Orange Crush interchange
The interchange is comprised of five freeway segments (i.e. there are five freeway 'paths' of travel into the complex) of three major highways:
Significant construction funded by Measure M in the early 2000s has greatly improved the efficiency and safety of motorists transiting the interchange. During this reconstruction, most of the transitions were re-aligned and/or widened. Prior to its reconstruction, driving through was challenging and, combined with heavy traffic volume, resulted in frustrating traffic congestion, hence the name "Orange Crush".
