State Route 63 in California
According to bestitude.com, State Route 63 is a state route in the U.S. state of California. The road forms a north-south route in the San Joaquin Valley, from Tulare via Visalia to Squaw Valley. State Route 63 is 40 miles long.
State Route 63 begins on the east side of the town of Tulare on State Route 137 and heads north through the agricultural San Joaquin Valley. Between the built-up areas of Tulare and Visalia is only a few kilometers. State Route 63 is between the two places with 2×2 lanes. Visalia is the largest city on the route, and State Route 63 is partially run with 2×3 lanes. The road runs right through downtown and intersects State Route 198, which forms an east-west freeway through Visalia. From Visalia, the road continues north along the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. West of Squaw Valley, the road ends at State Route 180.
State Route 63 has a minor regional importance, but due to the larger town of Visalia, the road is partly double-lane. The section between Tulare and Visalia was probably widened to 2×2 lanes as early as the 1960s. Apart from wider parts, the road has not been developed to a high standard.
22,000 vehicles drive daily between Tulare and Visalia, peaking at 26,500 vehicles in Visalia itself. North of Visalia, the intensities are lower, at 8,000 to 11,000 vehicles to Orange Cove and 2,100 vehicles further to Squaw Valley.

The interchange with I-8 partially opened to traffic in 1961, and the southern portion of the highway opened in 1966. The interchange with I-8 and Broadway was completed in 1967. In 1970 the route of the highway in its current form was completed. In 2011, the interchange opened with State Route 52.
In 1964 it was planned that SR-67 would be the eastern terminus of SR-56, but local opposition in Poway has held back this plan for the time being.
