State Route 282



Routing

From Route 75 to the Naval Air Station at North Island in Coronado.

 

Post 1964 Signage History

In 1967, Chapter 1483 defined Route 282 as “Route 75 to the Naval Air Station at North Island in Coronado via Fourth Street. This section shall not become operative until the portion of Route 75 from Orange Avenue in Coronado to Route 5 in San Diego via the San Diego-Coronado Toll Bridge is completed and open for traffic.”

In 1968, Chapter 1139 added a segment from Route 75: “(a) The San Diego-Coronado Ferry to Fourth Street via Orange Avenue. The portion of this route described in subdivision (a) shall cease to be a state highway when the San Diego-Coronado Toll Bridge and approaches are completed and open for traffic. (b) Orange Avenue Route 75 to the Naval Air Station at North Island in Coronado.”

In 1970, Chapter 1473 defined Route 285 as “Route 70 on West Street in Portola northwesterly to the north city limits, then to Lake Davis via Humbug Canyon, and then easterly to Grizzly Reservoir via the south shore of the lake.”

According to the Caltrans photolog, the old alignment for Route 285 essentially is exactly the same as existing West Street (in Portola) and Lake Davis Road northeast to Grizzly Road just northeast of the Big Grizzly Creek via Humbug Canyon. The 4.8 miles from Portola were constructed in 1972 (22' traveled way, 3' shoulders, 6" base, and 2" asphaltic concrete). There were problems with the right of way and drainage.
