Donner Pass Road (old US 40) featured in the opening scene of the movie Misery.  A new Toyota commercial is featuring Patterson Pass Road near Livermore, California.

The new EV Sierra Denali commercial featured Whitney Portal Road and Avenue of the Giants (CA 254).  I think the windmill road at the end was also Patterson Pass but Iím not 100% certain.

Spotted an old-fashioned reverse color square one-way sign in the George Burns-Brooke Shields movie "Just You and Me, Kid:"

Resident Evil: Apocalypse: There is a scene on a Toronto-area freeway (as parts of the movie were filmed there) where Umbrella Corp. SUVs were seen driving on, but I'm not exactly sure which one it is, as it doesn't exactly show signs or location, although one of the filming locations was on the Prince Edward Viaduct, indicating it may be the Don Valley Parkway.

In later seasons of the Original sitcom "One Day at a Time" you can see the sign for I-70 Indianapolis.

Former Legislative Route Number 127 on Main Street in Darwin, CA appears in Tremors.  Darwin is the film location used for the fictional Perfection, NV.

Train has CA-37 in the middle of the desert.


But the real CA-37 is on the northern edge of San Pablo Bay from Vallejo to Novato.

Darwin also turns up in the movie Highway 395, even though US 395 never went through it. I imagine it's there as "generic Eastern Sierra dusty place."
