The CHP and SMC Alert are both confused about Woodside Road. Woodside Road terminates where it intersects Portola Road and La Honda Rd at the point where Highway 84 begins to ascend toward Skylonda. From that intersection Highway 84 is La Honda Road.

So the highway 84 signs I see lining the road from San Gregorio to Woodside are wrong?

If you do a Google search for simply "Highway 84" you'll get a nice picture of the true Hwy 84, not someone's opinion.

Woodside Rd and La Honda Rd are both still Highway 84, much like Highway 82 is also called El Camino Real. What awatkins is saying is that Highway 84 is called Woodside Rd until the intersection at Portola Rd, where it then becomes La Honda Rd. The emergency services often incorrectly refer to that stretch of Highway 84 between Portola Rd and Skyline as Woodside Rd.

There are many reasons for serious crashes. Intoxication half the time. Let us know about this one.
