|May 2014 (37.94917, -121.29806 Degrees) Route 5/4 Interchange|
The separators and connectors that make up this interchange were built in 1972, near the completion of the big Interstate Highway System in the U.S. Unfortunately, this was at the beginning of Caltrans' seismic design practice, resulting in thousands of previously built bridges that had to be retrofit.
Since Caltrans practice relies on balanced stiffness between members, some of these interchanges are particularly problematic to retrofit.
