California State Route 120, often referred as CA 120 or the Tioga Pass Road (or Tioga Road), is a road that traverses the Tioga Pass. It was added with the 1.31 update for American Truck Simulator.
The road starts at the interchange with Interstate 5 between Oakland and Oakdale and ends at the US 395 in the south of Carson City, passing through Yosemite National Park. It was first announced on the SCS Blog that it will come with the 1.31 update.
Without a trailer, the entrance fee of the National Park is $20. When you try to drive through the gate with a trailer, you will get a message which says: ''Commercial trucking is prohibited here. You have to turn around and go back!'' If you ignore that, you will get a $1000 fine.
Detailed Route Description[edit | edit source]
The CA 120 begins as a undivided one lane highway. It starts at Oakdale, a few miles east of Interstate 5, in front of a gas station and a rest area. It passes by a Bushnell Farms depot while curving north, before turning into a two lane divided highway. The speed limits here are 50 mph. After rounding a bend to climb up a small hill, it becomes a undivided one lane highway again. It crosses the Tuolumne River via the James E. Roberts Memorial Bridge. From here, the road becomes very windy so the speed limit is lowered to 30 mph. The trucker can see the town of Moccasin and the Moccasin Reservoir below them on their right. Before entering Yosemite, there is an inaccessible road down to Moccasin and a gas station. A sign notes that there is no gas in Yosemite. At the entrance to Yosemite, there is a parking lot where one can sleep. Because of the road's sharp turns, the speed limit in Yosemite is 35 mph and 45 mph. One can stop by one of two viewpoints to take in the view of arguably one of the best and beautiful national parks in America. The trucker than exits Yosemite 50 miles later shortly before the road ends with a junction with US 395.
