[Click here for a key to the symbols used. Some county routes were constructed with federal funds. These routes are indicated as FAP (Federal Aid Primary), FAU (Federal Aid Urban), or FAS (Federal Aid Secondary). If no funding source is shown, no federal funds were used. Note that while some segments seem to have the same attributes, they may differ in the county-local road number assigned to the segment, or in the Caltrans Map Sheet number.]

History and Signage Information History and Signage Information

This route was defined in 1971.

Rerouting of Rte 36 in Susanville; old Rte 36 became Cty Rte A27In July 1964, a relocation of Route 36 in Susanville occurred. The new highway replaced a winding narrow section (now Segments 1 and 2 of County Sign Route A27) constructed in 1931, which had 13 curves and a minimum radius of 500'. Two of the curves were signed for 35 mph. During this work, the existing 2-lane highway was converted to a 64' all paved section, changing to a 40' all paved section outside of the Susanville city limits. The portion of the highway constructed will be the westbound lanes of an ultimate 4 lane freeway. Per CHPW, right of way has been purchased and fenced for ultimate interchanges at the E city limits of Susanville and at the junction of Route 36 and US 395.
