Is it worth taking to avoid town?

Where does it come back out to hwy 1 at southern end?

To my knowledge, the first phase is going to end around the north end of Reforma, Ensenada.
I doubt I'll be seeing the road travel around the city in my lifetime. Won't make much of a difference anyway. Inner-city Ensenada has developed around freight being moved in and out. That won't change.

Last time I was on it, the paved road ended at Ave Ruiz. You had to turn left onto Calle Ambar then right onto Reforma. Still had to drive through town on Reforma.

I'll give it a check in the next few days and report and new info

Here is a Google Earth image dated June 5 2015. It appears that the pavement ends at the marker upper left. A bridge appears near completion at marker BP-B. As a reference I placed a marker at the entrance to the Horsepower Ranch lower right and it is at Hwy 3 KM9.
It's about 2 miles from the end of pavement to the bridge and about 2 miles to the HPR-TO.


Here is the Bypass from Hwy 3 to Hwy 3.

Long way to go before it becomes a true bypass. Maybe they are waiting to see how much pressure Chapala to Mexicali HWY takes off of Ensenada?

Anybody who lives in or near Ensenada have any progress reports from the ground?

I have to wonder if a bypass road that takes you miles into the hills will actually save much time versus staying on the main highway and hoping you make the lights.

The bypass road is close to the Hwy 1/Hwy 3 jct in Ensenada. The bypass is a four lane and when completed will have minimum stoplights and will save a lot of time getting thru Ensenada. The road is built for truckers to use but one can assume others will use it too as the locals who live in the area do now.

TMZ, you should take a better look at that road. Maybe it was "supposed" to be a 4 lane but when you get east of the Hwy 3 jct, it is really a 2 lane. If they expect to put trucks on this to bypass Ensenada, they are in for a surprise. When/if it ever gets completed, it would be suicidal to share that road with trucks. The only exit you can use now will put you onto Ruiz. With this rain, I wouldn't be surprised if there are rockslides blocking what is already built

The drive thru Ensenada ain't bad. It seems to go pretty quick. I always need to shop when heading south, so is practical to drive thru town.
Aren't nomads all retirees and vacationers? What's your hurry?

1) I go to Baja to get away from traffic and cities.
2) I am not in a hurry when I am the land I love, with beaches and boojums!

Have to go with goat here. Always enjoyed seeing the sights, as Ensenada was growing into a real metropolis.

Still don't know how much time a bypass road will save.

If anything, a bypass road around the clutter in Valle de San Quintin would more benefit Baja travelers heading way South. Something from around Colonet, to down past the Los Pinos area.

That is congestion.

Main purpose of bypass isn't to save anyone any time. Being built to keep big rigs that are only heading south of Ensenada off the Ensenada streets

TRUCK BYPASS


The Truck Bypass was conceived about the same time the Container Ship Port at Clonet was to handle the expected increase of truck traffic hauling container freight to the U.S.
That proposed project has ben on hold about as long as the construction on the Bypass has.

On a GOOD day the drive from Punta Banda to the first toll gate is 30 minutes but on all other days it's an hour.

Exactly... and because of that, the mountains around Santo Tomás, and the farm town traffic through San Quintin, expect Hwy. 5 to become the more popular corridor to L.A. Bay and south to Cabo San Lucas once it is completed. The old dip-filled highway between San Felipe and Puertecitos will be in a big need of an upgrade to match the new style highways north and south of that 50-mile section.
