Federal Highway 1D (Spanish: Carretera Federal 1D, Fed. 1D) is a tolled (Spanish: quota) part of the Mexico Federal Highways, paralleling Fed. 1. There are two segments, one in the state of Baja California and another in the state of Baja California Sur.

In Baja California[edit]

Fed. 1D starts in Baja California and is 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 Fed. 1D is locally known as tolled Autopista Escenica Tijuana-Ensenada (Tijuana-Ensenada scenic highway). Fed. 1D is a high-speed alternative to the neighboring Fed. 1, as it is four lanes wide. Due to its proximity to the Pacific Ocean, it is more scenic than Fed. 1 between Tijuana and Ensenada.

There are three toll plazas along the highway that each collect 31 pesos per automobile. The first or northernmost toll plaza is located at km 5, within the city of Tijuana. The second toll plaza is located in Rosarito Beach, and the third and final toll plaza is located just a few kilometers north of Ensenada.

On December 19, 2013, several small earthquakes occurred within the region, causing a 300 metres (980 ft) section of Fed. 1D to collapse, falling over 100 metres (330 ft) into the ocean below at km 93.[1] On December 28, 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 Fed. 1 (inland) during the Fed. 1D closure. The highway reopened to all traffic on December 16, 2014.[2]

Toll rates are current as of January 31, 2017.[3]

Baja California Sur[edit]

The only toll road in the state of Baja California is the Libramiento Aeropuerto Los Cabos - San José del Cabo - Cabo San Lucas. This road provides direct connection between the Los Cabos International Airport, San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, with the extension to the latter opening in 2015.[4] It is 58.894 kilometres (36.595 mi) long[5] and operated by Caminos y Puentes Federales, with varying tolls depending on the exit taken; it costs 65 pesos to travel from the Aeropuerto Los Cabos to Cabo San Lucas, 50 pesos between the two cities, and 32 pesos to bypass one city.[3]

The road is closed due to damage from Tropical Storm Lidia. Two bridges collapsed and there is no timetable for reopening.
