Old Highway 80 is aOld Highway 80 - Buckman Springs Bottling Plant California photo project by T.M. Schultze dedicated to the U.S. Route in California. From 1926 to 1964, U.S. Route 80 was the Broadway of America, stretching from San Diego, California to Tybee Island near Augusta, Georgia.

Old Highway 80 In California

When I moved to San Diego, I discovered this road and learned that much of the road still exists today, even after it was decommissioned officially in 1964 and gradually replaced with the Interstate 8 Freeway.

This is my attempt to photographically chronicle the California section of the old road and some of the best road-based landmarks as they exist today from it’s Western terminus in San Diego to it’s approach into Yuma, Arizona.
