(Traffic Realignment Workshops)…Three were held in Calexico Thursday.

They provided residents information on traffic patterns soon to be in effect. Construction on the expanded Calexico West, or downtown Port of Entry by General Services Administration is nearing completion. Residents were told southbound traffic will be re-routed via Highway 111 or Imperial Avenue to Second Street, then to the New Port beginning July 10th. Northbound Traffic will be re-routed in September. The workshops were held in the Durazo Cultural Arts Center. Residents were told once Cesar Chavez Boulevard was expanded, it will be a straight shot across the border, to and from Mexicali.
