The Bayshore highway between San Francisco and San Mateo opened in 1929 and reached Menlo Park in 1931. The two-lane highway became known for its bloody accidents. Photo courtesy Menlo Park Historical Association.

(Thanks to the poster below for the correction. The caption had originally referred to it as the Bayshore Freeway.)

Wrong again Almanac - It was the Bayshore HIGHWAY. The Bayshore FREEWAY which replaced the HIGHWAY was begun in the 1940's with the stretch from Peninsula Ave (Burlingame) to SoSF. The section thru Menlo Park wasn't finished until the mid to late 1950's.
