Scenic tollroad connecting Tijuana, Ensenada collapses

See also

A section of the Tijuana-Ensenada toll road has collapsed reported the Union Tribune San Diego on December 28, 2013.

Heavy rain after a 4.6-magnitude earthquake caused a 300-yard section of the scenic Tijuana-Ensenada toll road to sink up to 300 feet. The collapsed section is only 10 miles north of Ensenada and 56 miles south of Tijuana.

No injuries or damage to vehicles have been reported.

The Mexican state government has not attributed the road collapse to the earthquake on December 19, instead stating the highway collapse is a result of “natural causes.”

The Tijuana-Ensenada toll road will be closed from the La Mision toll to the San Miguel toll, requiring travelers to use the smaller old road. The old road adds an additional 30 miles to their travel, but doesn’t require a toll.

Travelers have been advised to use Federal Road 3 to Ensenada if they are traveling from Tecate. Travelers departing from Mexicali are advised to use the old Ensenada – San Felipe road.
