Interstate 238 West in California


This is a controversial route for road geeks because there is no Interstate 38. I238 was widened a bit in 1994, when BART was extended along its center divider. Most of these are from 4/10/2004. As of September 26, 2006 this section is being widened to six lanes. 238 was never finished as a freeway south of this location. It would have ended at I680 in Fremont. 238 from 580 to 880 became an interstate in 1985.

This is from 9/29/2004 and this is just past I580. 185 is the next exit.

This is taken just past I580.

This freeway is basically an off ramp linking two other freeways. It can be congested, even at off-peak hours.  BART runs down the center divide here.  

[I238 West]

Just past 185. This freeway has very few exits because it is so short. If the Southern Crossing bridge was built, this would lead to it.
