State Route 109 (SR 109) is a short, unsigned state highway in the U.S. state of California. It is the portion of University Avenue that runs between U.S. Route 101 and State Route 84 in East Palo Alto and Menlo Park. The route is unsigned; however, it is noted on some online maps.

Route description[edit]

SR 109 begins at U.S. Route 101 in East Palo Alto. It continues north, paralleling the city border with Menlo Park before entering Menlo Park and crossing a railroad. SR 109 passes by salt evaporators before terminating at SR 84 just west of the Dumbarton Bridge.[1]

History[edit]

In April 1958, I-109 was proposed as a name for the route that is now Interstate 280. This proposal was rejected by AASHTO.[2] The route was first defined as a California State Route in 1963 from Sunset Cliffs Boulevard to Interstate 5 in San Diego. In 1972 this route was deleted and was redefined in 1984 as a route in Palo Alto.

Major intersections[edit]

Except where prefixed with a letter, postmiles were measured on the road as it was in 1964, and do not necessarily reflect current mileage. R reflects a realignment in the route since then, and T indicates postmiles classified as temporary.[2] The entire route is in Menlo Park, San Mateo County.
