ⓘ Cabrillo Freeway

State Route 163, also known as the Cabrillo Freeway, is a state highway in San Diego, California. The 11.088-mile stretch of the former US 395 freeway runs from Downtown San Diego just south of an interchange with Interstate 5, extending north through historic Balboa Park and various neighborhoods of San Diego to an interchange with I-15 in the neighborhood of Miramar. The freeway is named after Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, the first European to navigate the coast of present-day California.

In the historic highway through Balboa Park South of I-8 was the first highway in the County of San Diego and one of the first in California. Until 1964, it was the southern stretch of highway 395 U.S., which was reduced to Hesperia when he was replaced by I-15. This section is also designated as a state scenic road.
