State Route 111 Two Rivers Rest Area to Close

SAN DIEGO – The Two Rivers Rest Area along State Route 111 near Calipatria is scheduled to close for about two months beginning Wednesday, March 31.  According to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), the recreational vehicle sanitation station will also be closed during construction.

The rest area is being renovated and brought up to current standards under the Americans with Disabilities Act. The work will include repaving and striping the parking area, installation of new accessible ramps and drinking fountain, replacing concrete sidewalks with pavers and landscaping.

Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead and make alternate arrangements for rest services and disposal of sanitary waste during the closure. On-line resources can be located by using a search engine to find California RV dumps or California RV sanitation stations.

For more information please contact the Caltrans Public Information Office at (619) 688-6670 or log on to dot.ca.gov/dist11.
