Capay-Berryessa Toll Road

Capay-Berryessa Toll Road

In the late 1800s, two routes enabled travellers to cross the Blue Ridge. The lowest route across this mountain wall was, and still is, through Putah Creek Canyon, where today’s Highway 128 is located. The Cache Creek Canyon route was not opened until the mid-1920s[i].  Mostly forgotten is the old Capay-Berryessa Toll Road, used for almost 70 years crossing a high gap  between Capay Valley and  Berryessa Valley.
