Stretch of Highway 111 Closed for Weekend

The road near Mecca and the Salton Sea is shut down so crews can install a new bridge.

A stretch of Highway 111 near Mecca and the Salton Sea will be closed in both directions starting today while crews replace an old bridge and upgrade a drainage system.

Highway 111 on the east side of the Salton Sea between Mecca and Niland will be closed from 7 a.m. to Tuesday, Dec. 11 at 7 a.m., according to Caltrans.

Traffic will be detoured onto State Route 86 on the west side of the Salton Sea. Bombay Beach-area residents, business owners and customers can use Highway 111 north to and from Mecca, according to Caltrans.

The project, costing an estimated $1 million, will include the demolition and removal of a 65-year-old bridge and building the highway over box culverts that were installed in October.
