These routes are indicated as FAP (Federal Aid Primary), FAU (Federal Aid Urban), or FAS (Federal Aid Secondary). If no funding source is shown, no federal funds were used. Note that while some segments seem to have the same attributes, they may differ in the county-local road number assigned to the segment, or in the Caltrans Map Sheet number.]


Routing Routing

  1. Cty Rte G2 - Lawrence ExpwyQuito Road in Saratoga from Route 85 to Saratoga Ave, Road (FAU, 0.40 mi).

    Note: This appears to represent the portion of this segment that is within the City of Saratoga: the portion between Bailey and McCoy, and potentially the W side of Quito Road. County Sign Route G2 may also extend S of Route 85 to Route 9 (certainly, Google Maps shows this and it make sense logically), and all but a few bits are in the City of Saratoga (the portion S of Austin Way and right around Bicknell Road is in the City of Monte Sereno, the E side of the street from Bicknell Road to Pollard Road may be in Los Gatos, )

  2. Quito Road in San Jose from Route 85 to Saratoga Ave Road (FAU, 0.90 mi).

    Note: This appears to represent the portion of this segment that is within the City of San Jose: the E side (or potentially all of Quito Road) from Route 85 to Saratoga Ave except between Bailey and McCoy.

  3. Lawrence Expressway in Saratoga from Saratoga Road to Prospect Road (FAU, 0.25 mi). Note that some of this may be in San Jose.
