As we pass under SR 121, we’re told to use US-101 to get to the ocean.

3.25 miles to JCT US-101, the JCT sign being kind of odd on an interstate highway, as is the 3 1/4. I would guess this is a carryover sign from US-99 that somehow got on the replacement cycle, but I have no idea. It’s kind of weird though. Regardless, it’s gone as of 2015, to be replaced with the more normal sign below.

US-101 will exit in 3/4 of a mile, head up, around, and then back south. It’s officially US-101 “south” right here, but the north is because it is heading north for about 100 miles. But really, south.
