Los Angeles-San Francisco no freeways

<< < (2/4) > >>

The Ghostbuster:
If one really wants a Los Angeles-to-San Francisco freeway, just make US 101 completely freeway between the two cities. Nothing else would need to be done.

I tried mapping directions with apple and google maps. Weird neither of them suggested CA-82 and Monterey Rd/St

A nice way to get from CA-154 in Los Olivos up to Santa Maria is Foxen Canyon Rd, especially in the spring with the wildflowers. You can get over the Cuyama River on CA-1, but there's also a sneaky way inland by taking Tepusquet Rd up to CA-166, which comes out on US-101 just north of the river. You can take the old US-101 alignment into Arroyo Grande, CA-227 into SLO, and Los Osos Rd up to Morro Bay. And it's possible to get onto CA-1 north of the last freeway interchange at CA-41 on surface streets.

If you go up CA-33, there are various ways to get across to CA-1, such as CA-58 and CA-46. You can also squeeze through on CA-198, Lockwood San Lucas Rd, Oasis Rd, San Lucas Rd, CR-G14 Jolon Rd down to Jolon, then take Nacimiento Fergusson Rd across the mountains (though it's temporarily closed last I checked). That's a great road, if you've never driven it.

This is right up my alley, because I do this often. I went from Pacific Palisades to Springville, UT in one day without getting on a freeway back in '06. Memorable ride.
