In 1957, Chapter 24 defined LRN 240 to be “[LRN 4] near Glendale to [LRN 26] near the east boundary of Los Angeles County on a route to be selected by the California Highway Commission, which route may include all or portions of any existing state highway route or routes”. The urgency clause noted this was related to a circumferential freeway around Los Angeles.

This route runs from I-5 near Glendale to I-10 near the east boundary of Los Angeles County. This LRN was used for the future freeway routings of Route 134 between present-day I-5 and I-210, and I-210 between Route 134 and Route 57, and Route 57 between I-210 and I-10. It duplicated the paths of LRN 161 and LRN 9. The portion between the post-1998 Route 210/Route 57 junction and I-10 was originally also I-210.

Between San Dimas and US 60/US 70/US 99, LRN 240 was to have been designated Route 71 (the signed Route 71 at this time ran to the east along LRN 19).
