Interstate 280 connects San Jose with San Francisco while avoiding the crowded Bayshore Freeway corridor. While U.S. 101 (Bayshore Freeway) serves the suburbs between San Jose and San Francisco, Interstate 280 follows the San Andreas fault through a largely unpopulated area, providing a direct route between the two large cities. The freeway is designated the Sinclair Freeway from U.S. 101 northwest to Interstate 880, and it is designated the Father Junipero Serra Freeway from there north to the San Francisco city / county limits. The north end of Interstate 280 is located at AT&T Ballpark in San Francisco; the freeway does not extend the remaining four or five blocks to Interstate 80/Oakland-San Francisco Bay Bridge.
