Presidio Park Perspective

Interstate 5 at Interstate 8 with former California 209, seen from Presidio Park in San Diego

This view of westbound Interstate 8 is from Presidio Park, a high spot overlooking the Interstate 5 and Interstate 8 interchange. A sign for California 209 is also on this assembly, even though that route has actually been decomissioned. The date for the removal of Highway 209 from the California state highway system is variously given as 2001 or 2003. Still, quite a few signs referring to the route were still in San Diego in November 2007, when this photo was taken.
