The 605 ends at the 405 Freeway.  The 405 is the San Diego Freeway, paralleling Interstate 5 through the western Los Angeles suburbs.  Click here for Interstate 405 Images.

Exit signage heading north along the 605 Freeway for Katella Avenue and Willow Street.  Katella Avenue and Willow Street is the first exit northbound along the 605 Freeway.  The northbound carpool lane also begins in this photo.  Starting in 2010, Caltrans will commence construction of a direct link between the carpool lanes on the 22 and 405 freeways to the carpool lane that starts here on the 605 freeway.  This will make an already large and complex I-405/I-605/CA-22 interchange even more massive.

Travel time sign northbound after the Katella Avenue and Willow Street interchange.  From this point in the freeway it is just over 20 Miles to the 10 freeway; so, this sign indicates that the 605 is moving congestion free for most of its length.

Pull through signage at the Highway 91 interchange.  Take notice of the fact that the interchange with the Century Freeway (Interstate 105) is also indicated on the pull through signage.  The Century Freeway is the next major east-west highway through Los Angeles, and as the sign indicates, is only two miles north of the 91 Freeway.

Exit signage for the Century Freeway (I-105) from the northbound 605 Freeway.  The reference to Imperial Highway on the pull-through signage is obviously a retrofit.  The ramp for the Imperial Highway departs the 605 Freeway shortly after this interchange.

Button copy advanced signage for the Interstate 5 Freeway interchange.  The 605 Freeway serves as an important link between The 105 and 5 Freeways.  The 105 Freeway ends at the 605 Freeway about 2 Miles west of The Santa Ana Freeway (Interstate 5).  There is no easy way to link the 105 and 5 Freeways without destroying a good chunk of the City of Norwalk.

Another next exit sign, this time approaching the Peck Road interchange.  This sign is interesting since the California Highway 60 sign was obviously added to the sign after it was installed.  During the early days of the freeway era in Los Angeles, freeways were often just designated by a name, not by a number.

Pull-through signage at the San Bernardino Freeway interchange.  The 605 Freeway meets the 10 at a rather under-designed modified half cloverleaf design.  The San Bernardino Freeway (I-10) is one of the older freeways in Los Angeles County, and its interchange design certainly reflects the freeway's age.
