Old US 101/CA 156 at San Juan Bautista Y

(1/1)

Max Rockatansky:
San Juan Bautista Y was once where US Route 101 and California State Route 156 intersected near the city of San Juan Bautista.  San Juan Bautista Y was constructed during 1935 as part of an extension of Legislative Route Number 22 west of San Juan Bautista to US Route 101 on the Prunedale Cutoff.  During 1938 California State Route 156 began to be signed at San Juan Bautista Y eastward towards Hollister.  The signature mission adobe walls, cross and campanile of San Juan Bautista Y were added to the junction also during 1938.  San Juan Bautista Y was bypassed upon the opening of the San Juan Interchange during June 1959.  San Juan Bautista Y has been preserved as something of an informal rest area.

On this subject - 156 really needs to be a freeway from 1 to Hollister. I think it's so strange that Hollister has no freeways given its size.

Presently being upgraded to a four lane expressway actually.  Ground broke between San Juan Bautista and Hollister already.
