Naming

Route A1 was proclaimed the William D. McIntosh Highway in 2000. It was named after William McIntosh, the county's first director of public works. Walnut Creek Resident William David McIntosh died peacefully surrounded by loved ones on August 11, 2010. "Bill" was born to William and Maud McIntosh in Portola, CA, March 24, 1924. He joined the U.S. Navy stationed on the USS St. Paul, serving during both WWII and Korea. At the end of WWII he married Dorothy "Dixie" Morgan from Scranton, PA, settled in Susanville and raised two daughters. Bill began his career with the Lassen County Road Department on the survey crew in 1946. He retired in 1987 as the Director of Public Works. During his distinguished 41-year career, he brought unique vision to local, state and national public works. He headed development of the County Route Marker Program adopted nationally in 1967. Lassen County received the first number, "A1", for the Eagle Lake Road. In 2000, A1 was officially proclaimed the "William D. McIntosh Highway." Bill rose through the ranks of the County Engineers Association of California (CEAC) and the National Association of County Engineers (NACE). Among his many honors, CEAC created the "William D. McIntosh Lifetime Achievement Award" and NACE named him "Rural County Engineer of the Year". Bill created the CLODS California's Loyal Order of Dedicated Servants (CLODS) and the NFL (NACE's Former Leaders). In 2002, Bill and Dixie moved to the Bay Area. His beloved Dixie passed away in 2004. Bill's last residence was in Rossmoor, CA where he built more friendships and enjoyed music, movies, sports and theater with his dear friend Betty. He was an avid fan of the SF Giants and 49ers.

    In December 2009, the CTC approved for future funding a project that will reconst approximately 3,140 linear feet of Road A15, also known as Portola McLears Road. The existing pavement width varies and low or no shoulders are typical along the length of the project. The pavement is in poor condition with severe cracking, rutting and pot holes. The proposed reconstruction will include widening the road to a 24 ft paved traveled way, adding 6 shoulders on each side, reconstructing 5 driveway/road approaches, and other improvements. The project is estimated to cost $ 2,943,000 and is fully programmed in the STIP. Construction is estimated to begin in FY 2009/10. On October 6, 2009, the City provided confirmation that the preferred alternative set forth in the final environmental document is consistent with the project scope of work programmed by the Commission.
