After Los Angeles, Interstate 5 passes through the Grapevine. Climbing the mountain, the right lane is used for slow vehicles only, as there are steep grades. Before Bakersfield, the freeway splits with SR 99.
After the split, Interstate 5 passes through the Great Valley for about 200 miles until reaching the San Francisco–Sacramento metropolitan area. Before Oakland, the freeway splits with Interstate 580, which takes traffic toward Oakland, San Francisco, and San Rafael.
Interstate 5 continues through Stockton before reaching Sacramento. The freeway twists through the center of the California capital and then intersects with Interstate 80, taking truckers to San Francisco and Nevada.
Upon entering Oregon's Rogue Valley, it continues through Oregon's southern mountains and into the city of Medford. It turns west and intersects with US 199 in the town of Grants Pass before turning north again.
Gradually, the mountains turn into hills as the freeway snakes its way into the Willamette Valley. In Eugene, the highway intersects with Interstate 105, a short spur route into downtown Eugene, OR 126, and OR 569. The Interstate then heads almost due north, skirting Albany (a scenery town) and passing. through Salem.
After first tracking a little to the northeast, the highway hits the southern terminus of Interstate 405 and the Marquam Bridge. After crossing the Willamette River on the Marquam Bridge, I-5 has junctions at the western end of I-84 and the northern end of Interstate 405. It then continues through the northern parts of the city of Portland, and crosses into Washington via the Interstate Bridge.
In Washington after crossing the Interstate Bridge Interstate 5 passes under the railroad tracks and intersects WA 14 which goes to Vancouver. A few miles down the road the highway enters Longview where it intersects WA 432 before it crosses the Newaukum River on two truss bridges. It intersects US 12 just outside of town.
Upon entering Tacoma Puget Sound comes into view on the left as the highway turns north towards the Emerald City itself.
Upon leaving Tacoma Interstate 5 passes the harbor and enters the Emerald City itself Seattle where it intersects Interstate 405 and Interstate 90 before entering the Melrose Ave Tunnel under Seattle. Upon exiting the tunnel Interstate 5 passes the Space Needle and crosses the Ship Canal Bridge and enters Everett.
In Everett Interstate 5 intersects WA 526 which goes to the Darwing (real life Boeing) Everett Plant. A few miles down the road the highway enters downtown and intersects US 2. Interstate 5 continues north before intersecting WA 529 and leaves Everett.
After leaving Burlington Interstate 5 enters Bellingham and passes through the city before it reaches the northern boundary and crosses the 49th Parallel where it terminates at the Peace Arch Port of Entry in Blaine where it becomes BC Highway 99 in Canada.
