Puerto Rico Highway 111

Puerto Rico Highway 111 (PR-111) is a highway connecting Aguadilla, Puerto Rico at Puerto Rico Highway 2 and Puerto Rico Highway 115 to Utuado, Puerto Rico at Puerto Rico Highway 140.[2] It is the main highway to Moca and San Sebastián, being a two-lane highway before turning rural on its way to Lares, where it meets PR-129, which taking north goes to Arecibo and meets PR-2 and PR-22. In Lares, it becomes a divided avenue, replacing an old, narrow segment, but then becomes rural again. It continues to Utuado, crossing PR-10, and merging shortly with PR-123. It ends at PR-140 east of Utuado, near Jayuya. It is one of two long highways going west–east through the center of Puerto Rico (the other being PR-156). It is named the Carretera Enrique Laguerre through all its length.[3]
