Ranchero Road Interchange, Hesperia
Click here to see a larger map.
This project is located in the City of Hesperia, California and will connect Mariposa Road and Caliente Road to Interstate 15 with a full-service interchange. Ranchero Road will consist of three through lanes in each direction along with additional turn lanes at the freeway ramp connections and intersections with two realigned frontage roads. The project will also include utility relocations, flood control improvements, traffic signal and ramp metering, grading, drainage modifications, signing and striping, traffic handling, and replacement planting.
On May 5, 2014, construction activity resulted in a fire that ultimately consumed a significant portion of the bridge support structure, known as false work. Interstate 15 was closed in both directions while San Bernardino County Fire, assisted by Caltrans and the project contractor, fought the blaze and began to remove the fire-damaged material from the travel way.
Work has since resumed on the project and the interchange is expected to be open to traffic by March 2015.
