This segment of the Foothill Freeway is a part of former State Route 30. HOV lanes run along the freeway from San Dimas at SR-57 to San Bernardino at I-215. Initial segments of the freeway were opened in 1968 with the last segment in 1992, all as State Route 30.

In 1998, former State 30 was renumbered as Route 210. While initial signage for the “new” Foothill Freeway was for 30, it was never opened as such. All of the “new” freeway was opened as State Route 210. The first segment, at the I-15 and State 210 interchange, opened in 2001. Other segments opened a couple years later with the last segment opening, covering the gap between I-15 and I-215, in 2007.

Eventually, this route may be signed as an Interstate. When this will happen is still unknown.
