November/December 2013:

It's the end of the year. I'm sure snow is on the ground somewhere, and so it is time for the final set of updates to the highway pages.

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 — sad to say, I'm not seeing much there other than discussions about topics that aren't the sort of information I capture here. 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 Eric Armoror(2), Douglas Bright(3), Chris Sampang(4)]: I-10(*), Route 11(2), Route 23(1), Route 24(1), Route 29(4), Route I-710(1).

Reviewed the Pending Legislation page. 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. We seem to be in the quiet months -- there were no substantive changes, and no new bills or bill passages.

Reviewed the Traversable Highways document on the Caltrans website. Updated information for the following highways: Route 12, Route 13, Route 14, Route 18, Route 19, Route 24, Route 36, Route 37, Route 39, Route 47, Route 48, Route 52, Route 54, Route 56, Route 57, Route 64, Route 65, Route 74, Route 77, Route 81, Route 84, Route 87, Route 90, Route 92, Route 93, Route 100, Route 102, Route 104, Route 109, Route 118, Route 122, Route 127, Route 128, Route 130, Route 142, Route 143, Route 148, Route 152, Route 162, Route 164, Route 169, Route 170, Route 179, Route 180, Route 181, Route 190, Route 211, Route 217, Route 227, Route 230, Route 234, Route 235, Route 238, Route 239, Route 249, Route 251, Route 257, Route 258, Route 270, Route 276, Route 280, Route 281, Route 285, I-380, I-605, Route 710, Route 905. Traversable highways are existing roads or streets between the termini of and approximately along the State highway routes described in the Streets and Highways Code. Most traversable highways do not comply with state highway standards and cannot be adopted into the state highway system. Whenever a traversable highway is complete over its entire route and constructed to State highway standards. The California Transportation Commission must adopt the constructed facility and the Department must maintain it with funds from the State Highway Account. If a traversable highway exists over a portion of a route is constructed to State highway standards and connects to an already maintained state highway, the Commission may adopt the constructed facility. After the Commission adopts the facility, the Department maintains that facility with funds from the State Highway Account. An existing facility meets State highway standards if it provides an acceptable level of traffic service and does not require restoration.

I checked the CTC Liaison page for the results of the CTC meetings the December 11, 2013 meeting. The following items were of interest (note: ° indicates items that were below the level of detail for updating the specific route pages) :

If you hadn't figured it out by now, I'm not focused on taking pictures of highways. I'm not concerned with signage, or whether Caltrans is doing it right or wrong when contrasted with other states. I try not to hypothesize where routes should go -- I focus on where they are and where they went in the past. I try to remain focused on facts — if I talk about an adopted route, that's because I've seen the specifics of the adoption. Far too often, "road scholars" want the world to have a perfect sense of order to it, with everything consistent in terms of numbering, marking, and usage; I've learned in my soon-to-be 54 years that the real world, alas, doesn't have that sense of order (and wishing and discussions won't bring it). I also understand that some changes, although reasonable, are expensive and simply do not fit within budget strictures (this is common for simple signing changes, which are often quite complicated). So I don't try to make sense of it; I just try to report it.

September/October 2013:

Ah, October. A time when a new government fiscal year starts, and our congress' mind turns to ... shutdown. As a result, I'm using an unexpected furlough to work on the highway pages.

Started a methodical review of the archived California Highways and Public Works. In addition to a number of specific route updates, this review left me with a number of general observations that don't fit with any particular route:

A number of the items seen had to do with particular routes, but I didn't feel like incorporating that level of detail. This included numerous detailed discussions over many months about the construction of the first freeways (the Ramona, Santa Ana, Hollywood, Arroyo Seco), numerous discussions about freeways in San Francisco, Sacramento, and San Diego, and various discussions about construction materials and processes. The specific changes I identifled resulted in updates to the following routes: Route 1, Route 2, LRN 2, Route 3, Route 4, I-5, LRN 5, Route 7, Route 9, I-10, Route 12, Route 13, Route 14, I-15, Route 17, Route 18, LRN 19, Route 20, Route 21, LRN 21, Route 23, Route 24, LRN 26, Route 27, Route 28, Route 29, Route 30, Route 33, Route 37, Route 39, US 40, I-40, Route 42, LRN 43, Route 44, Route 47, US 48, Route 48, US 50, LRN 56, Route 57, Route 58, LRN 59, Route 59, Route 60, US 60, LRN 61, LRN 63, LRN 64, Route 64, US 66, Route 68, Route 70, US 70, Route 71, Route 74, LRN 74, LRN 75, Route 75, LRN 77, Route 77, LRN 78, LRN 79, US 80, LRN 80, I-80, Route 82, Route 84, Route 85, Route 86, Route 87, Route 90, US 91, Route 92, US 97, US 99, US 101, LRN 105, I-105, Route 108, Route 117, Route 118, Route 119, Route 125, Route 126, Route 128, Route 134, Route 138, LRN 149, Route 150, Route 152, Route 154, Route 157, Route 160, LRN 163, LRN 167, Route 170, LRN 173, Route 186, Route 187, Route 188, Route 190, US 199, I-210, LRN 213, LRN 233, LRN 237, Route 242, Route 246, Route 248, Route 252, LRN 253, Route 266, Route 268, I-280, US 299, I-380 (Southern Crossing), US 395, US 399, I-405, Route 440, US 466, I-605, I-680, I-710, Route 740, I-805, I-880, I-905. Added a picture of one of the first callboxes to the postmile page, and added the 1963 LA freeway and expressway system map to the LA map page 3. Note that I often didn't incorporate all the information in the issues on a highway -- in particular, I didn't capture every route relocation (as some were simple straightenings and such), nor did I note the freeway adoptions for every segment. I tended only to note something if it had a significant effect on numbering or it caught my eye for some other purpose.

