The next exit along eastbound is with Exit 11, Figueroa Street south to U.S. 66/Figueroa Street southwest to downtown L.A. and Historic U.S. 66 (Colorado Boulevard) east to Pasadena. (Figueroa Street and Colorado Boulevard are the first generation of U.S. 66 through this part of Los Angeles. When U.S. 66 was relocated to the Arroyo Seco Parkway [now Pasadena Freeway] in the late 1930s/early 1940s, this route was signed as Alternate U.S. 66 until 1964.) Photo taken 12/20/09.
Eagle Rock, a rounded rock formation, rises on the north side of the freeway prior to the Figueroa Street off-ramp. Photo taken 12/20/09.
Eastbound California 134 (Ventura Freeway) reaches Exit 11, Figueroa Street south to U.S. 66/Figueroa Street southwest to downtown L.A. and Historic U.S. 66 (Colorado Boulevard) east to Pasadena. Note that there is no access to the Colorado Freeway stub from eastbound California 134; the merge point comes shortly after the Figueroa Street interchange. Photo taken 12/10/05.
The next exit along eastbound California 134 (Ventura Freeway) is Exit 12, San Rafael Avenue to Linda Vista Avenue (former California 159, before that former California 11). The next three exits all serve the Rose Bowl, including Exit 12, San Rafael Avenue; Exit 13A, Orange Grove Boulevard; and Exit 13B, Interstate 210 (Foothill Freeway) and Interstate 710 (Long Beach Freeway) Stub south. Photo taken 12/10/05.
A carpool lane entrance and exit is posted shortly thereafter. The next exit along eastbound California 134 (Ventura Freeway) is Exit 12, San Rafael Avenue to Linda Vista Avenue (former California 159, before that former California 11). Photo taken 12/10/05.
The old Colorado Freeway merges onto eastbound California 134 at this point. Once again, California 134 will travel on some very old alignment. The section of California 134 between the Colorado Freeway merge and Pasadena was originally built in 1953 and expanded to its modern configuration in 1971, including one-half of the massive arch bridge that carries the freeway over the Arroyo Seco. Photo taken 12/20/09.
The next nine exits along eastbound California 134 (Ventura Freeway) and eastbound Interstate 210 (Foothill Freeway) serve the city of Pasadena: Exit 12, San Rafael Avenue and Linda Vista Avenue (former California 11-159); Exit 13A, Orange Grove Boulevard; Exit 13B, Interstate 210 (Foothill Freeway) and Interstate 710 (Long Beach Freeway) Stub south to Del Mar Boulevard and California Boulevard; (begin Interstate 210 east) Exit 26, Lake Avenue; Exit 27, Hill Avenue; Exit 28, Altadena Drive; Exit 29A, San Gabriel Boulevard; Exit 29B, Madre Street; and Exit 30A, California 19 (California 164)/Rosemead Boulevard south. Photo taken 12/10/05.
California 134 leaves the city of Los Angeles a final time and enters the city of Pasadena, which had a 2000 Census population of 133,936. The city consisted of 23.2 square miles at that time and was incorporated on June 19, 1886. Pasadena is home to the Rose Bowl, which is a large venue that hosts the annual "Granddaddy of them all": the Tournament of Roses. Each year on New Year' Day, the city hosts the spectacular Tournament of Roses. The annual parade (with floats partially made of rose petals) follows Colorado Boulevard through Old Pasadena (downtown). The festivities culminate with the annual college football game, which often is involved in determining that year' college football champion. During the regular college season, the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) uses the Rose Bowl for its home games. Photo taken 12/20/09.
This mileage sign provides the distance to the next three exits along eastbound California 134 (Ventura Freeway): Exit 12, San Rafael Avenue and Linda Vista Avenue (former California 11-159); Exit 13A, Orange Grove Boulevard; and Exit 13B, Interstate 210 (Foothill Freeway) and Interstate 710 (Long Beach Freeway) Stub south to Del Mar Boulevard and California Boulevard. The mileage sign only lists "Del Mar Boulevard" rather than the 710 stub. California 710 is essentially unsigned on its very short freeway stub in Pasadena to avoid motorist confusion, since the link with the existing Long Beach Freeway remains unconstructed. Photo taken 12/20/09.
The final interchange along California 134 (Ventura Freeway) east will be Exit 13B, Interstate 210 (Foothill Freeway) east to San Bernardino, Interstate 210 northwest to San Fernando and all points north via Interstate 5, and the Long Beach Freeway (stub freeway pending future construction of 710 tunnel) south to Del Mar Boulevard and California Boulevard. All through traffic will be defaulted onto Interstate 210 (Foothill Freeway) east. The interchange between 210-710-134 marks the end of a very long Ventura Freeway, which originates at the Santa Barbara-Ventura County Line and extends east primarily signed as U.S. 101 and ends at the Interstate 210 interchange in Pasadena. Photo taken 12/10/05.
Eastbound California 134 (Ventura Freeway) reaches Exit 12, San Rafael Avenue and Linda Vista Avenue (former California 11-159); Exit 13A, Orange Grove Boulevard. Photo taken 12/10/05.
The next exit along eastbound California 134 (Ventura Freeway) is Exit 13A, Orange Grove Boulevard and Historic U.S. 66 (Colorado Boulevard) east. This overhead guide sign is posted on the San Rafael Avenue overpass. Photo taken 12/10/05.
This view looks down on California 134 (Ventura Freeway) east from the San Rafael Avenue (former California 159) overcrossing near the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. Photo taken 01/28/06.
