UPDATE ON EARTHQUAKE IMPACT

DOWNTOWN CALEXICO

Due to recent aftershocks and a roof cave-in on Third Street, we are reassessing structures and
reevaluating them as a security measure. As such, the plan to open downtown to pedestrian
traffic is being delayed until further notice. In the interest of public safety we have extended the area of closure to now include Third Street from Paulin Avenue to Heber Avenue.
All businesses, public streets and sidewalks bounded by First St. to Third St. between Paulin Ave. and Heber Ave. are closed. Pedestrian and vehicular traffic are not allowed in this area until further notice.
PORT OF ENTRY
The Downtown Calexico Port of Entry remains open and fully operational.
