San Fernando

1953 USGS map showing San Fernando and the one-way couplet configuration

San Fernando is a small city that was founded in 1874 and is the oldest city in the San Fernando Valley. US 99 followed San Fernando Road through town until 1950, when it was split into two one-way roadways. Truman St carried northbound traffic and San Fernando Road carried southbound traffic. This split lasted until 1964 when the two roadways were returned to two-way traffic after I-5 bypassed this segment.
