Espola Road Explained
Espola Road is the major street through northern and eastern Poway. Rancho Bernardo Road turns into it at the San Diego-Poway border, running east across the northern part of the city. It makes a 90 degree turn south, passing the access road for Lake Poway as well as Poway HS, narrows from four lanes to two, and continues until it ends at Poway Road, at the bottom of the Poway Grade leading to CA-67.

I always assumed the road was named for some person involved in the community's founding, or who once owned much of the northern part of town. As it turns out, that isn't the case:

How did the “Espola” Road get named?
When built, it was to span between EScondido, POway and LAkeside.
