Construction crews had been scheduled to move concrete safety barriers in preparation for rapid transit.

A significant closure planned Monday evening for State Route 15 has been canceled, Caltrans announced later in the day.

Construction crews were scheduled to move concrete safety barriers in preparation for the SR-15 Mid-City Centerline Rapid Transit Stations Project.

As of 4:30 p.m. Monday, Caltrans announced that all closures were canceled and will be rescheduled for another day.

The announcement came after several changes throughout the day.

Caltrans has announced that the following closures would be in place.

  • Ramps from eastbound and westbound I-8 to southbound SR-15 will be closed.
  • Ramps from northbound SR-15 to eastbound and westbound I-8 will be closed.

But around 3:30 p.m. Monday, Caltrans told NBC 7 that the SR-15 will remain open while ramp closures from Interstate 8 to Interstate 805 will be in place from 8 p.m. Monday until 12 a.m. Tuesday.

An hour later, Caltrans said it would cancel the closures altogether for Monday.

But Friars Road near Oualcomm Stadium will still experience some disruptions due to "pavement rehabilitation", a spokesperson told NBC 7.

The $65 million SR-15 Mid-City Centerline Rapid Transit Stations Project will build San Diego’s first freeway-level transit stations along SR-15 at El Cajon Boulevard and University Avenue.

The project is expected to be completed in 2017.
