A series of upgrades are slated for Interstate 15 between El Cerrito and Eastvale, and traffic could be impacted by the nighttime road work, which is expected to begin within days and run into next year, officials said Wednesday.
According to Caltrans, the $23 million I-15 Slab Replacement Project is scheduled to begin Feb. 16 and will cover a roughly 15-mile stretch, starting just south of Corona and ending in the area of the 60/15 interchange in Eastvale.
The work will focus on grinding and replacing pavement on entrance and exit ramps, as well as making improvements to shoulder space along the freeway.
No freeway closures have been announced yet in connection with the project, but traffic delays are likely in some locations. However, Caltrans noted that all of the work will occur between the hours of 8 p.m. and 7 a.m. to minimize impacts.
Crews will be working both weekdays and weekends.
Project completion is anticipated in the summer of 2022. More information is available at dot.ca.gov/caltrans-near-me/district-8.
