California County Routes in zone G
There are 21 routes assigned to the "G" zone of the California Route Marker Program, which designates county routes in California. The "G" zone includes county highways in Monterey, San Benito, San Luis Obispo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz counties. County Route G1 is a road providing access to Fremont Peak State Park. G1 is signed as San Juan Canyon Road for the entire length except for a small portion of The Alameda and Salinas Road. From the southern end of G1 on Fremont Peak as San Juan Canyon Road, G1 begins a steep, sharp-curved winding descent from around 3,000 feet for the first 2 miles, north to northeast. G1 curves to the west for about 2 miles before turning north. At the intersection of Mission Vineyard Road, G1 becomes The Alameda, which heads north for 1/4 mile before reaching the northern terminus at State Route 156. Beyond the northern terminus, The Alameda continues into downtown San Juan Bautista for 0.2 miles until the intersection of First Street. County Route G2, more known as Lawrence Expressway and Quito Road, is a busy 9.7-mile long north–south link through Silicon Valley in Northern California.
The majority of G2 is part of the Santa Clara County Expressway System. G2 runs from the Quito Road overcrossing of SR 85 in Saratoga, north along Quito Road. G2 is not signed along this section and is not recognized as existing along this 2 lane road by either locals or mapmakers; the Quito Road portion is maintained by the City of Saratoga rather than Santa Clara County. As the road leaves Saratoga and enters San Jose, it widens to a 6 lane county-maintained expressway with a concrete island divider; the Lawrence Expressway section from just south of Saratoga Avenue is more recognized as G2. Local residents exclusively refer to G2 as Lawrence Expressway; the road continues north, with access restricted to major intersections which are controlled via traffic lights. Lawrence Expressway continues northeasterly and junctions with I-280 and Stevens Creek Boulevard over a complex shared separated grade crossing. Lawrence proceeds under I-280 before rising over Stevens Creek. Lawrence Expressway and Stevens Creek share ramps for access to I-280 with the exception of the onramp to Southbound I-280, accessed directly from Lawrence Expressway, a frequent cause of confusion for drivers on Stevens Creek wishing to access I-280 due to unclear signage.
Lawrence Expressway continues north into Santa Clara and widens to 8 lanes with an HOV lane occupying the far right lane. Lawrence Expressway has another separated grade interchange with El Camino Real with Lawrence Expressway passing over El Camino Real just prior to Lawrence Expressway entering Sunnyvale. Lawrence Expressway passes under Central Expressway on a separated grade interchange and over US 101 on a separated grade interchange; the US 101 interchange was upgraded in the early 2000s to include traffic light control on G2. G2 reaches its northern terminus at the end of Lawrence Expressway at the SR 237 Freeway; the physical road continues north as Caribbean Drive. The designation G2 existed to the 1950s; the route replaced what was called Lawrence Station Road, from Mountain View-Alviso Road in the north to Stevens Creek Blvd. on the south paralleling Saratoga Creek. Crossing Stevens Creek, the route was called Doyle Road, a small two lane road up to the point the current Doyle Road exits to the east.
The section between Doyle and Saratoga Avenue at Quito Road was orchards. G2 was first signed as a Santa Clara County Route in 1962 as construction was completing on sections of the upgrade to an expressway. County Route G2 was planned to link up with SR 85 when it was built. At the time of G2's inception SR 85 was in the early planning stages and an interchange had been envisioned at Quito Road; however opposition to the freeway was intense in Saratoga and the planned interchange between SR 85 and G2 along with an interchange further north at Prospect Road were abandoned in favor of the existing Saratoga Avenue interchange. G2 is unsigned from SR 85 to Saratoga Avenue along Quito Road. North of Saratoga Avenue Lawrence Expressway is signed as G2. In the 1990s Lawrence Expressway was widened north of I-280 to 8 lanes to accommodate an HOV carpool lane; the section of Quito Road between Bucknall Road and Saratoga Avenue in Saratoga is slated for expansion to 3 lanes in the fall of 2006. The entire route is in Santa Clara County.
County Route G3, more known as Page Mill Road and Oregon Expressway is a short 4.5-mile northeast-southwest arterial route that spans the lower peninsula region of the San Francisco Bay Area from I-280 to US 101. G3 runs through Palo Alto, unincorporated Stanford University lands, the northwest corner of Los Altos Hills, it is part of the Santa Clara County Expressway System. G3 begins in the west at its interchange with I-280 in Los Altos Hills just south of Stanford University, it proceeds northeast as a four lane expressway over the rolling hills of Stanford University until it reaches Foothill Expressway with which it shares an at-grade intersection. East of Foothill Expressway, G3 descends down into the more urban areas of the lower peninsula going through the industrialized area of the Stanford Research Park located in Palo Alto; the road along this section has a reduced speed limit and several turnoffs along its length until it reaches El Camino Real. After SR 82, Oregon Expressway branches from Page Mill Road, which becomes a short two-lane street, G3 follows Oregon Expressway under Caltrain tracks and onward for the remainder of its northeastward journey.
