Complex advance sign for Interstate 580 and California 24 at Interstate 80 in Oakland

For traffic eastbound off the Bay Bridge in Oakland, this sign jams a description of the route to California 24 into a small space. While the route to California 24 requires traveling a short distance on Interstate 580, what isn't indicated is that Highway 24 won't take you to downtown Oakland from here. For that, you'd have to use Interstate 980.
