State Route 202 is a state highway in California, USA. It connects the California Correctional Institution to Route 58 in Tehachapi.

A portion of SR 202 is overlapped with SR 58 Bus. That portion follows the alignment of decommissioned U.S. Route 466.

Route description[edit]

The road begins with its western terminus at the California Correctional Institution along West Valley Boulevard, its name for part of the route. SR 202 then heads eastward through a farmland area before entering a suburb area of Tehachapi. The road then abruptly turns north toward SR 58 Bus where it heads concurrent with the business route through town to its eastern end at State Route 58 with an interchange.[2]

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.[3] The entire route is in Kern County.
