History and Signage Information History and Signage Information

County Sign Route J132 was defined in 1961. It seems likely the definition fell in line with the realigned Route 49 pushing Route 132 into downtown Coulterville with the completion of the 1963 Maxwell Creek Bridge.

According to the maps in the Gribblenation blog on the Old Coulterville Road, the path of the Old Coulterville Road follows County Sign Route J132 via Main Street and Greeley Hill Road eastward towards the intersection with Smith Station Road. County Sign Route J132/Old Coulterville Road on Main Street is co-signed as the Historic John Muir Route. East of Redcould Park County Sign Route J132 descends a series of hills and splits from Greeley Hill Road onto Smith Station Road. The path of the Old Coulterville Road remains on Greeley Hill Road east of the Smith Station Road intersection.

Status Status

This route is signed as J132 several times in Mariposa County, and again at the Mariposa/Tuolumne county border. There are no signs indicating "J20" (although the Compass map (1995) of Calaveras/Tuolumne counties does have it labeled as J20). It appears to be a continuation of Route 132.

This also appears to be referred to as County Sign Route J20. It is not in the Caltrans Database as County Sign Route J132; however, the route appears to be signed as both J132 and J20. It is possible the signed route database has been updated without the knowledge of CalTrans.
