When will the 215 freeway bridge at Mount Vernon on Washington Street in Colton be built?

Why: Roldan Terroy of Colton asked about the construction of a bridge overpass on the 215 freeway at the Mount Vernon/Washington Street exit in Colton. He said that during construction work in May, the overpass was reduced from two lanes to one lane each, allowing traffic to return to the off-ramp. Teroy asked when the project would be completed and what improvements were being made in it.

a: The work is part of the 215 Freeway Washington Street Bridge Replacement Project that will provide overpass improvements including a higher vertical clearance (in other words, it will be a longer bridge), a longer bridge, bike lanes, and better sidewalks. Caltrans expects the project to be completed by the summer of 2024. Here’s what’s being done:

• The new vertical clearance will be 16 feet, 6 inches; The current bridge clearance is 14 feet, 8 inches. Increasing the vertical clearance will reduce the likelihood that the bridge may be hit by large vehicles and trucks.

• The new bridge will be 240 feet. The current bridge is about 203 feet.

• The new bridge will include six lanes of traffic, two bike lanes, one sidewalk and two shoulders. It will also include attractive bridge lighting with architectural fencing and barrier rails.

In early May the overpass lane was reduced to night for a week so that workers could pour concrete with no other work. Drivers in this area should expect lane and bridge closures as well as delays on freeways and surrounding roads during the construction period. Look for signs indicating detours or lane reduction. Remember, the speed limit has been lowered to 55 mph in the construction zone.

Why: Kurt Meidinger of Beaumont said that when he turns the 10 freeway west, the two right lanes allow him to merge onto 215. Of these, the right-most lane has only one exit-lane and the other on the left allows him to exit. 215 continues to the south or 10 to the west. If merging to 215 south from the left exit lane, “Should I use my right blinker even though I’m not switching lanes? I’m afraid the blinker might make people in the rightmost lane think.” Will give that I am going to their street,” he asked.
