Long Description:
While Chandler names some N-S streets after states, and some E-W streets after cities, none of the other cities represented meet their home state except at this intersection. This stretch of California dead-ends at Oakland. The intersection is at the south boundary of Chandler's Hoy Homes neighborhood.

Oakland, California, is located on the east side of San Francisco Bay, and is a major West Coast port. Its name comes from the oak trees that used to cover the area where it now stands. (All facts from the Wikipedia entry.) Oakland's other major connection with the Phoenix valley, besides this intersection, is that its major-league baseball team, the Oakland Athletics, have their spring training facility in Mesa (formerly in Phoenix).
