HWY. 1, 3, 5, 19 + KILOMETER MARKERS: Share Yours!


The kilometer markers offer a convenient way to note places or side roads along the highway.

The markers re-zero every so often...

In Baja Norte: Tijuana, Ensenada, San Quintin (south), L.A. Bay Jcn. (Parador Punta Prieta), Eagle Monument/ State Border. The numbers increase as you drive south.

In Baja Sur: Santa Rosalia, Loreto, Villa Insurgentes, La Paz, Cabo San Lucas. The number decrease as you drive south.

I have several... and please add yours... I will try and re-organize them from north to south when everyone has had a chance to contribute...

There was a change to the markers south of San Quintin a few years ago that added 2-3 km. to the old ones.

I have a lot, and they are scattered through my notebooks and web pages... So give me a couple days to add to and edit the following list:

EDIT: The large list is posted here, from the end of this thread:

In the real world


They start at one end of the state/highway and go to the other without re-zeroing.........that way you can tell where you are............

But we are not in the "real world"............

So, my question is why the renumbering? Maybe I could understand if each state had their own numbering system. That would only make two systems. Inasmuch as they regularly post mileage (kilometer) signs telling you how far it is to places that lie ahead, even when in somecases it get a little ridiculous (distance to TJ outside of Mulege, for instance), I would think that since Mex 1 is "the" transpenisular highway, it would make some sense that they numbered it consecutively from top to bttom or vice versa.

Good question... Remember seperate road crews worked on the highway completion (~1968-Dec. 1, 1973)... most work was done in 1973 in a rush to complete before the president's term ended.

The most progress was done in Baja Sur heading north... Baja Sur was a federal territory then, if that mattered.

During 1972:

North to South crews started near Colonet and advanced to San Quintin by 1973.

South to north crews had built and paved the road from Insurgentes over to Loreto and north to Santa Rosalia... and were partway to San Ignacio by 1973.

In 1973:

By July, 1973 the north crew had paved past El Rosario to the El Progreso/Mision San Fernando rd. and a road bed was completed to near Agua Dulce (past San Agustin).

The south crew had paved past San Ignacio, to Guerrero Negro, Villa Jesus Maria, and in sections to Punta Prieta! Roadbed work was completed to Laguna Chapala.

The north and south bound construction crews met at San Ignacito (just south of Santa Ynez, near the site of what would become Cataviña after the highway was built).

Pavement was completed in November... the opening cermony was heald at the newly erected Eagle Monument, near Guerrero Negro on Dec. 1, 1973.

I know that most Nomads have seen the ridculous situation where over and over, there are virtually duplicate road markers along the highway. Any explanation for that? Often, they stand butting up against each other.

Great freaking idea David! This master list will benefit me in my future travels trying to find off the beaten path turn offs.

Now...maybe someone can take those marker points and add directions "from point a to point b" to any significant spots of that area....

Example: Marker 123 is Pointe Final. Whats at that end of that dirt dirt there? Hope I am making sense...it's too early for me to be thinking!

What's nice is they are every kilometer (or 6/10 of a mile), so just start looking for the turnoff as the numbers get close!
