Biking in Imperial County

The shoulders of I-8 and segments of Evan Hewes Highway in Imperial County will be temporarily closed to bicyclists due to construction on the Interstate 8 Update Project. A free shuttle is available to carry cyclists in both directions during construction. Touring cyclists are encouraged to use an alternate route such as State Route 78 to Blythe/Interstate 10 to Arizona.

Cyclists are encouraged to follow safety precautions and to avoid entering construction zones. 

The I-8 Update is a multi-year project that will construct 48 miles of Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement and replace asphalt shoulders. The project, to be constructed in five segments, will provide a smoother ride and significantly extend the life expectancy of the roadway. Completion of the project is expected in 2019.
