Inscription.  
Ort J. Lofthus
Crosstown Freeway
This outstanding civic leader rejected the prospect that Stockton would settle for a ”freeway to nowhere.” He organized the FOCUS (Finish Our Crosstown-Unite Stockton) committee and motivated our state government to complete this vital link between I-5 and US 99. More than any other individual he worked persistently to make it a “Freeway To Somewhere.”
Dedicated March 16, 1987