The right lane of eastbound California 134 (Ventura Freeway) becomes exit only for Exit 13A, Orange Grove Boulevard and Historic U.S. 66 (Colorado Boulevard) east. The left four lanes (plus HOV lane) will connect to Interstate 210 east/west or California 710 south to Del Mar Avenue. California 134 proceeds across the Arroyo Seco on a wide, long arch bridge. Photos taken 12/20/09 and 12/10/05.
Looking through a "suicide barrier" fence is this view of the 1913 historic Colorado Street Pioneer Bridge, which carries Historic U.S. 66 (Colorado Boulevard) over the Arroyo Seco. Photo taken 12/10/05.
This view looks east along the Ventura Freeway as we cross the Arroyo Seco. The California 134 arch bridge over the Arroyo Seco was constructed in 1953 and expanded to its current width in 1971. The California 134 bridge was built to be similar to the historic 1913 Colorado Street Pioneer arch bridge. It is worthwhile to stop at the San Rafael Avenue interchange, park, and walk across the 1913 Colorado Street bridge to see the huge scale of the California 134 Ventura Freeway bridge as well as the historic 1913 bridge. Photo taken 12/10/05.
Eastbound California 134 (Ventura Freeway) reaches Exit 13A, Orange Grove Boulevard and Historic U.S. 66 (Colorado Boulevard) east to downtown Pasadena. Photo taken 12/20/09.
The next exit along eastbound California 134 (Ventura Freeway) is Exit 13B, Interstate 210 (Foothill Freeway) northwest to San Fernando and Interstate 5 and California 710/Long Beach Freeway (Stub) south to Del Mar Boulevard and California Boulevard. The stub freeway does NOT connect to Interstate 710 at this time, pending future construction of the 710 tunnel. Photos taken 12/20/09 and 01/28/06.
Eastbound California 134 (Ventura Freeway) reaches Exit 13B, Interstate 210 (Foothill Freeway) northwest to San Fernando and Interstate 5 and California 710/Long Beach Freeway Stub south to Del Mar Boulevard and California Boulevard. Through traffic for Interstate 210 east to San Bernardino and Redlands should stay left. Photos taken 12/20/09 and 01/28/06.
Now on the transition ramp, stay left for Interstate 210 west and right for California 710 south. Since California 710 has not been built between Pasadena and Alhambra, the stub freeway only connects to Del Mar Boulevard and California Boulevard. There is no freeway access currently to the Long Beach Freeway. Photo taken 01/28/06.
The transition ramp between eastbound California 134 (Ventura Freeway) and Interstate 210 (Foothill Freeway) northwest is the highest ramp in the 210-710-134 interchange. Photos taken 12/10/05.
Back on the mainline, California 134 carries four main lanes plus one HOV lane east through the Interstate 210 and California 710 interchange. Photo taken 12/20/09.
The final exit along California 134 (Ventura Freeway) east is Exit 13C, Fair Oaks Avenue and Marengo Avenue to Historic U.S. 66 (Colorado Boulevard) and downtown Pasadena. Photo taken 12/20/09.
An Interstate 210 east reassurance shield is posted shortly thereafter (at the on-ramp from Orange Grove Boulevard and Holly Street). This should be a California 134 east route marker since traffic from Interstate 210 (Foothill Freeway) east has not yet merged onto the 134 freeway. Photo taken 12/20/09.
California 134 (Ventura Freeway) approaches Exit 13C, Fair Oaks Avenue and Marengo Avenue to Historic U.S. 66 (Colorado Boulevard) and downtown Pasadena. Upon exiting, the off-ramp connects directly to Corson Street, which intersects with north-south Fair Oaks Avenue at a traffic signal. Turn right (south) to Old Pasadena and Historic U.S. 66 (Colorado Boulevard) (about four or five blocks south of the freeway). Photo taken 12/20/09.
The flyover ramp between California 134 east and Interstate 210 west crosses over the mainline freeway. Mt. Wilson, which is located in the San Gabriel Mountains, can be seen in the tall range behind this massive interchange. Radio and television transmitter towers are mounted on top of the mountain, which rises 5,710 feet and is home to an observatory as well. Access to Mt. Wilson is afforded via California 2 (Angeles Crest Highway). Photo taken 12/20/09.
Eastbound California 134 (Ventura Freeway) reaches Exit 13C, Fair Oaks Avenue and Marengo Avenue to Historic U.S. 66 (Colorado Boulevard) and downtown Pasadena. Photo taken 12/20/09.
After the off-ramp to Fair Oaks Avenue and Marengo Avenue, eastbound California 134 continues just a bit further before reaching Exit 13D, Interstate 210 east. The next off-ramp will be Exit 26 to Lake Avenue, which uses Interstate 210' exit numbering system. Ahead, traffic merges onto California 134 east from California 710 north. Photo taken 12/20/09.
The next two exits along is Exit 13D, Interstate 210 east (all traffic merges onto Interstate 210 (Foothill Freeway) east) and Exit 26, Lake Avenue (0.75 mile). Photo taken 12/20/09.
Use Exit 26, Lake Avenue north to the city of Altadena. Photo taken 12/20/09.
California 134 ends at this point, as traffic from Interstate 210 east merges from the right. From here, all lanes proceed east on Interstate 210 (Foothill Freeway) toward San Bernardino. The next three exits on Interstate 210 east are: Exit 26, Lake Avenue; Exit 27, Hill Avenue; and Exit 28, Altadena Drive. There is no end shield present for California 134. Photo taken 12/20/09.
