Highway 160

Highway 160 is a two-lane highway that stretches from Sacramento County to Contra Costa County. The highway is commonly used among commuters as an alternate route for traveling to the East Bay from Sacramento. However, the highway may not be safe to all motorists due to frequent potholes forming along the roadway and lack of a center divider and guardrails. It is best for all drivers to exercise additional caution while traveling along two-lane roadways in order to be able to react quickly and avoid vehicular accidents.
