Caltrans Hosts Public Open House Tuesday Night For State Route 98 Widening Project

EL CENTRO, Calif.—Caltrans will host an Open House on Tuesday, from 5-8 p.m. at the Mains Elementary School located at 655 Sheridan Avenue in Calexico to meet with community members about the State Route 98 (SR-98) Widening Project scheduled to begin construction in early April.

The public is invited to “drop-in” anytime between 5-8 p.m. and meet with Caltrans project team members to learn about the project—including long-term detours and full closures on portions of SR-98 during the year construction period.

Phase 1B of the SR-98 Widening Project will widen SR-98 between Eady and Ollie avenues in Calexico from two to four lanes and help relieve congestion.  The work includes installing a traffic signal at Cesar Chavez Boulevard and adding sidewalks along the length of the project.  

For more information, contact the Caltrans Public Information Office at (619) 688-6670.
