[Click here for a key to the symbols used. Some county routes were constructed with federal funds. These routes are indicated as FAP (Federal Aid Primary), FAU (Federal Aid Urban), or FAS (Federal Aid Secondary). If no funding source is shown, no federal funds were used. Note that while some segments seem to have the same attributes, they may differ in the county-local road number assigned to the segment, or in the Caltrans Map Sheet number.]
Orchard Road from I-8 to the Holtville city limits (FAS, 2.35 mi)
Cedar Avenue in Holtville from the Holtville city limits to Route 115 (W 5th Street) (FAS, 0.27 mi)
Holt Avenue in Holt from Route 115 (W 5th Street) to E. Alamo Road (Ninth Street) (FAS, 0.53 mi)
Holt Road from E. Alamo Road (Ninth Street) to Gonder Road (FAS, 9.56 mi)
Gonder Road from Holt Road to Butters Road (FAS, 0.55 mi)
Butters Road from Gonder Road to Route 78 (FAS, 1.55 mi)
This route was defined in 1970.
In September 2019, it was reported that there was an effort underway to
move trucks off of Orchard Road (first segment of County Sign Route S32). At an Imperial
County Traffic Advisory Committee meeting in August 2019, it was reported
that Caltrans proposes to install signage along Route 7 advising drivers
of large trucks going north to avoid Orchard Road and use alternate
routes. Route 7 becomes Orchard at Interstate 8 south of Holtville. This
is part of a larger proposal for a package of guidance signs to provide
directional information for trucks as a part of its Traffic Investigative
Report, guiding truck traffic to the Port of Calexico to use routes such
as Route 115 as opposed to the smaller roads such as County Sign Route S32. The city of
Holtville will eventually need to cooperate with the removal of
truck-route designations at Orchard and Fourth Street, the north terminus
of Orchard. Note that the truck restrictions will not affect local
agricultural trucks. Any truck under 53 feet would still be allowed on
Orchard Road. Caltrans has already developed this project study report.
Another mid-term solution up to county Public Works would look at the
possibility to pave a separate dirt-road arterial.
