Post 1964 Signage History
In 1963, Route 214 was defined as the route from "Route 19 near
Lakewood to Route 5 near Anaheim." This routing ran along Carson and
In 1965, Chapter 1372 added the condition that "this route shall cease to
a state highway when Route 91 freeway is completed from Route 19 to Route 5 and
the commission relinquishes that portion of present Route 91 from Route 19
In 1981, Chapter 292 deleted the routing.
Pre 1964 Signage History
The 1964-1981 routing was the old surface street routing of Route 18/US 91
(pre-1963 Route 15) along Lincoln Avenue between US 101 (present-day I-5)
Route 19. This is LRN 178.
Pre-1964 Legislative Route
In 1949, Chapter 1467 added LRN 214 as "[LRN 68] near Ralston Ave to [LRN 55]" This was roughly Ralston Ave in Belmont between US 101 and Route 35/I-280.
In 1953, Chapter 1485 deleted that definition, operative January 1, 1955
Chapter 1062 added a new definition of LRN 214, as the route from LRN 239
(future I-280) near Woodside to LRN 68 (Bypass US 101; present-day freeway
US 101) at the Harbor Boulevard Interchange in Redwood City. This appears to
been the designation for surface LRN 107 created in advance of the freeway
routing for LRN 107 (although until the freeway was constructed, both were
technically LRN 107). The route was Route 84 along Woodside Road.
