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 altered in 1972 after its definition in 1963. The segment between I-8 south to SR 98 near Bonds Corner was deleted, and the definition was clarified from "Route 8 near Holtville" to "Route 8 southeasterly of Holtville". 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, based on the alignment that existed at the time, and do not necessarily reflect current mileage. R reflects a realignment in the route since then, M indicates a second realignment, L refers an overlap due to a correction or change, and T indicates postmiles classified as temporary (for a full list of prefixes, see the list of postmile definitions).[6] Segments that remain unconstructed or have been relinquished to local control may be omitted. The entire route is in Imperial County.