U.S. Route 50 in Colorado
U. S. Route 50 is a part of the U. S. Highway System that travels from California, to Ocean City, Maryland. In the U. S. state of Colorado, US 50 is a major highway crossing through the lower midsection of the state. It connects the Western Slope with the Arkansas Valley; the highway serves the areas of Pueblo and Grand Junction as well as many other smaller areas along its corridor. The long term project to upgrade the highway from two lanes to a four lane expressway between Grand Junction and Montrose was completed in January 2005. Only about 25% of the remainder of highway 50 in Colorado is four lane expressway. U. S. Highway 50 begins in Colorado at the Utah state line, concurrent with Interstate 70 as well as U. S. Highway 6. At Interstate 70 exit 11, U. S. Highway 6 & 50 end their concurrency with Interstate 70 and begin using the old highway alignment directly north of Interstate 70 while they travel through the communities of Mack and Fruita; these communities were bypassed by Interstate 70.
Near mile marker 15 the Colorado River runs nearby for the next 16 miles. In Fruita routes 6 and 50 intersect State Highway 340, the gateway to the Colorado National Monument; the monument's sandstone canyons and rock spires are visible to the south from the highways. U. S. Highway 6 & 50 meet again with Interstate 70 at exit 26 where they begin a concurrent segment with Interstate 70 Business; the three routes travel southeast towards downtown Grand Junction. Grand Junction is the home of Colorado Mesa University. U. S. Highway 6 ends it concurrency with U. S. Highway 50 and Interstate 70 Business with a free flowing, grade separated interchange at North Avenue; the two remaining routes continue south onto surface streets in downtown Grand Junction. At Grand Avenue, they once again intersect with Colorado 340, which forms a loop between Grand Junction and Fruita. There are several points of access to the Colorado National Monument from the highway 340 loop. After turning onto two east–west one-way streets.
S. Highway 50 detaches itself from Interstate 70 Business, crosses the Colorado River and travels as an expressway, though suburban Grand Junction, to the cities of Delta and Montrose. Leaving Grand Junction and the area known as Orchard Mesa, the highway descends into the community of Whitewater and the Gunnison River valley, it intersects with State Highway 141 and begins a short concurrency with highway 141. Near this intersection Mount Sneffels and the Sneffels Range of the San Juan Mountains are visible 80 miles to the south-southeast; as it follows the Gunnison River valley in a southeasterly direction, it is bounded on the east by Grand Mesa, which rises to over 11,000 feet and on the west by the Uncompahgre Plateau, averaging 9,500 feet and rising to 10,300 feet. U. S. Highway 50 travels through Delta as a typical surface street, having junctions with State Highway 92 and State Highway 348. Highway 50 heads towards Montrose in the Uncompahgre River valley, passing through Olathe as an expressway bypass.
Olathe is the home of a popular annual sweet corn festival. Agriculture in the area is enhanced by irrigation water supplied by reservoirs on the Gunnison River. U. S 50 arrives in Montrose on Townsend Ave; the route junctions with U. S. Highway 550 and turns east onto the San Juan Avenue bypass and onto Main St. heading eastward out of Montrose. The highway is a four-lane expressway from the Utah border to the eastern boundary of Montrose except for surface streets in the towns of Grand Junction and Montrose. From Montrose east to the Kansas border it is a two-lane highway with only short stretches of four-lane highway; the upgrade of the last segment of highway between Utah and Montrose was completed in January 2005. The first 94 miles of route 50 is four-lane highway. Of the remaining 375 miles, only about 90 miles had been upgraded to four lanes as of 2012 around larger towns. About ten miles east of Montrose, the highway intersects SH 347; this 5.2-mile-long highway provides access to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park.
Highway 50 passes over Cerro Summit, about 8,000 feet, descends to the small community of Cimarron on the Cimarron River and ascends again to the Blue Mesa Summit, 8,850 feet before dropping into Blue Creek Canyon. 3 miles north of the stream crossing, where Blue Creek empties into the Gunnison River, is the Curecanti Needle, a striking rock formation, the symbol of the now defunct Denver & Rio Grande Western Railroad. The needle is now accessible only by boat since the abandoned railroad line was flooded by Morrow Point Lake, formed by the completion of the Crystal Dam in 1976. U. S. Highway 50 rises again over a third low pass before reaching State Highway 92. A short distance north of the intersection, highway 92 crosses the Blue Mesa Dam which forms Blue Mesa Reservoir, the largest body of water in the state of Colorado. Highway 50 crosses the reservoir at Middle Bridge, intersects State Highway 149 near the east end of the reservoir and continues into the town of Gunnison, home of Western State College of Colorado.
