be shifted toward the newly paved lanes. Crews will then begin building express lanes along the center median.
