A lane of northbound Interstate 15 at Murrieta Hot Springs Road is scheduled for an overnight closure Wednesday, an official said.
The number three lane (slow lane) is slated to be closed from 9 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 20 to 5 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 21. The closure is in order for survey work to be conducted for Phase II of the French Valley Interchange project, according to city of Temecula Project Manager Avlin Odviar.
The closure was previously scheduled to occur Tuesday night but was postponed due to the rainy forecast.
On Wednesday night, the lane will be closed from approximately a half-mile south of Murrieta Hot Springs Road to a half-mile north of Murrieta Hot Springs, Odviar said; however, the exit and entrance ramps will remain open.
Another closure, this one at Winchester Road, is scheduled from 9 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 21 to 5 a.m. Friday, Feb. 22. The number one (fast) lane will be closed on northbound Interstate 15 from about 1 mile south of Winchester Road to approximately one-fourth mile north or Winchester.
Looking ahead, Odviar said the northbound Interstate 15 connector to northbound Interstate 215 will be closed at Murrieta Hot Springs Road from 10 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 27 to 3 a.m. Thursday Feb. 28—also due to survey work. Motorists will need to use a detour route by exiting Interstate 15 north at Murrieta Hot Springs Road and traveling east on Murrieta Hot Springs to re-enter Interstate 215.
