The 91 Freeway in Bellflower, California, is a significant node connecting the San Gabriel Valley to the Los Angeles Basin.
The east-west aligned Freeway passes through the cities of Bellflower, Norwalk, and Downey before merging with the 605 Freeway in Long Beach. Plus, the Freeway provides quick access to Los Angeles International Airport and the Long Beach Port.
The Artesia Freeway in southeastern Los Angeles County and northwestern Orange County stretches across its western terminus from the Long Beach Freeway in northern Long Beach to its eastern terminus at the Santa Ana Freeway in Buena Park.
A 16-mile stretch of the highway was also used for the cycling men’s road team time trial during the 1984 Olympics.
However, it is also one of the busiest routes in the city, where the rush hour records immense traffic. Although most people abide by the speed limit, the fast-paced lanes can lead to accidents. Several mishaps have been recorded within a span of a few months due to blind curves and changing lanes.
