It's More than a Junction

Advance sign for the Interstate 580/California 24 interchange in Oakland

A mile ahead is the interchange, the so-called "mini-maze", where California 24 meets Interstate 580 and Interstate 980. So calling it a "junction" seems to be a big understatement.

The sign, making use of button reflectors, was photographed during a hazy day in May 2009. A close-up view shows the button reflectors more clearly.
