G4 / San Tomas Expressway,
Montague Expressway, and Capitol Expressway Photos
These are from 6/6/2009, from 17 to
680, on an unusually pretty day. According to Wikipedia, San Tomas
Expressway was built around 1962 and Montague Expressway was built
around 1978. It was about forty minutes to drive both of them each
on a Saturday. I had never really done all of Montague Expressway
before, and it is closer to the hills than you might think. San
Expressway stops at Highway 17 but it was meant to turn into
Expressway by Almaden Expressway. They have had diamond lanes a
time, and because
of this these two expressways have been patrolled by overtime CHP
longer than the other county expressways out here.
My photos of Capitol Expressway are from 1/2013 and from 10/2008.
This is San Tomas Expressway North at Highway 17.
