I traveled the road to Tecate Saturday and Sunday. The construction is getting a bit better with a few more sections of asphalt but with the rain last weekend it was a soupy, slippery mess. We almost got stuck in a section going up a small grade where several drivers stopped to size up the mess. We managed to maintain our momentum by going around them and clawed our way to the top of the hill but it was touch and go for awhile.

Bottom line: if it's raining I would not at all recommend a two wheel drive vehicle. If the weather is dry it should be okay and add another 15-20 minutes drive time, depending on traffic and your ability to pass slow vehicles in the sections under construction.
