VICTORVILLE – In order to provide safety for the construction workers and the commuters who travel the I-15 through the Victorville and Apple Valley Caltrans has implemented a reduced speed limit through the construction zone. The $71 million project, which began earlier this year will widen the Mojave River Bridge and rebuild the interchanges at Stoddard Wells, D Street, and E Street.
Effective immediately, the speed limit through the construction zone is reduced to 60 mph, Caltrans officials said. Signage has been placed in order to alert drivers of the reduced speed limits. Caltrans and the Highway Patrol are working together to enforce this new speed limit. Along with the speed reduction through the small construction area, motorists are also advised to slow down and move over for heavy equipment and workers in the area.
Citations will be issued for those not following the newly implemented speed limits and those in the work zones will include double fines. The project, which Caltrans officials said will require lane and ramp closures is set to be completed by the end of 2018.
