December 2000. Added some information from the November 2000 CTC agenda to Route 22, Route 30, Route 56, and Route 108. Based on discussions in misc.transport.road, added some history to US 101 and Route 1. The usual link updates; this time, I added some new pages in California, Oklahoma, Georgia, South Carolina, and Wisconsin. The Georgia site is particular fun; it makes fun of the folks who drive in Atlanta.
Updated information on the timing of the definition of LRN 122 (Route 140), courtesy of the historians at Caltrans. Update the chronology to include 2000 route changes. Updated status of Route 104 from Joel Windmiller.
November 2000. Added yet another member to the cahighways family: roadmap.cahighways.org. Added information on California's postmile numbering system to the numbering system page. Corrected the information for the James Guthrie interchange (it is really the I-10/I-215 bridge). Added a link to the Mohave Bypass page to the Route 58 page. Added some more information on the history of US 66 and US 101A. Added some historical information for San Gabriel Mountain routes: County Route N3, Route 2, Route 39. Identified a new summit on Route 2, which moved to number 9 in the rankings, and displaced a summit on US 395 from the list.
October 2000. Continued with the never ending process of link updates. Added a little bit of updated status on the proposed Route 57 toll road. Updated information for resolutions/bills that were enrolled as of the September updates but were subsequently signed by the Governor (ACR 173, 9/18/00; ACR 174, 9/18/00; ACR 180, 9/18/00; SB 1526, 9/14/00; SB 1645, 9/19/00).

Added links to new exit lists from Daniel Moraseski.
Added another member to the cahighways.org family: Andy Field's http://san-diego.cahighways.org/, which is also located at aaroads.com. [2003: This site was renamed http://aaroads.cahighways.org/.
Changed the routing for the following routes:
August 2000. Primarily link changes, mostly due to some bums :-) named Andy Field and Alex Nitzman, who moved every one of Andy's San Diego pages (even though they were just moved a year ago), causing massive editing :-), and to Mike Ballard, who also decided to move his site. Added SPUI's new exit lists to Route 13, US 101, Route 120, Route 237, and Route 242.
Started creation of subdomains under cahighways.org for deserving sites. These are URL redirection links; they are available to sites that deal exclusively with California Highways, and that are maintained by "road afficionados". Such sites get a mention at the bottom of the cahighways.org home page. The first such site is Numan Parada's "Big Highways Site", which is now available at http://third.cahighways.org; the second is Scott Kozel's roadtrip, at http://roadtrip.cahighways.org/.
Added some new highway names:
July 2000. Added some status information on Orange County highways. Greatly expanded the El Camino Real pages with lots of historical information. Added some additional links to I-5 and US 101. Added some information on AZ 95 to the Route 95 page. Updated some summit infrormation for Route 168 and Route 4; thanks to John Baltzley for bringing it to my attention.
June 2000. Incorporated information from "State Highway Routes: Selected Information 1995". This included dates segments were incorporated into the Freeway and Expressway system, as well as milage information, counties traversed, federal aid, and significant summits.

May 2000. Reworked the Maps page. The maps are now used to tell a story. There are currently two pages on Southern California, and one on Northern California. Note that some of the full-size maps are quite large; one approaches 500-600K.
Added links on the individual highway pages to known exit lists for those highways. This affected I-5, I-8, I-10, CA 14, I-15, I-40, Route 52, Route 54, Route 56, Route 67, Route 78, I-80, Route 93, Route 94, Route 125, Route 163, I-280, I-680, CA 51 (Business Route 80), US 50, US 101, I-805, and Route 905.

With respect to actual highways: Added a new name to I-580 (38th Street Overpass in Oakland) (ACR 82, 1/28/00). Added links to the Caltrans pages for Route 41, Route 168, and Route 180. Updated some information in the chronology, based on an article in the Los Angeles Times. Also updated the chronology to show changes in Calendar Year 1999. Fixed a missing county name on County Route J46. Updated status on County Route J4. Updated the original routing of LRN 98, and added some historical information to US 50, Route 51, Route 88, I-80, and US 99E, thanks to Joel Windmiller. More future plan updates to US 101.

Updated information (based on m.t.r postings) on Route 4, Route 14, Route 20, Route 29, Route 41, Route 46, Route 49, Route 53, Route 58, Route 65, Route 70, Route 84, Route 87, Route 149, Route 152, Route 168, Route 178, Route 237, Route 239, Route 380, and Route 880.
