Post 1964 Signage History
In 1965, Chapter 1372 defined this route as “Route 80
Roseville to Route 65 north of Roseville”
The EIR for the Roseville Bypass provides some information as to why
Route 256 was never constructed, as was eventually deleted: Route 256, a once
route for a west-side bypass of Roseville was rescinded by the California
Transportation Commission because of cost and difficulty of crossing the
Southern Pacific Switchyard. The route adoption was rescinded in 1976.
(Source: Route 65 Roseville Bypass Final EIR)
This routing was deleted in 1994 by AB 3132, Chapter 1220.
