Post the December 2013 relinquishment, this becomes an unconstructed route as it appears the entirety of the route has been deleted. Caltrans could define a new route with the same endpoints until the legislative definition is updated. Note: These pages won't show the route as unconstructed, however, as signage likely remains.
This route was LRN 150, defined in 1933.
