EL CENTRO, Calif. — Crews will extend one-way traffic control through Wednesday along a segment of State Route 111 (SR-111) at Davis and Gillespie roads, about five miles northwest of Niland in Imperial County, according to Caltrans.

Both directions of traffic will alternately share the one open lane day and night as pile-driving work continues for the SR-111 Niland Geyser Mitigation Project.

Beginning Thursday, the construction schedule is expected to return to 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays.

The speed limit through the construction zone has been reduced to 55 mph. Motorists are reminded to drive cautiously in the area and to watch for highway workers and construction equipment.

Caltrans staff thanks community members and motorists for their patience for any delays and inconvenience during construction.
