The right lane of California 60 east becomes exit only for Exit 13, Crossroads Parkway. Although the interchange with Interstate 605 is located in unincorporated Los Angeles County, the interchange with Crossroads Parkway is located in the City of Industry. True to its name, the City of Industry is a jobs center with ample employment opportunities, but it is only home to 777 residents (per the 2000 Census). Incorporated on June 18, 1957, the City of Industry is zoned almost entirely as industrial or commercial. Photos taken 02/26/11 and 07/03/05.
Eastbound California 60 reaches Exit 13, Crossroads Parkway. This sign was also replaced between 2006 and 2011. Photos taken 02/26/11 and 07/15/06.
Advancing east from Crossroads Parkway, SR 60 follows a linear corridor through the City of Industry to Diamond Bar and SR 57. Photo taken 07/03/05.

The right two lanes become exit only for Exit 16, Hacienda Boulevard (former California 39). California 39 is a segregated route with several distinct sections. The two signed segments are from California 1 in Huntington Beach and California 72 in La Habra and again from Interstate 10 north to a gate closure in Angeles National Forest (San Gabriel Mountains) near the Crystal Lake Recreation Area. A final segment north of Crystal Lake Recreation Area would connect California 39 to California 2 (Angeles Crest Highway), but that roadway has been closed since 1978 due to roadway damage. Photos taken 02/26/11 and 07/03/05.
An exit only tab and arrow were posted on the pedestrian bridge prior to the off-ramp to Exit 16, Hacienda Boulevard (former California 39). This pedestrian bridge has since been removed. Photo taken 07/03/05.
Eastbound California 60 (Pomona Freeway) reaches Exit 16, Hacienda Boulevard (former California 39). Use Hacienda Boulevard north to the City of Industry, La Puente, and West Covina; use Hacienda Boulevard south to Hacienda Heights, La Habra Heights, and La Habra. According to the legislative definition of California 39, plans call for the route to take the following route from La Habra to West Covina: Beach Boulevard north, Whittier Boulevard east, Harbor Boulevard north, Fullerton Road north, Colima Road (or parallel route) west, and Azusa Avenue north. It is unclear when, if ever, the Puente Hills gap of California 39 will be signed. Photos taken 02/26/11 and 07/03/05.
The next exit along California 60 (Pomona Freeway) is Exit 18, Los Angeles County N-8 (Azusa Avenue). The county route spans both Orange and Los Angeles County. It begins at the intersection of California 39 (Beach Boulevard) and La Mirada Boulevard in the city of Buena Park. From there, Orange County N-8 changes into Los Angeles County N-8 upon entering the city of La Mirada. Upon entering the city of Whittier, Los Angeles County N-8 connects with Colima Road, which travels northeast into Hacienda Heights. At Azusa Avenue, Los Angeles County N-8 turns north into the City of Industry and West Covina, ending at Interstate 10 Exit 36 (the same spot where California 39' northern segment resumes its northerly journey toward Azusa). The county route offers an alternative to the combination of Hacienda Road and Hacienda Boulevard or the combination of Harbor Drive and Fullerton Road to traverse the Puente Hills.
