SAN DIEGO — Caltrans announced late Monday afternoon that a scheduled project that would have shut down two northbound and two southbound lanes Monday night on state Route 15 in the Mid-City area has been canceled.

The closures, planned to allow crews to move temporary concrete barriers, had been slated to run from 7 Monday evening to 5 a.m. Tuesday.

The state transportation agency did not immediately disclose the reason for the cancellation or any revised schedule for the road work, which will allow for installation of bus lanes and freeway-level transit stations along the freeway.

The $65 million project is scheduled to be completed next year.
