State 47 is mostly an industrial and port access roadway. It crosses onto Terminal Island in two places, one near San Pedro and the other heading north toward Wilmington. The Terminal Island Freeway portion was originally built in 1947 by the US Navy to upgrade access to the Port of Los Angeles / Long Beach and the Naval Shipyard. Later additions, such as the Vincent Thomas Bridge, were added in the 1960’s.
