No current routing.
Post 1964 Signage History
In 1963, Route 157 was defined as "Route 805 near San Diego and
south of Route 94 to Route 125 near Sweetwater Reservoir.".
In 1972, Chapter 1216 relaxed the routing: "Route 805 near San Diego
south of Route 94 to Route 125 near Sweetwater Reservoir."
In 1994, the routing (from Route 805 near Ocean View Boulevard near San
Diego, through the Paradise Hills to Route 125 near Sweetwater Reservoir)
was deleted per AB 3132, Chapter 1220. The route was added to the state
highway system in 1959. A routing was adopted in 1962, but it was
rescinded locally by SANDAG (San Diego Association of Governments, the
regional planning agency) in 1974, and deleted from the state highway
system 20 years later. The right-of-way purchased for the eastern portion
of the route was sold in the mid-1970s. Together with Route 252 (the
Southcrest or El Toyon Freeway) and I-5, the route would have provided
direct access from East San Diego County to downtown.
Pre 1964 Signage History
This was proposed LRN 285, defined in 1959. It was never signed.
Route 157 was not defined as part of the initial state signage of routes
in 1934. It is unclear what (if any) route was signed as Route 157 between
1934 and 1964.
This route would have been named the San Miguel Freeway.
Originally to have been freeway; later deleted from SHC 253.1.

Pre-1964 Legislative Route
In 1933, Chapter 767 defined the route from "[LRN 4] near Tunnel Station
to [LRN 9] near San Fernando" as a state highway. It was added to the
highway code in 1935 as LRN 157 with that routing. This was the route from
US 99 (I-5) to Route 118, and was the eventual routing of Route 210
between I-5 and Route 118.
