UEI is located on the corner of 3rd&F.The South Bay courthouse is located between H&I.A post office is right down the block between J&K.From Moss-Orange the area is considered by locals as "Restaurant Row" with Burger King,Taco Shops,CJ's,JIB,Pizza and other types of places.Speed limit throughout is 35 but between E and H it is 25.
