California 16

Routing

California 16 begins at its junction with California 20 just east of Clear Lake, then heads southeast via Cache Creek Canyon to Rumsey, Esparto, and Woodland. At one time, California 16 continued unabated through Woodland through Sacramento, but that segment was decommissioned. It is secretly routed along Interstate 5 from Woodland to Sacramento and U.S. 50 from Sacramento until its exit. California 16 then continues as a signed route from that point southeasterly to California 49 near Amador City via Jackson Road.

Highway Guide

California 16 east
Eastbound California 16 approaching junction Interstate 505. The advance signage for Interstate 505 is not too good, so be prepared for the exit ramps to appear without much warning. Notice how little vegetation there is here, aside from the agricultural fields. Photo taken by Joel Windmiller, 03/29/01.
