Historical Tour of old US 6 / US 99
Jct. US 66 / SR-11 – Figueroa Street and Ave 26
Here at the the intersection of Avenue 26 and Figueroa Street in Los Angeles, US 99 met US 66 and SR-11. After 1936, US 99 made a turn south onto Figueroa Street to head into downtown Los Angeles via the newly completed tunnels on the Figueroa Street Extension. US 99 continued to make that turn until 1962, when the Golden State Freeway bypassed this section from Broadway to the Hyperion Viaduct.
