Brawley Bypass to have opening ceremony


BRAWLEY -  The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will have a ceremony Thursday, October 18th at 9:30 a.m. to open the newly completed State Route 78/SR-111 Brawley Bypass Project.

The ceremonies will be just south of Fredericks Road in Brawley, at the intersection of Highway 86 and the new SR-78/SR-111.

A parade of commercial trucks lead by a hydrogen prototype truck will officially open the long awaited bypass that will re-direct commercial trucks away from traveling down Main Street and downtown Brawley.

Refreshments will be served after the event.
