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.
