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.
