Post 1964 Signage History
In 1965, Chapter 1769 defined Route 268 as “Route 27 to Route 405,
Mulholland Drive. The commission may allocate from the State Highway Fund
necessary funds for acquisition of right of way and construction of all or
portion of said route when the City of Los Angeles and the County of Los
Angeles have entered into a cooperative agreement with the department
said city and said county each agree to pay at least fifteen percent (15%)
the cost of such acquisition and construction and said city furnishes the
of California without charge plans for said construction, which plans
subject to the approval of the department.”
In the 1967 budget, the CTC approved $8.3 million to construct Mulholland
Drive as a four-lane scenic highway between Topanga Canyon (Route 27) and
Sepulveda Blvd. However, this apparently never happened as much of
Drive between Sepulveda and Topanga is still a dirt highway, closed to
but open to the public as part of the Santa Monica NRA.
In 1970, Chapter 1473 deleted this route.
