ⓘ California State Route 180
State Route 180 is a state highway in the U.S. state of California. It runs through the heart of the San Joaquin Valley from State Route 33 in Mendota through Fresno, and then east towards the Sierra Nevada to Kings Canyon National Park.
The unbuilt segment of SR 180 is defined West to Paicines. Almost the entire 24-mile length of 39 km, from the river of the kings moving to cedar grove is eligible for the state scenic highway system, and nearly the entire route from Paicines to Cedar Grove is part of the California freeway and highway system. Two short segments of the trip to the national parks, so are not supported by the state and are exceptions to the above: a segment through the General Grant Grove of kings Canyon national Park and the far Eastern end of the road inside the national Park and kings Canyon. Highway through Fresno has the distinction of having the most heavily traveled stretch of road in the valley of San Joaquin. Major plans include the extension West from Mendota to interstate 5.
