Nightly lane closures will begin next week along Interstate 15 in Murrieta and Temecula as a $6.6 million resurfacing project gets underway.

According to Caltrans, crews will be working Monday to Thursday from the San Diego County line to the Interstate 215 interchange, often leaving only a single lane available for motorists traveling northbound and southbound.

The work will generally occur between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., officials said.

Calmex Engineering of Bloomington is handling the work, which will entail not only paving large sections of the freeway, but also constructing new curb ramps, sidewalks and gutters, according to Caltrans.

Crews will initially focus on the area around the Rainbow Truck Inspection Station, just north of the Riverside County line, gradually moving north toward the Interstate 15/Interstate 215 separation, officials said.

The project is expected to conclude sometime in November, weather permitting.
