State Route 111 and Best Road Closed on Wednesday

SAN DIEGO – Highway work crews will close a quarter-mile section of State Route 111 just south of Shank Road on Wednesday, Jan. 6 from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.

Best Road will also be closed between Shank Road and Brawley Beef Way during this time, according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).
The closures will allow crews to remove bridge falsework as part of the ongoing construction on the SR-78/SR-111 Brawley Bypass Project.

Motorists northbound on SR-111 will be detoured along Main Street to northbound Best Road, then left on Brawley Beef Way, right on Slider Road, left on Shank Road and right onto northbound SR-111. Motorists southbound on SR-111 will use the same detour route in the opposite direction.

The detour route for motorists on Best Road will be via Brawley Beef Way, Slider Road, and Shank Road to Best Road.
Crews will place detour signs to assist motorists around the closures.
