Location #15

This stretch of the old alignment is located just north of the northbound freeway off-ramp to Jolon Rd.. It was abandoned in 1957 when the work was done on the bridges, and the Greenfield-King City expressway was completed. I found many references in the archives of the King City Rustler of a sharp curve in the road just after crossing the bridge leaving King City northbound before 1957. One of the goals in completing the project was to eliminate this dangerous curve.
