Interstate 505 Highway Guides

Originally incorporated in the Interstate 5W loop west from the Central Valley to Oakland in 1964, initial construction for Interstate 505 took place at the south end with Interstate 80 in 1968. Most of the freeway in Solano County was built in 1974. The Yolo County portion of I-505 was constructed as a two lane highway in 1959, with expansion to four lanes in 1980.

The northern section of Interstate 505 traverses a remote area across the Dunnigan Hills. Photo taken 03/31/05.
