}} The Foothill Freeway is the name assigned to Interstate 210 (abbreviated I-210), a 'bypass' interstate about 70 miles (110 km) long located in the Greater Los Angeles metropolitan area. Bypassing central Los Angeles via a generally west to east alignment, this freeway links many of the suburban cities and communities that surround Los Angeles to its north and east.

As its name implies, its alignment is along the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains. The freeway is not complete; there is currently a 10-mile (16 km) gap in San Bernardino County. After a lengthy hiatus, construction on the segment of the freeway between its junction with the Orange Freeway (State Route 57) in San Dimas and the Ontario Freeway (I-15) in Rancho Cucamonga was finally completed in late 2003, although that portion is presently signed as CA-210 rather than I-210. At this time, construction of the segment between Alder Avenue in Rialto and the Escondido (I-215) freeway in San Bernardino is ongoing and is expected to be completed by 2007. When completed, the freeway will provide another link between the communities of the Inland Empire and the Los Angeles area.

The route

The Foothill Freeway's western terminus is at its junction with the Golden State Freeway (I-5), near the Sylmar district of Los Angeles, in the foothills separating the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys. From that point, the freeway's alignment is generally diagonal as it heads southeast through the northeastern San Fernando Valley and the Crescenta Valley before turning due south towards the junction with the Ventura Freeway (State Route 134) in Pasadena. At this interchange, the number assignment of I-210, somewhat confusingly, 'transfers' to the alignment of CA-134. The physical alignment of the freeway continues south, however, ending at California Boulevard; this confusing alignment is actually the unsigned northern stub of the unfinished I-710, intended to junction with the 210. The Foothill Freeway then becomes an east-west freeway (the CA-134 number assignment is dropped east of the interchange). The freeway's alignment continues east until its junction with Interstate 15. About five miles (7.1 km) east of the interchange, the freeway ends at Alder Avenue in Rialto (as of October, 2005).

Prior to late 2003, the Foothill Freeway's 'numbered' alignment 'transferred' to what is now State Route 57 in San Dimas - although the physical alignment, as in Pasadena continued, in this case, eastward as State Route 30. Prior to late 2003, I-210's alignment was north-south after the junction in San Dimas and terminated at its intersection with the San Bernardino Freeway (I-10), the Orange Freeway (CA-57), and the Chino Valley Freeway (State Route 71) at the Kellogg Interchange complex.

However, in late 2003, a 20-mile (32 km) segment of the Foothill Freeway east of San Dimas was completed and the I-210 numbered assignment was transferred back to the east-west segment noted above, and the CA-57 number assignment replaced the I-210 number assigment.

The segment of the Foothill Freeway between its western terminus near Sylmar and what is now a southern spur in Glendora is signed as Interstate 210. (The former southern spur has since been re-signed as CA/SR-57, although it has not yet been designated as part of the Orange Freeway.) The eastern extension is signed as State Route 210 between the southern spur and the Escondido Freeway, and as CA/SR-30 from there to its eastern terminus in Mentone. Caltrans has petitioned the AASHTO, the federal body that oversees the interstate highway system, to re-sign the entire Foothill Freeway as I-210; this petition is unlikely to succeed until the eastern extension is complete.

The removal of the leg now signed as CA-57 gives I-210 an uncommon distinction: it is a 3-digit spur route that does not connect to its parent route, I-10. Moreover, the continued lack of I-710 completion means that I-210 does not even connect to another spur route of its parent (another I-X10, for example), but rather to those of two other interstates entirely, I-5 and I-15. A resigning of the route to an I-X05 or I-X15 designation is extremely unlikely, as this anomaly should be remedied when the plans for converting CA-30 to I-210 are completed. A character in the fifth season of the fictional television show 24, which is set in Southern California sometime around 2009 or 2010, gives her location to be the intersection of I-210 and I-10, presumably referring to a future reconnection of I-210 to its parent.
