Post 1964 Signage History
In 1963, Route 250 was defined as “Route 5 near Orange County
Hospital northerly to Route 91.”
In 1965, Chapter 1372 added a condition to the route definition:
“This route will cease to be a state highway when Route 57 freeway
is completed from Route 5 to Route 91.”
In 1981, Chapter 292 deleted this route.
Pre 1964 Signage History
This was LRN 180, defined in 1933. It ran along Placentia Ave, renamed
sometime after 1959 as State College Boulevard, to Orangethorpe Ave (US 91); later truncated to the new Riverside Freeway, Route 91.
Pre-1964 Legislative Route
In 1959, Chapter 1062 defined LRN 250 as “[LRN 104] near
Forestville to [LRN 1]”. This is present-day proposed Route 181 from
Route 12 near Forestville to US 101.
