Highway problems in Sonora

Can't Post | Private Reply
A poster on the Alamos Yahoo group is reporting that Highway 15 is closed, temporarily, between Ciudad Obregon and Navojoa due to washed out bridges, as a result of Henriette yesterday.

Any updates? We will be driving that section on Thursday, headed south, however, and wonder about delays? Any news would be appreciated.
thanks,

Nancy - sorry I've read no updates but after this amount of time, I'm sure they have a diversion in place. The bridge washout is not an unusual happening in that part of Sonora during heavy rains - they are used to dealing with it. Just be prepared for bumpy diversions.

Two new families of expats arrived in Mazatlan yesterday. They had delays but they are here, truck load of furniture and all. They crossed the border about the same time the storm hit Sinaloa and Sonora. Drive safely!

We just returned from a trip to Guaymas and found the roads to be open with no problems. There was a washout due to Henriette between Alamos and Navojoa but it was only in one lane which caused no problem. Today it was repaired. As for a bridge being out between Navojoa and Obregon, not so. Apparently during the storm, water had flowed across Highway 15 possibly causing temporary road closures. We could see where the highway department had posted markers during that time. So whoever is planning a road trip on Thursday and wondering about the report of road closures - the road is open and in good shape.
