Historical Tour of old US 99
Pico Canyon Road / Lyons Avenue
This section of US 99 was opened with three lanes in 1930. It was under construction through this area as early as 1928. In 1949, this segment of 99 was widened to a four lane expressway. I-5 has since paved over most of the alignment of 99 through here. Only a few culverts remain from that old highway.
