One of the truck bypass lanes from the southbound 215 Freeway to the eastbound 60 Freeway near the Riverside-Moreno Valley border was expected to be closed through at least 2:15 p.m. Monday, July 17, the California Highway Patrol and Caltrans said.

A truck driver reported to the CHP about 12:45 p.m. that when he braked, his cargo struck his air brakes and disabled his truck.

A SigAlert was declared for the right lane, the CHP website said. At 1:10 p.m., the CHP said the lane would be blocked for at least one hour. Caltrans said in a Twitter message that it was unclear how long the lane would be blocked.
