Cochrane Road West in Morgan Hill (former US101)
Three of these photos are from March 3, 2008 and one is from
June 6, 2009. This part of
Cochrane Road hasn't had a US101 sign on it in 20 years. It has been
planned to be widened. It did carry US101 traffic from 1973 to 1985,
and at night off and on when US101 or 85 were being worked on. This has
been built up more since it stopped being US101, but it has not been
widened much. The US101 signs were gone by 1988. The Capri Restaurant will be
demolished in 2015.
This is right over US101. Two lanes used to exit off US101 North here,
the pavement of the freeway changes to asphalt at the exit.
This is just before Sutter, which had just a stop sign in the 1980s.
This is from 6/6/2009, and this was an unusually pretty day.
This is at Monterey Highway. Cochrane Road is only one mile long from
US101 to this point. Two lanes used to turn onto Monterey Highway North
This is at Monterey Highway on 2/19/2009.
