A Numerically Unpopular Freeway

I-238 Freeway Entrance

I-238, which is actually the continuation of a state route from Hayward into San Lorenzo, is much derided not just for its tendency to be a traffic bottleneck, but also for its unusual numbering. There is no "Interstate 38", in California or in any other state.

This entrance is on Hesperian Boulevard just inside San Lorenzo. North Interstate 238 really is headed in a west-northwesterly direction.