East of Gunnison the highway intersects with State Highway 114, passes through the communities of Parlin and Sargents and ascends to Monarch Pass on the continental divide. Monarch Pass is the highest point on the entire length of U. S. 50. After descending from Monarch Pass, the highway enters the Arkansas River Valley near the town of Salida; the headwaters of the Arkansas are about 50 miles north in Climax. The Arkansas is the second-longest tribut

The "J" zone includes county highways in Alameda, Contra Costa, Kern, Mariposa, Sacramento, San Benito, San Joaquin and Tulare counties. County Route J1 is a county road in San Fresno counties; the route begins in Paicines, San Benito County, at State Route 25. Between Paicines and Panoche Valley, J1 is known as Panoche Road, its north–south portion between Panoche Valley and Fresno County is called Little Panoche Road. In Fresno County, the route intersects with Interstate 5 and terminates in Mendota at State Route 33 near State Route 180 in the Central Valley. East of Interstate 5, the alignment of J1 follows Fresno County's West Shields Avenue. Shields Avenue ends at North Fairfax Avenue. J1 continues south 2 miles on Fairfax Avenue to West Belmont Avenue, at which location J1 proceeds east on Belmont Avenue until its end at State Routes 33 and 180. Panoche Road lies within the corridor of an unbuilt Route 180 segment.
No current plan exists to extend Route 180 westward from Mendota past Interstate 5 and into San Benito County. Parts of J1 just west of I-5 are gravel rather than paved. County Route J2 is a series of streets and roads in the California counties of Alameda and San Joaquin. J2 begins at Interstate 580's interchange with Portola Avenue in Livermore; the route follows Portola to Livermore Avenue, where J2 turns southward to pass through Livermore's downtown. The highway continues past the southeast edge of Livermore to become Tesla Road and rise into the Diablo Range, which separates the outer San Francisco Bay Area from the San Joaquin Valley. At the Alameda-San Joaquin county line, J2 becomes Corral Hollow Road and enters the narrow valley of the same name. Upon approaching the San Joaquin Valley, the road turns northward, meeting Interstate 580 again and arriving at the southern subdivisions of Tracy. After passing through this city, the road intersects Interstate 205, shifts onto Lammers Road, soon turns northward onto Tracy Boulevard.

County Route J3 is a county road in central California that runs 35 miles north-south through Stanislaus and San Joaquin Counties; the route begins 2 miles east of Vernalis as Kasson Road, running northward from the road's intersection with State Route 132. After 3 miles the route meets Airport Way and follows it northward 21 miles past Manteca and French Camp into Stockton. J3 follows West Lane 10 miles out from Stockton and becomes Hutchins Street for the route's last 1 mile; the route reaches its northern end at State Route 12 near Lodi. The highway is known as Stanislaus County Route J3 and San Joaquin County Route J3, though all but 1 mile of the route is within San Joaquin County. County Route J4 is a county road in central California that runs 28 miles nominally north–south across portions of San Joaquin County, Alameda County and Contra Costa County that are growing in population and suburbanization.

New Zealand State Highway 18
State Highway 18 is a state highway that runs between the Auckland Northern Motorway on the North Shore and the Northwestern Motorway in Waitakere in Auckland, New Zealand. The Upper Harbour Motorway forms most of its length as of 2016. SH 18 forms the northern part of the Western Ring Route, which continues from Waitakere south-east to Manukau. SH 18 begins at the Auckland Northern Motorway, as a dual carriageway road, heading west on Upper Harbour Highway, after two kilometres becoming a motorway at the Albany Highway interchange; this four-lane section of motorway opened in December 2007, bypassed the single carriageway Upper Harbour Drive. The motorway heads south-west, crossing the upper reaches of the Waitematā Harbour over the Upper Harbour Bridge. At Squadron Drive, the highway extends onto a new section of motorway, which opened in August 2011, bypassing Hobsonville Road; this road cuts across in a southwestern direction across farmland to Westgate, where it turns southward and merges with the Northwestern Motorway southbound.
Motorists wishing to travel north onto SH 16 can cut across by taking the Brigham Creek Road or Trig Road exits. SH 18 ran along the Coatesville Riverhead Highway, further north than its current position; this route is now designated as Auckland Urban Route 28. The route of the new motorway from Upper Harbour Bridge to Westgate was to receive a cycleway as well, but although the land was set aside, there is no timetable for the construction of the route.
