This is just past the interchange with I5 North and I10 West.
US101 actually has had exit numbers for the first four miles or so of US101 for about 30 years. This was not a part of Caltrans' 2001 Exit number initiative. Interstate 5 south of 60 has had them too for a brief stretch.
This is approaching I10 East.
This is US101 by Mission Road from Trevor Carrier in 10/2010.
