The last stretch of express lanes on Interstate-15 is now open.

Caltrans officials postponed Monday morning's opening of the final stretch of the lanes because of the weather. 

The rain and humidity would not allow paint to adhere, so they waited for the weather to clear up before they put on the final touches and opened the lanes.

The express lanes stretch 20-miles between State-Route 163 and State-Route 78.
