Road conditions from Mulege to Tijuana 4/17/17


I just returned from Mulege. I jotted down a few notes on the road conditions, for those interested. Overall, I found the road conditions to have deteriorated since New Years, which was the last time I was there.

The road was in fair condition from Mulege to Guerrero Negro. In Santa Rosalia, the usual potholes still exist, especially toward the north side of town.
North of Guerrero Negro, we encountered about 10 miles worth of large potholes, on both sides of the highway. In all my years of driving the peninsula, I don’t recall deep potholes being an issue along this stretch of highway, but there they were. Even the locals complained of lost hubcaps and busted rims in this area.
From there to Punta Prieta, there were scattered potholes.
From BoLA to just a few miles south of El Rosario the potholes became significant again, especially south of Cataviña. The road has always been rough though this part of Valle de los Cirios, but the potholes have definitely gotten deeper.
From San Quintin through Ensenada, the potholes were not really an issue, since the traffic pretty much determined our speed.
Finally, the only construction we encountered was north of Ensenada, where the northbound Hwy 1 was closed, but the southbound was converted to a 2-way street, so no delays were caused.
Drive safely all.
