Sierra Madre Boulevard
For the most part, it is a winding road divided by a grassy median, but the part between Pasadena and Arcadia is a two-lane road.
It was built around the Pacific Electric Railway—Sierra Madre interurban line. The smaller and older portion of the road was originally Central Avenue in Sierra Madre, built some time in the 1860s or 1870s. The road forms a "┌" shape, it continues in the south as San Marino Ave, and ends at Elevado Ave in the east.
