November is fast approaching and many of us will be returning (or, have already returned) to San Felipe for the winter season. Reports are that construction on Highway 5 is nearing completion. A five mile dirt detour stretch of road is all that remains to be done. The detour is located just before the mine and extends north approximately four and a half miles. It is said to be hard packed and rutted. The new highway is reported to be smooth, nice and with wider shoulders. Given that they have had rain recently, it should be a beautiful drive!
If anyone else has anymore updates to road conditions, please post them here!
