MenifeeMerge_Logo-web-final

Traffic Merge
Construction crews will shift Newport Road traffic onto the north side of the bridge and the traffic merge will run in both directions from April through October. Demolition of the south side of the bridge will tentatively begin as early as Monday, April 4, 2016 with reconstruction of the new bridge to follow immediately after.

MenifeeMerge-NewTrafficConfig-webTo ensure safety of motorists and construction crews, the eastbound and westbound lanes will be reconfigured to allow crews to safely demolish and reconstruct the south side of the bridge on Newport Road.

Please be advised that lanes will temporarily be shifted to the north side of the bridge beginning tentatively on Monday, April 4 and continue through approximately October 2016.

Eastbound traffic on Newport Road:
Eastbound traffic will include two through lanes, one dedicated left-turn lane for the north I-215 on-ramp, and one dedicated right-turn lane for the southbound I-215 on-ramp.

Westbound traffic on Newport Road:
Westbound traffic will include two through lanes, and one dedicated right turn lane for the northbound I-215 on-ramp.

 

Lane Closures and Night Work
In order to safely demolish the bridge, construction activities will require nighttime full-freeway closures in both directions of the I-215 on Friday and Saturday nights.
