California 210/Foothill Freeway (former California 30) east
The interchange complex between Interstate 210/Foothill Freeway and California 57/Orange Freeway is designated as the Glendora Officer Louie Pompei Memorial Interchange. The first California 210 east reassurance shield is posted shortly thereafter. Photo taken 11/14/04.
This is the first California 210 east reassurance shield on the Foothill Freeway in Glendora. Photo taken 11/14/04.
The next three exits along California 210/Foothill Freeway east are Exit 46, San Dimas Avenue; Exit 47, Junction California 66 (Historic U.S. 66)/Foothill Boulevard; and Exit 48, Fruit Street. Photo taken 11/14/04.
The right lane of California 210/Foothill Freeway east becomes exit only for Exit 46, San Dimas Avenue. Photo taken 11/14/04.
Eastbound California 210/Foothill Freeway reaches Exit 46, San Dimas Avenue. This is the only exit to serve the city of San Dimas from Interstate 210. San Dimas, which incorporated on August 4, 1960, had a population of 34,980 as of the 2000 Census. Photo taken 11/14/04.
At the base of the offramp to San Dimas Avenue is a stop sign, and looking left is a view of the California 210 overpass with an Interstate 210 trailblazer sign for westbound. Photo taken 11/14/04.
The next exit along California 210/Foothill Freeway east is Exit 47, Junction California 66 (Historic U.S. 66)/Foothill Boulevard (one mile). The newer reflective signs do not indicate the pending interchange with California 66. Photo taken 11/14/04.
This mileage sign along California 210/Foothill Freeway east provides the distance to the next three exits: Exit 47, Junction California 66 (Historic U.S. 66)/Foothill Boulevard; Exit 48, Fruit Street; and Exit 50, Towne Avenue. Photo taken 11/14/04.

This view looks north from the California 210/Foothill Freeway into the towering San Gabriel Mountains that give this freeway its name. Around this point, Interstate 210 leaves San Dimas and enters the city of La Verne (incorporated August 20, 1906; population 31,638 as of 2000 Census). Photo taken 11/14/04.
Eastbound California 210/Foothill Freeway meets Exit 47, Junction California 66 (Historic U.S. 66)/Foothill Boulevard. This exit also connects to California 30/Base Line Road east. Prior to completion of the freeway, California 30 and California 66 both provided arterial routes east; now, California 210 is the main route east. Both California 30 and California 66 have state-maintained segments heading east, but both have significant segments that are maintained locally by cities along the routes. To California 66, depart the freeway and turn right (east). To California 30/Base Line Road, depart the freeway and turn left (west) then right (east). For Historic U.S. 66, depart here and turn either left (west) or right (east). Photo taken 11/14/04.
We now enter the newer segment of California 210/Foothill Freeway. This section opened to traffic on November 24, 2002; AARoads staff visited the ceremony (210 Play on the Freeway) dedicating the new freeway on September 28, 2002 (see main Interstate 210 page and below for photos of the new freeway on that day). The next exit along eastbound is Exit 48, Fruit Street (one mile). Photo taken 11/14/04.
Back in 2002, eastbound California 210 approaches Fruit Street. There are several overcrossings between this vantage point and the freeway offramp to Fruit Street. While the first overpass is a roadway, the second two overpasses are actually flumes that carry storm drain/waterways over the freeway. This is an effort to ease drainage issues on this recessed freeway. If the culverts did not pass over the freeway, the additional water would go to the lowest point, which in this case is the freeway. Even so, there are massive storm drains built under the freeway to carry excess water away during rainstorms and from mountain runoff. At the time this picture was taken, some of the overhead signs had not been placed, including this Fruit Street exit sign. Note the lack of exit numbers. Photo taken 09/28/02.
Still in 2002, this sign is posted on California 210 east at the Fruit Street overcrossing. The mileage (48.08) is the distance from Interstate 5 east to this spot, since Interstate 210/California 210 is wholly within Los Angeles County to this point. Photos taken 09/28/02.
These lane markings are posted on eastbound at the Fruit Street overcrossing. These lane markings are unlike any other found on a California freeway: They appear to made of painted concrete, and the Botts Dots are not to be found. It remains to be seen if this will become a new standard for California lane markings. Photo taken 09/28/02.
This mileage sign along California 210/Foothill Freeway east provides the distance to the next three exits: Exit 48, Fruit Street; Exit 50, Towne Avenue; and Exit 52, Junction Former California 30/Baseline Road and 16th Street to Upland. Photo taken 11/14/04.
The Foothill Freeway through La Verne was constructed below grade, and several bridges carry city streets across the freeway. The reflective signs generally do not have the exit number along this stretch because the freeway opened only a short time after the Caltrans exit numbering directive was issued. The signs were already created and in place, so the exit number will be added in later. Photo taken 11/14/04.
Fruit Street travels north to California 30/Base Line Road and south to California 66/Foothill Boulevard, where it changes names to White Avenue, which continues south into Pomona and passes by the Los Angeles County Fairplex. Photo taken 11/14/04.

The next exit along California 210/Foothill Freeway east is Exit 52, Junction Former California 30/Baseline Road and 16th Street to Upland (1.25 miles). California 30 shifts from paralleling California 210 on the north side to the south side of the freeway; California 210 will curve a bit to the northeast at this interchange. Photo taken 11/14/04.
