A.K.A.: Harbor Freeway into the Pasadena Freeway
Route: San Pedro to downtown L.A., four level interchange to Pasadena
Meet the grandfather of California freeways. Literally. It' the oldest freeway in the state, having been largely completed in the 1960s. It has a bit of everything: gridlock, crazy drivers, speedsters and police chases. It's the epitome of the classic Los Angeles Freeway: the one we love to hate.
