Mt. Diablo Blvd. at Main St.

— Early 1950s —

The 1951 opening of Broadway Shopping Center led to almost daily gridlock at Main and Mt. Diablo, streets that were also part of two state highways. Local officials used photos to "plead their case" for traffic relief. The freeway to bypass downtown opened in 1960.
