Interstate 105 (I-105), also called the Glenn Anderson Freeway, is an Interstate Highway in Los Angeles County, California. It is a short spur of the Interstate 5. It goes from the Interstate 605 west to California State Route 1 at Los Angeles International Airport. The highway runs south of Los Angeles and north of Compton in an east-west direction. It is about 19 miles (31 km) long. When it first opened, it was called the Century Freeway.


Except where prefixed with a letter, postmiles were measured on the road as it was in 1964, based on the alignment that existed at the time, and do not necessarily reflect current mileage. R reflects a realignment in the route since then, M indicates a second realignment, L refers an overlap due to a correction or change, and T indicates postmiles classified as temporary (for a full list of prefixes, see the list of postmile definitions). Segments that remain unconstructed or have been relinquished to local control may be omitted. The entire route is in Los Angeles County.
