State Route 115 (SR 115) is a state highway in the U.S. state of California. It runs from Interstate 8 southeast of Holtville to Calipatria in Imperial County. SR 115's direction is not determined by its curves unlike most highways; rather the route turns at several 90-degree intersections.

Route description[edit]

This route is part of the California Freeway and Expressway System[2] and is eligible for the State Scenic Highway System.[3] However, it is not a scenic highway as defined by Caltrans.[4]

The route begins with an interchange at Interstate 8. It then heads northward and briefly enters Holtville. Near its exit of the city, it intersects a few county roads before beginning an overlap with SR 78. Upon leaving, it intersects CR 26. After a few miles, it reaches its north end at Calipatria at SR 111.

History[edit]

The segment south of SR 78 was slightly altered in 1972 after its definition in 1963. The northern segment was also defined in 1963, but it remains as it was established.[5]

Major intersections[edit]

Except where prefixed with a letter, postmiles were measured on the road as it was in 1964, and do not necessarily reflect current mileage. R reflects a realignment in the route since then, and T indicates postmiles classified as temporary.[6] The entire route is in Imperial County.
