I-15 Interchange Projects In
Victorville & Apple
San Bernardino, Wednesday August 24,
The California Department of
Transportation (Caltrans) is urging motorists to slow down through
the interchange projects on Interstate 15 (I-15) through Victorville and Apple
The $71 million project began earlier
this year to widen the Mojave River Bridge and rebuild the interchanges at Stoddard
Wells, D Street, and E Street and is being built by Ames Construction.
Interstate 15 through the construction zone has reduced lanes
with smaller widths, lane configuration changes, night work and daily
construction activity. Caltrans has placed signage and traffic measures to try and
slow traffic through the work zone not only to protect the workers, but also to
protect motorists and their passengers.
BE Work Zone ALERT
Caltrans continues to partner with
the California Highway Patrol (CHP) who are providing enhanced
enforcement during work hours. However,
motorists continue to travel at top speeds in excess of the 70 mile per hour
posted speed limit through the construction zone.
Motorists are being
advised that the CHP is now issuing citations for speed violations and other
traffic offenses through the project limits.
As a reminder, citations can lead to double fines if received within the
The project will continue
to require lane and ramp closures including some full directional closures and
is expected to be completed by the end of 2018, weather permitting.
Caltrans will continue to keep the
public informed with the schedule of work and closures as the project
progresses. To stay updated on the I-15
