Imperial Valley Fire May Temporarily Close State Route 111

SAN DIEGO – Motorists should be advised that temporary closures might be necessary at State Route 111 and Keystone Road in Imperial County due to a smoldering mulch fire that was burning during the weekend, according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).

SR-111 would be closed between Harris and Keystone roads, with Dogwood Road as the detour, if smoke causes a decrease in visibility. The fire may continue to smolder for several more days.

Motorists are advised to drive with caution through the area or take an alternate route. For more information, please contact the Public Information Office at (619) 688-6670.
