Leaving the California 71/Chino Valley Freeway interchange, California 83 proceeds north along Euclid Avenue toward Upland. The San Gabriel Mountains are clearly visible on this cool, winter day. Photo taken 01/30/05.
California 83 is Euclid Avenue, originating at California 71/Chino Valley Freeway in southern San Bernardino County and extending north through Ontario to end at the point where Euclid Avenue crosses over California 210/Foothill Freeway in Upland. The state route was extended north a bit with the completion of California 210 (the former northern terminus was at Former California 30/19th Street), but there is no direct connection between California 83 and California 210.
