December 2015:

We're at the end of another year. I had hoped to do more frequent updates, but this little thing called life got in the way. Perhaps I'll find more time next year. But for now, let's look at the last four months of updates:

Updates were made to the following highways, 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(1), contributions of information or leads (via direct mail) from Laurie Martin Perlowin Avocado(2), Concrete Bob at AAroads(3), Emory at AAroads(4), Andy Fields(5), Jander at AAroads(6), Jonathan Ledbetter(7), Nexus73 at AAroads(8), Joe Rouse(9), Arturo Salazar(10), Chris Sampang(11), Oscar Voss(12): Postmile Numbering(7), Route 1(1), Route 4(1,12), I-5(1,5), Route 11(1,5), Route 12(5), I-15(1), Route 17(1), Route 23(1), Route 29(1), Route 37(1), US 40(5), Route I-215(1), Route 227(1), US 395(7), I-405(1), I-580(1), I-605(10), I-680(1), I-710(1,9,10), I-805(1), I-880(6), Route 905(5), I-980(1).

Reviewed the Pending Legislation page, based on the new California Legislature site. As usual, I recommend to every Californian that they visit the legislative website regularly and see what their legis-critters are doing. Noted the passage of the following bills and resolutions (for some of these, I've highlighted key phrases in red):

I checked the CTC Liaison page for the results of the CTC meetings from mid-September 2015 to the end of the year. This included the October and December meetings. Given the large number of items this period, I'm focusing more on the new items or significant changes, as opposed to funding amendments or implementing agency amendments.

May 2015:

This has been a busy busy year, with most weekends taken up by theatre and theatre reviews (if you didn't know, I see lots of theatre and review every show I see; you can find all the reviews in the "reviews" category on my blog). But Memorial Day weekend is the perfect time to catch up on things. So put something on to slow-cook on the barbeque, and let's dig in:

Updates were made to the following highways, 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, but as usual it contained no additional information beyond what I gleaned on my own. I've given up on misc.transport.road. This resulted in changes on the following routes, with credit as indicated [my research(1), contributions of information or leads (via direct mail) from Ronald Hall(2), Ray Mullins(1), and Joel Windmiller(3)]: Route 1(1), Route 12(1), Route 16(2), Route 33(1), Route 64(1), Route I-405(1), I-680(1), I-710(1), Santa Clara CR G2(1), Santa Clara County Route G4(1).

Reviewed the Pending Legislation page, based on the new California Legislature site. As usual, I recommend to every Californian that they visit the legislative website regularly and see what their legis-critters are doing. No items had passed yet.

I checked the CTC Liaison page for the results of the CTC meetings from January through May 26, 2015. I lucked out -- the May meeting was May 28, so I only had January and March to deal with. The following items were of interest (note: ° indicates items that were below the level of detail for updating the specific route pages) :
