EL CENTRO, Calif. — Construction crews will close both directions of Cole Road at State Route 111 (SR-111) in Calexico Monday through Tuesday at 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day for paving operations, according to Caltrans. SR-111 will be reduced to one lane in each direction through the Cole Road intersection.

Detour signs will be posted directing westbound motorists on Cole Road, on the east side of the SR-111, to turn north onto Rockwood Avenue/Yourman Road or turn south onto Rockwood Avenue.

Eastbound travelers on Cole Road, to the west of SR-111, will be directed around the closure to turn north onto West Van De Graaff Avenue or to turn south onto Scaroni Avenue.

Motorists on SR-111 approaching the Cole Road intersection can expect slower traffic flow during construction activities and are advised to allow additional travel time.

On Wednesday through Tuesday, February 5, work will continue in the city of Calexico on SR-111 at the intersection with State Route 98. Advance warning signs will be in place advising for closures and detours. Motorists approaching the work area can expect slower traffic and are advised to plan ahead and allow additional travel time.

Completion of the project will result in long lasting repairs needed to sustain a reliable and safe transportation system for the users who depend on these routes.

Travelers in the area are reminded to watch for highway workers and construction equipment and to Be Work Zone Alert. The work schedule is subject to change due to traffic incidents, weather, availability of equipment and/or materials, and/or construction-related issues.
