California Roads - CA 134
EB Exits 12 and 13A, to eventually be signed as such, taken from Colorado Blvd. (old US 66).
San Rafael Ave. and Orange Grove Blvd. NB at those same two exits, respectively. Notice how CA 134 EB is signed as I-210 EB when it's half a mile from ending, and yet California will continue to sign other routes in the same circumstance. I was once told that consistency is the hobgoblin of the feeble mind. In that case, Caltrans is frickin' genius.
Orange Grove Blvd. SB. To see the awesome tiny button copy CA 110, head up two blocks past Live Oaks Ave. The CA 110 panels on both signs were added later, maybe when I-710 failed to be finished through Pasadena, but this is the only place I've ever seen a green background shield with button copy instead of the traditional outline on the 134 below it. Also, "West" is being treated as a destination, which, in a way, it is, but it still should be entirely capitalized.
Holly St. EB at the same interchange. In this case, the entire sign was replaced, or else there had been no sign originally until after the decision was made to sign CA 110. By the way, isn't the button copy awesome out here?
Before I forget, this is the first sign on CA 134 WB as it leaves I-210. The sign on the right takes I-210 WB traffic to what was supposed to be I-710, but ends up being a mile-long one-lane stub freeway to California Blvd. Obviously, the sign was meant for much more information, probably CA 7 (the original route designation) to Long Beach.
The Arroyo Seco Bridge, carrying CA 134 over that river, seen from Arroyo Dr. and Arroyo Blvd. in the vicinity of Exit 13A. (See how I just can't stray from there?) If you think this is impressive, check out the Colorado Blvd. link below for the bridge just to the south (left in the first photo).
