Subject: SoCal Freeway Names

As Aaron rews pointed out, the 91 freeway changes names three times in its

travel through Orange and Losa Angeles Counties: the Riverside Freeway, the

Artesia Freeway, and the Redondo Beach Freeway. It is much easier to tell

somebody to take the 91 to the end, than to tell them to take the Riverside

Freeway to the Artesia Freeway, and continue on to the Redondo Beach Freeway,


Interstate 5 also changed names through Orange and LA counties: in the south,

it it the San Diego Freeway, then the Santa Ana Freeway, then the Golden

State Freeway in the north (of LA).

The Santa Monica Freeway is Interstate 405 for part of the way (a north/south)

freeway) and it is also Interstate 10 for part of the way (an east/west


To use the names of the freeways, here in Southern California, would be too

confusing -- I can say much about the bay area (San Francisco area).

fingertips are numb. I think my keyboard is numb, too. (Yes, we DO get

snow in some parts of Sunny Southern California.)
