    I-8 (INTERSTATE  FREEWAY)  SAN  DIEGO - YUMA

    I drove a car to Campo from San Diego on the way to Yuma, Arizona. I drove Interstate Freeway 8 (I-8) which was old historic Highway US-80 in the past.

    US 80 was once a transcontinental highway that went from San Diego, California to Tybee Island, Georgia. In California it went from US 101 in San Diego to the Arizona Border at Yuma - exactly my itinery hehe.

    It is a road of historical note since it includes sections of the first paved road to connect San Diego with points east as well as containing the plank road that took motorists over the Algodones sand dunes east of El Centro as part of its route in 1926. US 80 remained for a longer time than many other California US highways, as it existed until 1974 when the final section of I-8 was completed.
    Almost all of it is still intact today, looking the same as it did when it still was the only highway heading east from San Diego.
