Caltrans plans intermittent lanes closures on Interstate 215 starting Monday as part of a freeway widening project.
On Monday through Thursday nights, one of the two lanes on northbound 215 between Murrieta Hot Springs and Scott roads will be closed from 10 p.m. until 6 a.m. the following day.
On the southbound side, lane closures will be required each night from 9 p.m. until 5 a.m. the following morning.
No detours will be required because one lane will be open in each direction.
On Friday, lane closures will be from 11 p.m. until 7 a.m. Saturday morning on the northbound side and 10 p.m. until 6 a.m. on the southbound side.
Drivers were warned that the speed limit is reduced to 55 mph during this time.
The project will add one lane to each direction to Interstate 215, creating three northbound and three southbound lanes within this six-mile
section of freeway. Construction began in spring 2011 and was expected to last about 16 months.
In eastern Los Angeles County, major overnight freeway closures were planned for all next week on the San Bernardino (10) Freeway between the San Gabriel (605) and the Long Beach (710) freeways. Sections of the 710 and the Pomona (60) Freeway will also be closed overnight at some points next week.
