November/December 2012:

It's the end of the year, which must mean that it is time to do the final round up of updates for the highway pages. As I say every time.. you can keep up to date with me by following my blog at California Highways, as well as following the California Highways Facebook group. Over the past two years, I've used Facebook to collect the articles of interest for each update. However, it now looks like Facebook is hiding articles and not making it easy to find them again. What I've decided to do is to collect up the articles and post a summary post to my blog every couple of weeks. To make it easy to find, just go and look at the roadgeeking category. This article will also to share your news about California Highways, and I'll look at any comments there for updates. I'll post a link to the summary article to the Facebook group. This will start in 2013.

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 and misc.transport.road. [As an aside:I may stop reviewing MTR as I'm finding very little there of use these days. As for AAroads, most of the discussions there are not about changes in routes for California highways, but more arguments about numbers and signing standards and such. Although all are valid discussions, it is not the sort of information I'm collecting for here.] This resulted in changes on the following routes, with credit as indicated [my research(1), contributions of information or leads (via direct mail) from Patrick Carroll(2), Hanz Laetz(3), Steve Pederson(4)]: Route 1(1), Route 4(1), I-5(1), I-15(1), I-80(1,2), Route 84(1), Route 86/Route 86S(3), Route 91(1), US I-210(1), I-215(1), Route 241(1), I-280(1), I-380(2), I-605(1), Route 905(4). Hystin Zylstra also noted that California Legacy License Plate landing page was now active.

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.

Speaking of updates.. Entries for the following routes were updated based on my reading of the papers (which are posted to California Highways Facebook group) as well as any backed up email changes. I also reviewed the the AAroads forum and misc.transport.road.

March/April/May 2012:

A bit delayed, but I'm finally getting around to another update. Again, I'm using Amaya, although I have Blue Griffon standing by if I need it. The blog is also progressing well, so I do encourage everyone to follow it. As always, you can keep up to date on the latest headlines related to California Highways by friending the California Highways Facebook group. I've set it up to get the regular Metro.Net headline posting, and I regularly highlight any highway related articles I find on the net. It is also your place to share news about California Highways, and I pick up that news from there for these updates.

On to the update.. Entries for the following routes were updated based on my reading of the papers (which are posted to California Highways Facebook group) as well as any backed up email changes. I also reviewed the the AAroads forum and misc.transport.road, but didn't find any updates there. This resulted in changes on the following routes, with credit as indicated [my research(1), contributions of information or leads (via direct mail or Usenet) from Anneliese Ågren(2), Michael Ballard(3), Andrew Leung(4), David Markowitz(5), Oscar Voss(6), Tom & Millie(7)]: Route 1(1,2),Route 4(1,3), I-5(1), Pre-1964 Route 7(1), Route 7(6), I-8(1), I-10(1), Route 12(1), Route 17(2), Route 20(1), Route 24(1), Route 39(1), Route 46(3), Route 47(1), US 50(1), Route 65(3), Route 66(4), Route 68(5), I-80(1), Route 91(1), Route 99(1,3), US-101(1), Route 103(1), Route 111(6), Route 121(1), Route 160(1), Route 190(1), I-210(1), Route 237(1), I-405(1), I-580(1),I-605(1), I-710(1), I-880(1), Siskiyou County Route A12(7).

Added the book Where the Road Begins: The Saga of Big Sur's Pioneer Families by Peter Gray Scott to the recommended reading list, based on a recommendation from Anneliese Ågren. Also added a link to Pacific Electric and the Growth of the San Fernando Valley, which I picked up recently and has wonderful information and pictures of the San Fernando Valley.

Updated some information on the theft of mission bells along El Camino Real in Ventura.

Alexis Tate provided some reports of broken links on one of the links pages. As a reminder, if you ever discover a broken link on any page, please report it to me so I can correct it or remove it. In other link changes, Bridget Summers submitted DistractedDrivingHelp, which is an omnibus site that collects a number of resources to help in the fight against distracted driving. Given the importance of that fight, I added it to the Other Links page, and included links to the sites on distracted driving from the AAA Foundation and the California Highway Patrol. The students at Pinewood Elementary School also submitted a link for the history page--they found a good site with the history of the transcontinental railroad. As a reminder: I always welcome link updates or link suggestions, but I don't just link to help people advertise. Links must be highway related, and I review every link I add. Note that "highway related" does not mean "travel related".

