In June 2021, the CTC amended the SHOPP as follows:
06-Ker-223 R16.0 PPNO 6758 ProjID 0614000057 EA 06-0R190. Route 223 Near
Weedpatch, at Route 184 (Wheeler Ridge Road) intersection. Construct
roundabout. (Additional $1,500,000 from local contribution). Note:
Increase construction capital from $2,700K to $4,400K due to a deeper
roadway pavement section required to address current pavement failure.
This change results in additional asphalt, traffic control, and aggregate
base. Accelerate delivery year to FY21-22 to align with the available
local funding contribution.

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.
