Old In-Ko-Pah RoadPhotographed: 2017
Location: In-Ko-Pah Park, California
This roadway likely pre-dates US Route 80 and may have originally been part of the Bankhead Highway. Old Highway 80 is routed next to this road which basically runs down a drainage bottom. This section collapsed at an old creek bridge.
The replacement bridge along Old Highway 80 was built in 1932. Like the Jacumba Railway bridge that was built in 1931, this old section of road appears to have become obsolete through the rainy seasons.

A rare C-Block marker still intact along Old Highway 80. The actual marker is located along an older portion of the road that was eventually bypassed, perhaps in 1931.

Location: Myer Creek, Imperial County, California
Part of the original road-cut from Old Highway 80 through Myer Creek. When the road was active, it supported both Eastbound and Westbound traffic. Interstate only routes Eastbound traffic through Myer Creek (Westbound traffic was moved to a new route through Devils Canyon). The ruins are surreal, and were likely damaged after Hurricane Kathleen devastated the area.
