November 18, 2013 (San Diego) -- For approximately four nights, beginning Nov. 18, construction activity in southbound main lanes of Interstate 15 (I-15) between Mira Mesa Boulevard and Carroll Canyon Road will require nighttime closures of the southbound I-15 main lanes from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. These closures will allow crews to continue construction of the Mira Mesa direct access ramp for mass transit.

During the closures, the southbound Express Lanes will be open and free of charge to all motorists. Signs will be posted on the freeway in advance of the closures to direct drivers to the Express Lanes and to other detours (see map below).

Once completed, the Mira Mesa DAR along with the new Miramar College Transit Station, which is also under construction, will link to the I-15 Express Lanes via Hillery Drive. This will be the fifth DAR constructed along the I-15 Corridor and will support future Rapid Transit service beginning in the summer of 2014. Construction of the DAR and transit station is scheduled to be complete next year.
