Carmel Valley Road west
West of Interstate 5, Carmel Valley Road travels west as a two-lane highway along the northern edge of Los Peñasquitos Lagoon through the Del Mar Terrace neighborhood.

Even with scaffolding and supports added to the bridge, it still retains its old-school charm. See the U.S. 101 page for closer views of this significant, historic bridge. Photo taken 09/01/12.
Carmel Valley Road scenes
A spur road linking Carmel Valley Road to one of the Torrey Pines State Reserve' parking lots, McGonigle Road travels south from Carmel Valley Road to pass under the railroad tracks. A Coaster emblem was pasted onto the bridge, probably to cover up an older emblem or designation previously found on this bridge. Photo taken 09/01/12.
