The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) issued a commuter alert stating it would be closing lanes on the 15 freeway on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day due to a storm that is expected to hit Southern California.
From noon Saturday to 6 a.m. Sunday, officials are planning to close the No. 1 lane of the northbound and southbound 15 Freeway from Oak Hill Road to Bear Valley Road due to rain and potential flooding.
This closure comes amid work to “rehabilitate 59 miles of lane, ramps and drainage systems,” Caltrans added.
Caltrans suggested using SR-138 to SR-18 in Phelan back to I-15 as a detour.
The 15 Freeway rehabilitation is expected to be complete by 2025.
