Southern Tier Section 1 Map 4 Long Term Road Closures Dec 2019
« on: December 11, 2019, 11:50:57 pm »
Long term bridge outages on S80 and alternate route S29 have closed both these routes to thru traffic.  (The S80 bridge is located near the "S80" label on the map.  The S29 bridge is located where the blue line stream crosses S29 just south of I8.) Hence, the longest segment of I8 shown on Section 1 Map 4 is open to bicycles. Although much of the open segment on S80 on Section 1 Map 4 is very rough.  CA98 east of S29 essentially has no shoulder and has significant truck traffic.

The note posted by jhhoover only pertains to the 2014 (or earlier) versions of Southern Tier Section 1. That section was updated in the fall of 2019 and we adjusted the route to use SR 98 and go through Calexico. SR 98 does have shoulders but they diminish to closer you get to Calexico.
