Do you know the way to San Jose? What about when the State of California has been closing the main pass out of Los Angeles to the north due to severe and fast moving winter storms? What’s the best way to the Bay area then? Well, I can tell you, there is no way of knowing if it is better to detour and take the US-101 through Oxnard to avoid the Tejon / Grapevine Pass or go straight on through traveling the I-5 Freeway and take a chance on the State closing the road – in which case you may have to sit for hours in traffic or be forced to take another detour in the wrong direction, such as through Lancaster. This is a frustrating dilemma to the motorist.
