SAN DIEGO - A scenic toll road that connects Tijuana to Ensenada collapsed early Saturday.

The collapse on the coastal road occurred at kilometer 93 + 500 near Ensenada, according to a report on Ensenada.net. The collapse appears to have been caused by a landslide under the coastal road.

Jean-Loup Bitterlin, the president of the Hotel Association of Ensenada told 10News the portion of road that collapsed was in process of being repaired. He says crews are going to have to build an alternate detour route so they can work on the repair site.

Traffic has been diverted to the old inland access road. No injuries were reported. Officials say repairs could take more than a year.
