Interstate 210 East - Interstate 5 to California 134


Interstate 210 east
Leaving the Interstate 5 (Golden State Freeway) interchange, this mileage sign provides the distance to the first three exits from eastbound Interstate 210 (Foothill Freeway): Exit 1, Yarnell Avenue; Exit 2, Roxford Street; and Exit 3, Polk Street. While the interchange between Interstate 5 and Interstate 210 was built in 1971 (after the Sylmar Earthquake), the route leading east toward Yarnell Stret was built in 1970. Photo taken 11/14/04.
The first Interstate 210 east reassurance shield is posted shortly thereafter. Following the Foothill Freeway, Interstate 210 will skirt the city of San Fernando, then proceed southeast toward Pasadena. At the California 134 and California 710 interchange, Interstate 210 will turn east to follow the U.S. 66 corridor east to Duarte, San Dimas, Rancho Cucamonga, and San Bernardino. Photo taken 11/14/04.
Eastbound Interstate 210 (Foothill Freeway) reaches Exit 1, Yarnell Avenue. This north-south street provides access to the residential areas in the city of Los Angeles in the community of Sylmar. Photo taken 11/14/04.
The next exit along Interstate 210 (Foothill Freeway) east is Exit 2, Roxford Street (one mile). Like Yarnell Street, Roxford Street serves the Los Angeles community of Sylmar. It travels northeast-southwest, ending at Interstate 5 Exit 159 and Sepulveda Boulevard near Los Angeles Reservoir. Use Roxford Street north to Olive View Drive to the Los Angeles County Olive View-UCLA Medical Center on the north side of the freeway. Interstate 210 from Roxford Street to Maclay Street was built in 1969. Photo taken 11/14/04.

Interstate 210 skirts the northwestern edge of the city of San Fernando, which is known as the "First City of the Valley" as it was the first to incorporate within the large San Fernando Valley. San Fernando had a population of 23,564 and was incorporated on August 31, 1911. Photo taken 11/14/04.
Eastbound Interstate 210 (Foothill Freeway) reaches Exit 5, Maclay Street to San Fernando. The city of San Fernando avoided being absorbed by the larger city of Los Angeles in the 1910s because it had its own groundwater supplies, which meant it did not need to turn to the city of Los Angeles for provision of water via its system of aqueducts. As the rest of the San Fernando Valley grew through the 20th Century, water became the key ingredient needed to develop the formerly agricultural valley. The city of Los Angeles annexed many of these areas as water needs for development increased. The city of San Fernando was named for the named for the nearby Mission San Fernando Rey de Espa-a. (Founded on September 8, 1797, the mission is actually located west of here, within the city of Los Angeles along San Fernando Mission Boulevard between Interstate 5 and Interstate 405 in the Mission Hills community. Follow Maclay Street west to Truman Street north to San Fernando Mission Boulevard west to the historic mission). Photo taken 11/14/04.
This mileage sign provides the distance to the next two exits along Interstate 210 (Foothill Freeway) east: Exit 6A, California 118 (Simi Valley / Ronald Reagan Freeway) west to Simi Valley and Exit 6B, Paxton Street.

Continuing east, Interstate 210 now parallels the old alignment of California 118 (Foothill Boulevard). California 118 was decommissioned in favor of Interstate 210 as the freeway was constructed to bypass Foothill Boulevard. California 118 used to extend southeast all the way to Pasadena, where it used to end at U.S. 66. With the completion of Interstate 210, the California 118 state route was truncated to end at Interstate 210 Exit 6A near San Fernando. To see some old state highway, travel Foothill Boulevard southeast toward Pasadena rather than the modern freeway. The next three exits along Interstate 210 (Foothill Freeway) are Exit 8, Osbourne Street and Foothill Boulevard (former California 118); Exit 9, Wheatland Avenue; and Exit 11, Sunland Boulevard. This section of freeway (California 118 to Sunland Boulevard) was built in 1980. Photo taken 11/14/04.
The aforementioned Southern California Edison power line crosses over Interstate 210 at this point. Again turning due east briefly, use Exit 8 for Osbourne Street north to Little Tujunga Road into Angeles National Forest and Foothill Boulevard/Osbourne Street southwest to Hansen Dam Park. Photo taken 11/14/04.

Interstate 210 approaches Exit 8, Osbourne Street to the Lake View Terrace district of the city of Los Angeles. Photo taken 11/14/04.
Mount Lukens (el. 5,074 feet) dominates the view looking east toward the San Gabriel Mountains. The Foothill Freeway will try to stay on the southern edge of the San Gabriel Mountains, and this causes the freeway to aim in a southeasterly directionbetween Sunland and La Canada Flintridge. Photo taken 11/14/04.
Eastbound Interstate 210 meets Exit 8, Osbourne Street. This exit serves Little Tujunga Canyon (via Osbourne Street and Little Tujunga Road north), the Lake View Terrace district, Hansen Dam Park, and Foothill Boulevard (old California 118). Photo taken 11/14/04.
Now the Southern California Edison power lines follow Interstate 210 on the south side of the freeway. Photo taken 11/14/04.

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.

The next exit along Interstate 210 (Foothill Freeway) is Exit 24, Mountain Street and Seco Street. The right lane becomes exit only for Exit 24. Space on this sign seems to allow for a state highway shield, although neither of these roads were state routes (as far as we know). Photo taken 11/14/04.
Eastbound Interstate 210 (Foothill Freeway) reaches Exit 24, Mountain Street and Seco Street. Ahead, Interstate 21 approaches the massive interchange with California 134 and California 710. The left two lanes connect to California 710 freeway south, which is a stub to Del Mar Boulevard and California Boulevard. The 710 freeway then ends, awaiting an eventual connection with the rest of Interstate 710 to the south with proposed construction of a tunnel under Pasadena and South Pasadena. Through traffic on Interstate 210 east or to California 134 west should stay right. Photo taken 11/14/04.
The next exit along Interstate 210 (Foothill Freeway) is Exit 25A, California 710 south to Historic U.S. 66 (Colorado Boulevard), Del Mar Boulevard, and California Boulevard to California 110 (Pasadena Freeway) (left exit).

Looking south from the left lane, extra capacity is waiting for eventual use once (if) the 710 connector is built between Interstate 210 and Interstate 10. Most traffic departs to the right here since the 710 freeway is not built. Photo taken 11/14/04.
Eastbound Interstate 210 reaches Exit 25A, California 710 south to Historic U.S. 66 (Colorado Boulevard), Del Mar Boulevard, and California Boulevard. Stay right to continue east on Interstate 210 and connect to California 134 west. Photo taken 11/14/04.

Eastbound Interstate 210 squeezes into this tunnel, which passes under the 134-210-710 interchange. The freeway will daylight briefly, then enter a second tunnel before returning to grade and merging with California 134 eastbound traffic. Photo taken 11/14/04.
Emerging from the tunnels, eastbound Interstate 210 returns to grade and prepares to merge with traffic from California 134 west (coming in from the left). Photo taken 11/14/04.
As California 134 east merges into Interstate 210 from the left, this mileage sign provides the distance to the next three exits on Interstate 210 east: Exit 26, Lake Avenue; Exit 27, Hill Avenue; and Exit 28, Altadena Drive. Photo taken 11/14/04.
