Garden Street turns onto Alcaniz Street at St. Michael"s Cemetery. U.S. 98 Business quickly approaches Chase Street where the route turns east to Ninth Avenue. Photo taken 07/15/07.
Chase Street passes over Alcaniz Street via an overpass as U.S. 98 Business utilizes a ramp to join the eastbound roadway at the southern terminus of Interstate 110. Drivers bound for the freeway northbound are directed back to the Chase Street on-ramp via Gregory Street west. Photo taken 07/15/07.
