SAN BERNARDINO – Caltrans is advising southbound Interstate 15 (I-15) motorists that there will be a full closure at the California/Nevada State line during the early morning
hours of Wednesday, June 17. All southbound I-15 traffic will be held at Primm, Nevada from 1:00 a.m. to 4:00 a.m. for overhead sign installation.
The sign installation is part of the on-going $40 million project to build the new California Highway Patrol (CHP) Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Facility (CVEF) on southbound I-15 just south of Yates Well Road near the Nevada State Line. The new facility will allow
CHP officers to conduct inspections of commercial vehicles to identify unsafe conditions and equipment such as faulty brakes, steering, and structurally deficient trucks and trailers. The facility will also allow inspections for appropriate weight requirements for overweight vehicles and trucks as set forth in the California Vehicle Code.
There are no viable detours to avoid the closure on southbound I-15, so all traffic will be diverted off at Primm and held during the closure hours. Truckers and other travelers are advised to plan ahead and avoid the closure. If you must travel on southbound I-15 during these hours, be prepared and bring water and ensure that your vehicle is in good running condition.
There is parking and facilities available at Primm Nevada for food and restrooms. Again, the best plan is to avoid the closure and travel before 1:00 a.m. or after 4:00 a.m. on Wednesday, June 17.
