A new year. Time to start updated again. As always, you can keep up to date with me by following my blog at California Highways (just follow the "Roadgeeking" category). There you will find bi-monthly collections of articles related to California Highways, as well as other items of interest. There is also a California Highways Facebook group, where you can post updates.
So let's dig in.. Entries for the following routes were updated based on my reading of the papers (which are posted to the roadgeeking category at the "Observations Along The Road" and to the California Highways Facebook group) as well as any backed up email changes. I also reviewed the the AAroads forum; I've given up on misc.transport.road. This resulted in changes on the following routes, with credit as indicated [my research(*), contributions of information or leads (via direct mail) from Chris Sampang(1)]: I-5(*), Pre-1964 Route 7(*), I-10(*), I-15(*), Route I-280(*), I-215(*), I-405(*), I-710(*), I-880(*). Anneliese Ågren provided updates to the El Camino Real page.
Reviewed the Pending Legislation page. It is far too early in the legislative session for anything to have been passed, but I noted a few new bills of interest. The new California Legislature site is very nice, but it occasionally switches to another bill when moving tabs. As usually, I recommend to every Californian that they visit the legislative website regularly and see what their legis-critters are doing.
I checked the CTC Liaison page for the results of the CTC meeting held in January 2013. The following items were of interest:
(1) The Modoc County Transportation Commission and the Plumas County Transportation Commission propose to amend the 2012 STIP to transfer $30,000 in Plumas County RIP TE programmed by Modoc County (PPNO 2437) to R/W Support for the Greenville SR 89 Rehabilitation project (PPNO 3355) in Plumas County.
