Los Angeles County

City of Santa Monica

Button-copy signs situated overtop of the westbound exit ramp to 4th Avenue and 5th Avenue in Santa Monica.  This is the western-most interchange along Interstate 10,  Beyond this, Interstate 10 ends, becoming the Pacific Coast Highway -- heading north towards Malibu.

Advanced signage for the interchange to Interstate 405.  The eastbound pull-through signage for Interstate 10 indicates the control city as Los Angeles.  I find this somewhat odd, as while technically Interstate 10 begins in Santa Monica, for all intents and purposes the western terminus of Interstate 10 is Los Angeles.

Westerly view as the 10 Freeway passes underneath of the Interstate 215 interchange in San Bernardino.  Massive interchanges are a dime a dozen in Southern California.  Aside from maybe Texas, no other freeway network in the world rivals that of Southern California's.

Button-copy signage at the ramp to Interstate 215 from Interstate 10 Westbound.  Note the on-ramp beside to the right of the jersey barrier.  The westbound on-ramp from Waterman Avenue only serves Interstate 215-bound travelers, despite the fact that it runs parallel to Interstate 10 for a few hundred metres.

Westerly shot as Highway 60 departs Interstate 10 bound for Riverside.  As evidence by the old US-route 60 shield that is poking out from either side of the Highway 60 overlay, Highway 60 was once US-60.  US-60 followed what is now the Moreno Valley Freeway towards Riverside, and eventually to the East Los Angeles Interchange, while US-70, and US-99 continued on what is today's Interstate 10 alignment.

Westbound diagram sign for the Highway 60 split.  This diagram sign is button-copy.  Button copy diagram signs were kept very simple as it was simply uneconomical to stock fancy a variety of fancy arrowboards to delineate different interchange designs.

Pass-through signage in advance of the Highway 60 interchange.  The left-most lane defaults from Interstate 10 to Highway 60-West at this interchange.  Beyond Highway 60 at Beaumont, Interstate 10 is a six lane freeway westerly into Redlands.

An advanced sign for Highway 111 affixed to the Haugen Leman Way overpass.  I have included a shot that shows the general lay of the land approaching the Highway 111 interchange as well as a close up of the button copy sign to highlight the detail that went into making every button copy sign that stands along any highway in the United States.

The ramp to Highway 111.  Highway 111 runs into Palm Springs, and various desert communities before it too ends up in Indio.  While Highway 111 runs generally parallel to the 10 Freeway, it is a considerably longer route than the freeway.

First advanced signage for the Highway 86S Expressway interchange affixed to the Jackson Street overpass.  It is common for CalTrans to place a reassurance marker alongside an advanced sign for a major junction.  I don't understand this practice.

Signage for the ramp to Golf Centre Road.  As far as I can tell, Golf Centre Road is not actually part of Highway 111, rather is a connector route that links the interstate with the highway.  Highway 111 has been chopped up over the past few years as CalTrans relinquishes control of the urban sections of highway through the various desert cities.  (Sound familiar?).

Eastbound signage for the ramp to Highway 86S Expressway.  Highway 86S links Interstate 10 to Highway 86 near Salton City.  Historically Highway 86 followed a more circuitous alignment beginning in Downtown Coachella, and running through Sandy Korner and 100 Palms before becoming a four lane highway to the west of the Salton Sea.

Eastbound signage at the exit to Highway 86S Expressway.  Highway 86S Expressway leads south-easterly along the west bank of the Salton Sea towards Brawley, El Centro and the Mexican Border.  Interstate 10 leads easterly towards Blythe and Arizona.  Just beyond the ramp to Highway 86S Expressway, Interstate 10's right most lane ends -- I-10 is a four lane freeway easterly into the Phoenix Metro area of Arizona from this interchange on.
