CLUB VAG ROAD REPORT: Amy Halverson of Club Vagabundos sent in a road report concerning Highway 5 after the heavy rains from Rosa.
“Mexicali to San Felipe is open. After that, it’s not passable,” she said. “We are recommending not to take this road south of San Felipe. South of San Felipe the road goes from bad to worse and the dirt section after Coco's is horrible. Lots of road construction starting just south of South Beach all the way to Puertecitos. There is a detour as the road is being completely replaced with culverts under the road eliminating all the dips for water runoff. You will travel right next to the construction, but it is very bumpy and dusty. The road south is nice once you pass Puertecitos but then is really bad again as you cross from Coco's to Hwy 1. Seems like they just stopped the construction of the new bridges. Driving south of San Felipe in a motorhome or car is not recommended.
