Construction on the 215 Freeway, which prompted a series of overnight closures this month, has finished a day ahead of schedule.
A full closure scheduled from Saturday night to Sunday morning will not be necessary, according to a news release from the California Department of Transportation.
The "Spring Sting" closures that went into effect early April and included both sides of the 215 Freeway, between Barton Road and Iowa Avenue in the community of Grand Terrace.
The closure affected a 7.5-mile stretch that serves as a bustling thoroughfare for motorists and business owners.
