Bypassing Shandon

Bypass around Shandon for eastbound traffic on California 46

California 41 intersects with California 46 three miles east of this intersection, yet California 41 essentially parallels 46 for most of those three miles. Highway 41 goes through the small town of Shandon in San Luis Obispo County. Eastbound traffic on 46 can instead take a short county road to connect to 41 west of Shandon. That's also the route to Creston, though Creston itself is on another route, California 229.
