Mexico's Federal Highway 1D is a mostly tolled federal highway in the state of Baja California. It is precisely 98.17 km (61.00 mi) long. Between Avenida Mar Báltico (Baltic Sea Avenue) and the northern terminus, it is locally known as Segunda Benito Juárez. The rest of Highway 1D is locally known as tolled Autopista Escenica Tijuana-Ensenada (Tijuana-Ensenada scenic highway). Highway 1D is a high-speed alternative to the neighboring Highway 1, as it is four lanes wide. Due to its proximity to the Pacific Ocean, it is more scenic than Highway 1 between Tijuana and Ensenada.

There are 3 toll booths along the highway, and each toll booth charges regular automobiles 31 pesos to pass. The northernmost toll booth is located at km 5, within the city of Tijuana. The second toll booth is located in Rosarito Beach, and the third and final toll booth is located just a few km north of Ensenada.

On December 19th, 2013, several small earthquakes occurred within the region, causing a 300 metres (980 ft) section of Highway 1D to collapse, falling over 100 metres (330 ft) into the ocean below at km 93.[1] On December 28th, 2013, two cement trucks were driving along this stretch when the highway collapsed with no one hurt.[1] The road remain closed to all traffic in both directions for nearly a year while the highway was repaired. Traffic was re-routed along Mexico Highway 1 (inland) during the Highway 1D closure. The highway reopened to all traffic on December 16th, 2014.[2]

Exit list[edit]

The entirety of the route is in Baja California. Toll rates are current as of Jan. 29, 2016.
