I need a California roads network suitable for building a network dataset and routing to 120 locations. It needs to at least cover the Northern half of California. 2010 Census roads need alot of cleanup or I would try using those. Any ideas for places to start?

Are you seeking Commercial Data sets (Navteq, TeleAtlas) or are you looking for 'free' Open Access datasets? – Mapperz Mar 27 '12 at 17:54
free open access data if possible – Boyle300 Mar 27 '12 at 18:35

The obvious answer is OpenStreetMap. If quality is good enough for your purpose.
