LocationFresnoSan Benito Counties
Length70.48 mi[1] (113.43 km)
Existed1958–present[2]

County Route J1 is a county road in San Benito and Fresno counties. The route begins in Paicines, San Benito County, at State Route 25. Between Paicines and Panoche Valley, J1 is known as Panoche Road. Its north–south portion between Panoche Valley and Fresno County is called Little Panoche Road. In Fresno County, the route then intersects with Interstate 5 and terminates in Mendota at State Route 33 near State Route 180 in the Central Valley. East of Interstate 5, the alignment of J1 follows Fresno County's West Shields Avenue (which is Exit 379 off of Interstate 5). Shields Avenue ends at North Fairfax Avenue. J1 continues south 2 miles (3.2 km) on Fairfax Avenue to West Belmont Avenue, at which location J1 proceeds east on Belmont Avenue until its end at State Routes 33 and 180.

Panoche Road lies within the corridor of an unbuilt Route 180 segment. No current plan exists to extend Route 180 westward from Mendota past Interstate 5 and into San Benito County.[3]

Parts of J1 just west of I-5 are gravel rather than paved.[4]

Length39.22 mi[5] (63.12 km)
Existed1960–present[6]

County Route J2 is a series of streets and roads in the California counties of Alameda and San Joaquin.

The highway continues past the southeast edge of Livermore to become Tesla Road and rise into the Diablo Range, which separates the outer San Francisco Bay Area from the San Joaquin Valley.

At the Alameda-San Joaquin county line, J2 becomes Corral Hollow Road and enters the narrow valley of the same name. Upon approaching the San Joaquin Valley, the road turns northward, meeting Interstate 580 again and arriving at the southern subdivisions of Tracy. After passing through this city, the road intersects Interstate 205, shifts briefly onto Lammers Road, and soon turns northward onto Tracy Boulevard. Here J2 crosses the sea-level Union and Roberts Islands in the San Joaquin-Sacramento River Delta before terminating at State Route 4.

The southern terminus for County Route J7 is at SR 59 in Merced, locally known as The Snelling Highway. The route is locally signed as Santa Fe Drive. From this point, it travels north for 12 mi through Merced County, passing by the former site of Castle Air Force Base in Atwater. Upon crossing the Merced River, the route continues in Stanislaus County for another 20 mi until it reaches the community of Empire.

Once it crosses the Stanislaus River and enters San Joaquin County, the route is locally signed as Santa Fe Road. At this point, it continues its parallel path with the BNSF rail line. About 4.3 mi after entering San Joaquin County, the route then enters Escalon and becomes Main Street for 0.7 mi before reaching SR 120. CR J7 very briefly co-signs with SR 120 before intersecting with CR J6. The two county routes share the same roadway (locally signed as Escalon-Bellota Road) for 2 mi before CR J7 turns onto Lone Tree Road. It follows Lone Tree Road for 8 mi until the road terminates at French Camp Road. At this point, it also intersects with CR J5 (Jack Tone Road).

At this point, CR J7 follows French Camp Road, which parallels a railroad spur connecting BNSF with UPRR. During the 9.5-mi length that the route co-signs with French Camp Road, it also intersects with SR 99 and CR J3 (Airport Way), passing near the Delicato Winery. The county route eventually meets its northern terminus with I-5 at the southern edge of Stockton.
