This is the end of the part of 85 built by San José. This section has concrete pavement and stereotypical Caltrans signs. It is built below the ground level of surrounding neighborhoods (for less noise pollution.) At first this section had a narrow, dirt strip divider which wasn't enough for the fast drivers 85 had at first. Before Silicon Valley boomed in 1998 and traffic got very bad, this was a race track of sorts. 85 North from here to about Camden has an irregular ride that makes you wonder if something is wrong with your car.
