Thank you.


AUG. 16, 2018 HWY. 5 NEW ALIGNMENT (Coco's Bypass) where passable:

Mile 0.0 (KM. 167.5) A detour road goes right, log continues on the new road. Most traffic still using old road, some use new, going around a small sand berm. There are no missing bridges or hazards other than fallen rocks if using new highway route from here.

Mile 0.3 (KM. 168) The last kilometer sign noted.

Mile 0.7 End of paving southbound.

Mile 1.1 Another detour road down to the right to the older road.

Mile 1.6 On a very high bridge. Seen from older route below and to the west.

Mile 2.4 Detour road/old road crosses new. All traffic now uses the new road from here south.

Mile 3.3 Road west to La Turquesa Canyon (not driven this trip).

Mile 5.3 Detour route forks left to the old road via Coco's Corner. Most traffic still uses. Log continues on new highway route. Off-highway vehicles only because of a rough detour to the old road.

Mile 5.5 Las Arrastras Bridge. See caves and large arrastra (gold ore grinding wheel) down to the east of the highway. New road bed heads upslope, cutting through ridges. Road base never completed, many rocks to dodge and rain erosion for apparent abandonment of the project.

Mile 10.1 Leave new roadbed (which ends ahead at top of the mountain cut) on detour/access road going down 0.9 mi. to the older road, south from Coco's Corner. This is an SUV/truck/4x4 style road for 0.9 mile.

Mile 11.0 On old road, damaged construction sign and orange cones are all that mark this junction.

Mile 11.8 Construction camp, parked equipment, almost no activity.

Mile 12.4 New highway will junction about here when completed, coming over the mountain from Mile 10.1 above. This will cut approx. 1 mile from this logged distance when open.

Mile 14.0 Pavement begins.

Mile 15.5 Detour right, off the pavement to the older road for most vehicles. A deep dust detour ahead at end of paving. 4WD vehicles only.

Mile 18.5 End of pavement, large sand pile on road, only deep dust (silt) tracks from here to old (detour) road. 1 mile to Highway 1.

Mile 19.5 Highway 1/ Laguna Chapala/ Km. 200 sign for Hwy. 5 end. I will estimate the final kilometer will be reduced slightly once the highway is in.

Estimated New Highway Kilometer Figures when open to traffic, using satellite images:

KM 167.5 End of Pavement 2014-2017
KM 168.5+ End of Pavement 2018
KM 170+ High Bridge
KM 171.5+ Cross older route
KM 173+ La Turquesa Canyon access road west
KM 176+ Dirt road to Coco's Corner forks to left (southeast, 4.5 miles)
KM 176.5+ Las Arrastras de Arriola bridge gold mill ruins on east side cliff.
KM 184.5 Detour road left, down to older route (0.9 mile). Ahead unfinished in 2018
KM 192.5+ Detour road right, down off pavement in 2018.
KM 196.5 End of Pavement sand berm blocking road, 4WD dust around berm.
KM 198.5 Hwy. 1, Laguna Chapala. (KM 200 sign posted)


Compared to the older route via Coco's Corner, the new route is 3.3 miles shorter. Currently using as much newer route as possible, with the .9 mi detour down to the older route, it is 2.3 miles shorter than going by Coco's Corner. The .9 mi detour is very rough, however. No trailers or non-4WD vehicles recommended.

Thanks... these are the Km. notes from an older thread in the General Baja forum with four pages of replies on it... and a lot of photos of kilometer posts. While that is fun and all, it wasn't the subject. So, here on the Roads forum seemed to be a good place to start fresh. I added new Km. markers from the Gonzaga area I collected last July. The markers listed here are mostly from TW, myself, and PaulW. I welcome more and will edit the above list so no need to search for the additions.

Youd'aman, DK.

Thanks!


BTW...I miss you living near San Luis Rey. You were so much closer to the 5 fwy. And when I drove by, I stopped by to visit. Jana and I talked about that this morning as we drove by the 76 expressway.

That is the only KM number I have for Hwy 53. I'll get more on our trip in a couple of weeks.

The Hwy from Las Barrancas to San Juanico doesn't have a number yet as far as I know.

I hope to have all of the Baja highway kilometer markers done this year! Today, I just added a few and corrected a couple that have been changed (Gonzaga Bay area were moved by 3 kilometers, ie. the Pemex was at KM 150 and that was changed to KM 147 (as were the others in the area, except the last one where the pavement ends). The ones just north of San Felipe were also changed a couple kilometers.

The future Baja Bound Guidebook will use kilometer markers as a location point for side roads or points on the highway... making it easier to use than recording an odometer reading and adding to it. Also, odometers are not all accurate and some of us have bigger tires or lower the pressure off pavement. On dirt roads without kilometer posts, then the trip odometer is used, keeping in mind slight variances in each of our vehicle's readings.

GPS waypoints are also recorded for many sites, if the exact spot is critical, such as the mission ruins at Comondú Viejo!

David,

An addition for those interested, Km 199 south of Catavina is Herman Hills curve. I'll add a marker there one of these days.

Suggest adding K74 for the La Salina Marina to the west and the old stagecoach road shortcut to La Mision to the east

You are missing a bunch of roads that have km markers.