Another mileage sign along California 210/Foothill Freeway east provides the distance to the next three exits: Exit 52, Junction Former California 30/Baseline Road and 16th Street to Upland; Exit 54, Mountain Avenue; and Exit 56, Campus Avenue to California 83/Euclid Avenue (erroneously shown as "Campus Road"). Photo taken 11/14/04.
Eastbound California 210/Foothill Freeway reaches Exit 52, Junction Former California 30/Baseline Road and 16th Street to Upland. This is the last interchange located in Los Angeles County; San Bernardino County and the city of Upland lie ahead. Photo taken 11/14/04.
California 210 leaves Los Angeles and the city of Claremont and enters the city of Upland (population 68,393 as of 2000 Census; incorporated May 15, 1906; elevation 1,242 feet above sea level) in San Bernardino County. Photo taken 11/14/04.
Cucamonga Peak (elevation 8,859 feet above sea level) rises in the San Gabriel Mountains as California 210 briefly turns northeast. Photo taken 11/14/04.
The carpool (high occupancy vehicle) lane continues in San Bernardino County. Photo taken 11/14/04.
The next exit along California 210 east is Exit 54, Mountain Avenue to Mount Baldy and Upland. Photo taken 11/14/04.
This mileage sign along California 210/Foothill Freeway east provides the distance to the next three exits: Exit 54, Mountain Avenue; Exit 56, Campus Avenue to California 83/Euclid Avenue; and Exit 57, Carnelian Street to Rancho Cucamonga. A changeable message sign warns of gusty winds ahead on this blustery fall day. Photo taken 11/14/04.
California 210 east approaches Exit 54, Mountain Avenue to Mount Baldy and Upland. Photo taken 11/14/04.
Eastbound California 210 meets Exit 54, Mountain Avenue. Photo taken 11/14/04.
Now on the offramp from eastbound California 210 to Mountain Avenue, at the time this photo was taken, the vehicles on the road here were leaving the "Play on the Freeway" festivities in Upland. Photo taken 09/28/02.
This view shows California 210 passing under Mountain Avenue. This is the first exit into Upland, and on the day this picture was taken, the last exit signed and striped. At the time this photo was taken, the pavement markings ended just beyond the overcrossing. Photo taken 09/28/02.
The next exit along California 210 east is Exit 56, Campus Avenue to California 30/19th Street in eastern Upland. This sign is posted on the Mountain Avenue overpass. Photo taken 11/14/04.
Eastbound California 210 passes under San Antonio Avenue. There is no interchange programmed for this overpass, which is found prior to the Euclid Avenue overpass and the Campus Avenue interchange. This date stamp is located on the first bent (bridge support) along eastbound. Note that it was constructed in 1998, which is accurate since the bridges were the first fixtures to be placed on California 210 while it was under construction. Photos taken 09/28/02.
Campus Avenue is a north-south city street in Upland that was realigned to its current diamond interchange configuration when California 210 was constructed. The interchange does not directly connect with Campus Avenue; one must use 19th Street (California 30) or 20th Street to take Campus Avenue south or north in eastern Upland. This interchange also serves as the most direct link to California 83/Euclid Avenue. California 83, which begins at the point where California 83 crosses over California 210. The northern endpoint of California 83 used to be at California 30/19th Street in Upland, travels south along Euclid Avenue to meet California 71 near Corona. There is no direct access to California 83 from California 210 (see photo of Euclid Avenue in next photobox). Photo taken 11/14/04.
This mileage sign along California 210/Foothill Freeway east provides the distance to the next three exits: Exit 56, Campus Avenue to California 83/Euclid Avenue; Exit 57, Carnelian Street to Rancho Cucamonga; and Exit 58, Archibald Avenue. The bridge ahead carries Euclid Avenue (California 83) over California 210. A decision was made not to directly connect California 83 and California 210 with an interchange, so this connection is best achieved via Campus Avenue south to California 30 west to California 83 south. Photo taken 11/14/04.
An exit number roadside sign is posted along California 210 east for Exit 56, Campus Avenue. Oddly no trailblazer shields for Californis 83 are posted here. Photo taken 11/14/04.
Prior to freeway opening, eastbound California 210 approaches Campus Avenue back when this was a future interchange (before the freeway opened in November 2002). The land to the south (right) of the freeway was planned for a large commercial center based on 2002 development plans. Photo taken 09/28/02.
Eastbound California 210 reaches Exit 56, Campus Avenue to California 30/19th Street and California 83/Euclid Avenue south in Upland. Photo taken 11/14/04.
This suite of photos shows the California 210 and Campus Avenue interchange prior to completion of the freeway in September 2002. The vacant land on the sides of the freeway was undeveloped at the time this photo was taken, but the interchange is developed for a shopping area and housing area, both of which would be accessible from the Campus Avenue interchange. Much of the land that is currently vacant along the California 210 corridor is ripe for development due to the increased access provided by the freeway. One tent at the "Play on the Freeway" event was dedicated to this commercial development. Photos taken 09/28/02.
This mileage sign along California 210/Foothill Freeway east provides the distance to the next three exits: Exit 57, Carnelian Street to Rancho Cucamonga; Exit 58, Archibald Avenue; and Exit 59, Haven Avenue. An exit number sign is posted along the roadside here. Around this point, California 210 leaves Upland and enters the city of Rancho Cucamonga (population 127,743 as of 2000 Census, incorporated November 30, 1977). The city resulted from the merger of three previously unincorporated communities in 1977: Alta Loma, Cucamonga, and Etiwanda. Photo taken 11/14/04.
