US 6 / US 395 Junction – Brady’s

Through the Mojave Desert

6_small Junction US 395 – Brady’s Junction

Separation structure built in 1993 to grade separate the SR-14/US 395 Junction. US 395 was also widened to a four-lane expressway at that time. Current US 395 is on a new alignment while the old alignment is now a frontage road to the west.

This is the north end of State Highway 14. North of here, US 395 follows old US 6. They were cosigned from 1937 until 1963 when US 6 was cut back to Bishop. This present junction was moved here from Brown Junction in 1957 as a part of a major realignment of US 395 south of here to the southern Ridgecrest junction.
