The collapse of the Golden State Freeway (Interstate 5) at Gavin Canyon in the Northridge earthquake severed the main artery between Southern California and the rest of the state. A four-lane detour along The Old Road was constructed two weeks later to handle traffic, which nonetheless continued to bottleneck through the Newhall Pass.

Despite the impression "Monday Night Football" may leave, Wisconsin has more to offer than dairy products, but much of it is less conspicuous and more genuine than mere tourist amusement. Madison, for example, is not only the cosmopolitan state capital, but also the starting point for a 60-mile journey into an architectural legacy. U.S.

The portions of Interstate 5 and Highway 14 that collapsed where the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys meet were scheduled for retrofitting this year. But experts say that because of the quake's severe vertical movement and the highways' location near an unknown fault, retrofitting may not have prevented the collapses. Both highways were built to meet standards set after the 1940 El Centro earthquake. Those standards did not require engineers to gauge the danger of nearby fault lines.

Some commuters call it Orange County's Autobahn, the one area of the Southern California driving experience where, suddenly, Interstate 5 feels like a roadway in Germany, France, Austria or Switzerland, where the speedometer cranks up to 110, 120, 130 . . . That's kilometers. In miles per hour, the speeds along this route routinely reach 70 and 80 and sometimes climb higher than the much-ignored limit of 65.

This weekend, load the trunk with a rock hammer, chisels, a pick and shovel and all the water you can carry. Your destination is Opal Canyon, the Mojave Desert home of two opal mines that allow visitors to hunt and keep the fabled semiprecious stones. The Kern County mines are the only known sources of gem-fire opals in California, and one of only three recognized opal fields in the United States.

Authorities are investigating a three-car crash on the southbound Highway 14 after a Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputy was hit by a vehicle during a traffic stop late Saturday near Palmdale, authorities said. About 8:50 p.m., a deputy responded to a traffic stop involving a person suspected of driving under the influence. As the deputy exited the vehicle, a passing vehicle struck him, then crashed into another vehicle, according to CHP and sheriff's officials. The deputy suffered minor injuries.

Regarding "Wherefore Art Thou in Utah" (Aug. 2): It is unbelievable that the writer could visit Cedar City, Utah, for three days and miss what we consider to be the city's best restaurant, Milt's Stage Stop. She passed right by Milt's as she left on U.S. Highway 14. Milt's serves wine, is reasonably priced, and has friendly service and a great setting. JIM AND LYNNE NORRIS, Los Olivos

Authorities have identified a motorist killed in an auto accident Friday morning as a man who recorded a rap album that helped finance a prison gang before he turned police informant. Robert Lee Gratton, 44, of Palmdale -- who authorities suspect was driving while intoxicated -- was backing his Chevrolet Cavalier down Highway 14 north of Agua Dulce Road about 1:15 a.m. Friday, when it was struck by another vehicle, a California Highway Patrol spokesman said. Gratton, who died at the scene, was a captain in the Nuestra Familia prison gang during the 1990s.

A lane closure almost impacted St. Bonaventure's opener against Paraclete. A fire in Palmdale forced closure of one lane on Highway 14 late Friday afternoon, backing up traffic for miles and turning the trip to Lancaster into a three-hour odyssey. The Seraphs, who left Ventura at 3:15 p.m., arrived at Antelope Valley College after 6 p.m.