Updated the chronology pages to reflect the primary routes defined in 1927, and to reflect the summary changes since 2007, when I had last updated the chronology pages.

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(*), contributions of information or leads (via direct mail) from Joel Windmiller(1)]: Route 12(*), Route 67(*), Route 71(*), I-80(*), US information on the highway naming polices to the Naming Page, thanks to a pointer from Chandru Vittal.

Reviewed the Pending Legislation page. 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. Noted the passage or veto of the following bills:

I checked the CTC Liaison page for the results of the CTC meetings the October meeting. The following items were of interest:

City will accept ownership, maintenance, operation and liability over the relinquished facilities.

June/July/August 2013:

Labor day weekend. Always a good time for a project such as updating the highway pages. As I write this, the Bay Bridge is getting ready to reopen, so let's get to the updates. 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.

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(*), contributions of information or leads (via direct mail) from Michael Ballard(1), Rebecca Kellawan(2), Clark Peters(3), R.S.(4), Jim White(5)]: Route 1(*), I-5(*), Route 11(1), Route I-80(*), Route 91(*), US 101(*), Route 126(*), Route 138 (High Desert Corridor)(*), Route I-580(*), I-710(*), I-880(*), Lassen CR A1(4) .

Reviewed the August 1934 issue of "California Highways and Public Works". This is the issue where there announced the signing of state routes. Made sure the information on the site corresponded to that issue. This was an extensive effort, updating many many routes. The most interesting find? Route 180, which seems to have included (to be) signed segments in 1934 that were not defined until 1959, and even odder, was planned to be extended across the Sierra mountains to end in Independence (again, that extension was not part of the legislatively defined state highway system).

Reviewed the Pending Legislation page. 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. Noted the passage of the following bills:

March/April/May 2013:

It's been a busy time, and time for highway page updates have been few and far between. 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.

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(*), contributions of information or leads (via direct mail) from Mike Ballard(1), Henry at AARoads(2), Xuan Luo(3), Robert J. Pachinger(4), Curtis Reeves(5), Joel Windmiller(6)]: Route 1(*), Route 2(*,1), Route 4(*), I-5(*), Route 12(*), I-15(*), Route 19(*), Route 23(*), Route 27(*), Route 29(*), Former US 40(*,6), Route 48(4,5), US 50(*), Route 79(*), I-80(*), Route 91(*), Route 99(*,6), US 101(*), Route 103(*), Route 133(*), Route 134(*), Route 135(*), Route 148(6), Route 156(*), Route 170(1), Route 178(*), Route 241(*), I-280(*),I-405(*), I-580(*), I-680(*),I-710(1), I-805(*), I-880(*), El Camino Real(3). For a number of the larger routes, I made an effort to get the status and structures into the correct geographical order; specifically, this was done for US 50, Route 99, Route 299. I plan to do it for a few of the larger ones (such as US 101) as time permits.

Added a link to the Western Map Co Freeway and Artery Map of Los Angeles (1963). Added a link to the Unbuilt Freeways of San Francisco(2). Updated the links to Mike Ballards SCV Resources page.

Reviewed the Pending Legislation page. 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. The legislature has been busy introducting bills and resolutions (over 1,000 of them in the Assembly, and almost 700 in the State Senate). However, none of them has reached the point where they have been sent to the Governor for signature.

I checked the CTC Liaison page for the results of the CTC meetings held in March and May 2013. The following items were of interest:

January/February 2013:

A new year. Time to start updating 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.

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.
