Tij-Ens toll road collapse - UPDATE
« on: December 28, 2013, 01:46:29 PM »
If you are used to using the toll road to Ensenada, you need to read this.  The road is collapsed at about km93, where they've been fighting Mother Nature for a year or more.

You can take the free road to get around it, or come down via Hwy 3 to Tecate.

Thanks for the heads-up. It looks as if Rte 3 by way of Tecate will be the answer tomorrow.

I'm reminded that the free road, at San Miguel has the on/off ramps seriously torn up - so officials will need to open that portion - in spite of the repair status.

Yeah - in short- Hwy 3 is your new best friend.

ENSENADA — The final stretch of the coastal highway that leads to Ensenada looks out on some of the most picturesque scenery in Baja California — brush-covered hills giving way to sand-colored bluffs that drop sharply to Salsipuedes Bay on the Pacific Ocean.

But since the dramatic collapse of a 330-yard section late last year, drivers have been barred from the southernmost stretch of the Tijuana-Ensenada toll road.

Mexican federal authorities say they expect to reopen the road this fall — as early as September. Backed by extensive studies and elaborate plans, a government contractor is in the process of restoring the collapsed section to its original path nearly 300 feet above the coastline.
