    Naming Naming

    National Purple Heart Trail (Rte 223)The portion of Route 223 from Route 99 to Route 58, in the County of Kern is included in the National Purple Heart Trail. The National Purple Heart Trail was established in 1992 for the purpose of commemorating and honoring men and women who have been wounded or killed in combat while serving in the United States Armed Forces. The National Purple Heart Trail courses its way across the vast majority of the United States. In 2001, pursuant to Senate Concurrent Resolution 14, the Legislature designated portions of I-5 and I-80 as California's selections for inclusion in the National Purple Heart Trail. In 2009, pursuant to Assembly Concurrent Resolution 12, the Legislature designated a portion of US 101 for inclusion in the National Purple Heart Trail. Thie resolution designates an additional portion of the state highway system for inclusion in the National Purple Heart Trail in order to honor the men and women who have been wounded or killed in combat while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Named by Senate Concurrent Resolution (SCR) 105, Resolution Chapter 95, on 8/20/2010.

In 1947 (1st Ex Sess), Chapter 11 defined LRN 223 as “a point on [LRN 2] near Division Street to [LRN 56]”.

This was the routing from US 101 near Division Street to Route 1 in San Francisco. It appears to have been a routing along Oak and Fell Streets in San Francisco, and then through the Golden Gate Park to Route 1. This was the "Western Freeway" I-80 routing. In the 1955 trafficways plan, it was shown as "Deleted, pending further study".

Between 1968 and 1972, this route was Route 241 (note that LRN 222 was the 1964-1965 Route 241).
