"Residential but mostly used to get from once place to another"

Ashby Avenue, also known as State Route 13, is a mostly hectic and cramped street that runs from the far western edge of Berkeley to the eastern edge where it ends in the hills. It's mostly a tight and narrow two lanes (one in each direction) which leads to traffic buildup during heavy driving times. This also means the 9 Dwight, which runs up and down a long length of the street, gets delayed as well. It's no joy to be a pedestrian either, as the traffic is hectic and in many spots the sidewalk narrow. Most people seem to just want to use it as a means of getting from the freeway to the eastern side of town. Theres a small post-industrial area near San Pablo that offers some shops, and the Berkeley Whole Foods can be found at the intersection of Ashby at Telegraph.
