Darn, now that I've left California.

While I was there, I saw an uncovered BGS confirming that the CA 11 exit from CA 905 is exit 8. But if anyone down there can report on the exit number (if any) for Enrico Fermi Dr. at the east end (so far) of CA 11, that would be much appreciated.  (Last I checked, Wikipedia said it'll be exit 1B. But I don't trust Wikipedia on this.)

I actually took that from the Caltrans exit numbering site: http://www.dot.ca.gov/hq/traffops/engineering/calnexus/pdf/11.pdf

Thanks. I've found much of the CalNEXUS site to be seriously outdated, and sometimes out of synch with what's posted in the field. But good to hear that at least part of the site has caught up to California's newest state route.

I'll add that to the Travel Mapping database (like other CA state routes, as an "in-dev" route not yet ready for people to map their travels), once I take a few days to recover from my almost six-week road trip to and from California.

According to the article, the rest of the project (including the connectors) should be done by the end of the year. But it's always good to see any new highway open and ready to drive, like CA 11.

That's just for the connectors to CA 125, and the short extension of CA 125 to CA 905. The rest of the project, extending CA 11 from Enrico Fermi Dr. to a new border crossing, awaits funding.

And where does it end?

The part of California SR 11 that opened on Saturday, March 19, 2016, connects California SR 905 with Enrico Fermi Drive, a distance of 1.7 miles at cost of $103.4 million. The remainder of the route will be built in two more phases, with the aforementioned connections to California SR 125 (partial) as well as the final connection of California SR 11 from Enrico Fermi Drive east to Siempre Viva Road, extending south to the new border crossing, will be built and opened to traffic simultaneously with the border crossing.

Trucks will appreciate the first phase of California SR 11, as it will connect northbound trucks with the freeway network. The following Google Maps link shows the aerial image of the northbound truck crossing, which passes through Mexico and U.S. customs along roadways that parallel the international border. In addition to the US Customs facilities right at the border crossing, the California Highway Patrol inspection area is located at the southeastern corner of the intersection of Siempre Viva Road and Enrico Fermi Road. Trucks would travel parallel to the international border to get to the CHP inspection area. See aerial at: https://www.google.com/maps/@32.5528488,-116.9288419,961m/data=!3m1!1e3.

I read an article about this proposed border crossing and it talked a lot about where the money for the actual construction will come from, but not about where the staffing will come from. Isn't a big part of the problem in the San Diego area a lack of customs staff? I don't see how this would do anything but give cars another place to sit in line.

So now that this connection is open, does that mean 905 will have interstate shields posted now? Thought they were waiting for the CA 11 interchange to open to pull the SR shields off the BGS gantries on I-5.

I wouldn't be surprised if 905 remains a state highway for the rest of eternity (same with 210, and maybe 15).

You can't embed Google Maps links as images like that.  Here's the link, for anyone who wants to see it: https://www.google.com/maps/@32.5640365,-116.9564619,3a,75y,82.91h,89.08t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sLvBxB1-apmG1LyPoFzh8vw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

IMO, CA SR 11 should be built longer into Tecate along the border...which can reduce traffic in 2-lane sections of CA SR 94 which becomes a freeway in La Mesa-Lemon Grove. The Interstate 905 plan remains a state highway project (CA SR 905) because there's no interstate shield to indicate. There's another route in Imperial valley, CA SR 7, meant to connect I-8 with Mexicali's airport and factory zones.

I don't know, there is basically nothing out there between where 905 turns south and Tecate. Also, wouldn't that portion of land be protected due to the fact that its in the Otay County Open Space Preserve?

I just moved away from Boulevard CA, the thinking is that someday there will be a short freeway with crossing linking I-8 to MD-2 near the Macumba Hot Springs exit.

Article on funding Phase II of California 11, which will take the toll road southeast to the second Otay Mesa Border Crossing:

http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/2016/jul/07/highway-to-new-border-crossing-gets-49-million/

Quote
A state highway to a new border crossing aimed at reducing road congestion between the United States and Mexico has received $49.3 million in federal funding for its final leg.

The San Diego Association of Governments announced on Thursday that the agency and Caltrans are expecting to receive money from the Department of Transportation to build a one-mile portion of state Route 11 in Otay Mesa. The funding will also go toward building southbound connectors for state Routes 905, 125 and 11.

As of a couple of days ago, no new pavement was open, but it looked like the SB 125 ramps were all done except for striping. The BGSes were up. They could open any day. However, they hadn't turned so much as a shovelful toward constructing the NB 125 ramps. That's apparently a completely separate phase.

Thanks, Rickmastfan. I knew the opening was coming up quick but didn't expect it to be ready on Nov 30. I will head down there to snap some pictures in the next few weeks. It is notable that this project opens the links from 11 east to 125 north, 11 west to 125 north, and from 905 west/north to 125 north. The links from 125 south to 905 south/east, 125 south to 11 east, and 125 south to 905 west are still pending. 10 News stated these links would be under construction by 2018.

This article covers the northbound connectors that opened this week: http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/politics/sd-me-government-1201-story.html

This article covers funding for the southbound connectors and the second phase of SR 11, which will extend the freeway past Enrico Fermi Drive to the edge of the border crossing/port of entry. A third helping of funds is necessary to complete the actual port of entry/border crossing. http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/politics/sdut-highway-to-new-border-crossing-gets-49-million-2016jul07-story.html