Based on information provided by Charlie McCoy, added information on Classified Landscaped Freeways. A Classified Landscaped Freeway is a section of freeway with planting that meets the criteria of the Outdoor Advertising Regulations. It is used in the control and regulation of Outdoor Advertising Displays. A full list of such freeways may be found here, supposedly there are regular additions that can be found here. Classified Lanscaped information was added to the following routes: Route 1, Route 2, Route 4, I-5, I-8, I-10, Route 12, Route 13, Route 14, I-15,Route 17, Route 20, Route 22, Route 23, Route 24, Route 29, Route 30, Route 33,Route 37, I-40, Route 41, Route 44, Route 47, Route 49, US 50, Route 51, Route 52, Route 54, Route 55, Route 56, Route 57, Route 58, Route 60, Route 65, Route 67, Route 68, Route 71, Route 73, Route 78, I-80, Route 84, Route 85, Route 86, Route 87, Route 90, Route 91, Route 92, Route 94, Route 99, US 101, I-105, I-110, Route 113, Route 118, Route 120, Route 125, Route 126, Route 134, Route 135, Route 154, Route 160, Route 163, Route 168, Route 170, Route 178, Route 180, Route 198, US 199, I-205, I-210, I-215, Route 217, Route 237, Route 238, Route 241, Route 242, Route 244, Route 259, Route 260, Route 261, Route 275,I-280, Route 299, Route 330, I-380, I-405, I-580, I-605, I-680, I-710, I-780, I-805, I-880, Route 905, I-980.

Checked the Calnexus page, but I don't think they are updating the exit number lists anymore.

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

I was also amused by the title of SJR 27, the "Are You Dense Day". Alas, it wasn't what I was hoping for, instead being focused on Breast Cancer density testing (not that such testing is a bad thing; rather, I was hoping for a day where we could go around to people saying, "What? Are you dense?!?".

Noted that one of the CTC items below identified that portions of former US 99W (that are neither Route 99 nor I-5) may still be in the state highway system. This is best seen starting around Williams, CA, where there is a road roughly parallel to I-5 that appears to be called "Old Hwy 99W", "County Road 99W", "Highway 99W" (as in Williams, CA), "99W Highway", "State Highway 99W", and "Road 99W". The latter designation is co-signed with Tehama County Route A8 north of San Benito Avenue near Red Bluff, CA. It is unclear if these portions have postmiles. Information on this was added to the "SUFFIXED" section of the Route 99 entry.

I checked the CTC Liaison page for the results of the February, March, April, and May meetings. The following items were of interest (note that the results from the May meeting were not yet posted):

January / February 2012:

A new year, and time for another update. This update is an experiment. If you read my blog, you know that I've been looking to find a new HTML editor, as HoTMetaL Pro is no longer supported. I'm experimenting with Amaya, and it seems someone reasonable. I'm not yet used to the keyboard commands, and it doesn't have a good link validation mechanism, but finding good software is difficult. You would think, with as long as the web has been around (in Internet years), problems like this would have been solved. As always, if you have a good suggestion regarding an HTML editor, I'm open to suggestions.

The move of the blog to http://blog.cahighways.org/ at the beginning of the year has worked well. I'm mirroring it to both Livejournal and Facebook, but I haven't yet figured out a way to have it autopost to G+. Again, suggestions are welcome. Alas, I'm not getting the level of comments I like, so I do encourage all you lurkers to speak up. As always, you can keep up to date on the latest headlines related to California Highways by friending the California Highways Facebook group. I've set it up to get the regular Metro.Net headline posting, and I regularly highlight any highway related articles I find on the net. It is also your place to share news about California Highways, and I pick up that news from there for these updates.

On to the update.. Entries for the following routes were updated based on my reading of the papers (which are posted to California Highways Facebook group) as well as any backed up email changes. I also reviewed the the AAroads forum and misc.transport.road, but didn't find any updates there. This resulted in changes on the following routes, with credit as indicated [my research(1), contributions of information or leads (via direct mail or Usenet) from Anneliese Ågren(2), Patrick Carroll(3), Alan Mintz(4), JP(5): Route 1(1,3), LRN 1(1), Route 4(1), I-5(1), Route 7(1), I-10(1), Route 17(5), Route 24(1), Route 26(1), Route I-710(1), I-805(1), Route 905(1).
