We'll be driving down 101 on a Monday in July and will eventually get on I-5 heading down to Carlsbad. I was thinking of spending the night either around Camarillo or else going over to Santa Clarita. Would the traffic be worse on a Tuesday morning taking 101 to 405 to I-5 or.....heading down I-5 from Santa Clarita?
If the Santa Clarita trip would be better, how bad it is from 101 to Santa Clarita on 126 in the afternoon or evening?
When does the traffic let up in the morning and what are the worst times in the afternoon?
Thank you for any help you can give.
