Post-1964 Legistlative Route Graphic In 1965, Chapter 1372 defined this route as “Route 80 southwest of Roseville to Route 65 north of Roseville” It was a planned western bypass for Roseville.

The EIR for the Roseville Bypass provides some information as to why Route 256 was never constructed, and was eventually deleted: Route 256, a once adopted route for a west-side bypass of Roseville was rescinded by the California Transportation Commission because of cost and difficulty of crossing the Southern Pacific Switchyard. The route adoption was rescinded in 1976.

This routing was deleted in 1994 by AB 3132, Chapter 1220.
