Thanks Bacquito. Friends reported 1 hour waits each way on Friday. They said Free Road was also under construction Friday.

In that Section of Highway there is a Serious Geological Fault for some time back they have Ben working 24/7 pouring Concrete and Asphalt into the Ever widening crevice
Its probably time to abandon that section and move inland.

Alternative? Tecate thru GV?


It's the stretch between the mirador and toll booth, yes?

This section is constantly sliding down. Scenic but slippery.

If the free road detour from La mision is also under repair, is this a good time for a leisurely drive from Tecate to Guadalupe valley?

Google translation


A stretch of scenic road Tijuana-Ensenada over 30 inches just sank
Area faults.



It is estimated that the waiting time to cross the road from kilometer 93 is two hours.

Wow! Thanks to everyone for the links and pictures.

They were working on this last month when I was there, but it looked shaky, to say the least.

WOW! I hope no one was injured or killed when that stretch of road disappeared. Pops has a place in La Salina. I assume residents can go back and forth to La Mision?

if you're in no hurry its fun to take the old dirt road from la mision (on the north side of the valley) to el porvenir, then down the 3. miss all the traffic:light:

the tiny little town of san jose de la zorra before you come out at porvenir is worth exploring.

"Slip sliding away, the nearer your destination the more your slip sliding away........"

Serious pucker factor with that truck driver? Looks like he was right in the mix went it all went down, so to speak.

The Mexican government originally asked the US Army Corp of Engineers to consult on the original construction of the toll road. The Corps told Mexico that they would not participate and suggested they pick a different route due to geologic instability. They referenced the Portuguese Bend/Palos Verdes area as an exact match geologically speaking. Oh well. Nice jobs program for the road workers.
