Arroyo Seco Parkway (SR-110) Scenic Byway
The beautiful and historic Arroyo Seco Parkway, also known as the Pasadena Freeway (State Route 110), marked an important transitional moment in the history of American freeway engineering and transportation. It has the distinction of being the first freeway - a grade-separated, limited-access, high-speed divided road - in the western United States. Termed an "engineering marvel," it was the initial stretch of road for what would become the world-renowned Los Angeles metropolitan area freeway system.
Dedicated on December 30, 1940, and built in three major stages, the 8.2-mile Parkway was conceived in the parkway tradition, with gentle curves and lush landscaping - envisioned both as a scenic pleasure road and a vital traffic artery linking the growing cities of Pasadena and Los Angeles. Incorporating modern elements that would lay the groundwork for the California freeway system, the Parkway became a prototype for urban freeways throughout the United States and the rest of the world - paving the way for more than 4,000 miles of California freeways that have come after it.
