Runs from SR-126 in Saticoy to I-210 near San Fernando

State 118 begins as a four lane conventional highway at the Santa Paula Freeway (126) in Saticoy. Soon after crossing the Santa Clara River, the road narrows to two-lanes. 118 remains as a two-lane road until Moorpark where it widens to four lanes. After passing through Moorpark, State 118 gets onto a freeway which then heads east to I-210. The freeway was completed in 1993. Other segments were built from 1968 to 1980. HOV lanes run from Rocky Peak Road to I-5.
