From Route 101 at Hopland to Route 29 near Lakeport.
This segment (19 mi) was LRN 16, defined in 1909, and appears not to have been signed before 1964.
In July 2009, the CTC approved relinquishment of right of way in the county of Mendocino along Route 175 in Old Hopland at East Side Road (~ MEN 1.136), consisting of a reconstructed and relocated county road.
In March 2011, the CTC approved funding a number of projects on this route. Near Hopland from the Junction of Route 101 to 0.6 mile east of Mendocino/Lake County Line (~ MEN 0.064 to LAK 0.600), Route 175 will have 21.0 lane miles of roadway rehabilitated by overlaying with asphalt concrete to improve the ride quality, prevent further deterioration of the traveling surface, minimize costly roadway repairs, and extend the pavement service life. In Lake County, near Lakeport, from 4.9 miles east of Mendocino/Lake County Line to Route 175/Route 29 Junction; also near Kelseyville from Route 175/Route 29 Junction to Route 175/Route 29 Junction in Middletown there will be a project to rehabilitate 46.2 lane miles of roadway by overlaying with asphalt concrete to improve the ride quality, prevent further deterioration of the traveling surface, minimize costly roadway repairs, and extend the pavement service life.

From Route 29 near Kelseyville to Route 29 at Middletown.
In 1963, this segment was defined as “(b) Route 29 to Route 29 near Middletown.” This reflected Route 29 being assigned to a new routing onto what had been LRN 243 and Route 53/LRN 49 between Lower Lake south to Middletown, and the old routing becoming Route 175.
Note: Between Lakeport and Kelseyville, the route is multiplexed with Route 29.
This segment was originally signed as part of the original 1934 definition of Route 29. It was LRN 89, defined in 1933. Route 29 presently takes a direct route over LRN 243, defined in 1959 between Lower Lake and Kelseyville.
In March 2017, the CTC amended the SHOPP to include $2,450,000 in funding on Route 175 near Middletown, from 0.2 mile east of Grouse Springs Road to 0.1 mile east of Socrates Mine Road (1-Lak-175 17.4/23.6, between Adams and Hoberg). Remove slide debris, repair drainage systems, reconstruct roadway, and conduct further geotechnical investigations of slope and roadway settlement. This was the result of damage from the Winter 2017 storms.
Kelsey Creek Bridge No. 14-0044 (LAK 19.48)
In June 2019, the CTC also approved the following SHOPP
scope amendment: 01-Lak-29 50.8 PPNO 3130 ProjID 0118000172. Route 29 Near
Upper Lake, at Robinson Creek Bridge No. 14 -0030 (PM 50.82); also on
Route 175 at Kelsey Creek Bridge No. 14-0044 (PM 19.48); . Widen
bridge and upgrade bridge rails at Robinson Creek Bridge and replace existing Kelsey Creek Bridge.
Remove Morrison Creek Bridge from project EA 0E080/PPNO 01-3098 and add to
this project. The need for cultural analysis delayed the Morrison Creek
Bridge delivery schedule and it now better aligns with this project.
Further cost increases are associated with additional piles, retaining
wall, and required environmental mitigation. Updated total cost: $10,833K.

In August 2020, the CTC approved for future
consideration of funding a project is located on Route 20 (01-Lak-20, PM
16.81), Route 29 (01-Lak-29, PM 50.82), and Route 175 (01-Lak-175, PM
19.48) at various locations in Lake County. The Department proposes to
widen and upgrade bridge rails at Robinson Creek Bridge and Morrison
Creek Bridge, and replace existing Kelsey Creek Bridge. This project is
fully funded and is currently programmed in the 2020 State Highway
Operation Protection Program (SHOPP) for a total of $14,076,000 which
includes Construction (capital and support) and Right of Way (capital and
support). Construction is estimated to begin in Fiscal Year 2021-2022. The
scope, as described for the preferred alternative, is consistent with the
project scope programmed by the Commission in the 2020 SHOPP.

CTC approved the following financial allocation: $2,220,000 for PS&E;
$223,000 for R/W Support. 01-Lak-29 PM 50.8. PPNO 3130 ProjID 0118000172

Lake 175-Middletown Shoulders
In August 2017, the CTC approved for future consideration of funding 01-Lak-175, PM R25/27.5 Lak 175-Middletown Shoulders: a safety improvement project in Lake County that will widen roadway shoulders on Route 175 near the town of Middletown. The project will be funded from State Highway Operation and Protection Program (SHOPP) funds and is programmed in the 2016 SHOPP for an estimated $21.1 million Construction (capital and support) and Right of Way (capital and support). Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in Fiscal Year 2018-19. The scope, as described for the preferred alternative, is consistent with the project scope programmed by the Commission in the 2016 SHOPP. A copy of the MND has been provided to Commission staff. The project will result in less than significant impacts to the environment after mitigation. The following resource areas may be impacted by the project: aesthetics, agriculture, biological resources, public services, recreation, and cultural resources. Avoidance and minimization measures will reduce any potential effects on the environment. These measures include, but are not limited to, access to agricultural parcels shall be maintained during construct, all disturbed areas shall be revegetated and restored, assumed cultural sites will be protected by the implementation of an Environmentally Sensitive Area Action Plan, and pre-construction roosting bat surveys shall be performed by a qualified biologist. As a result, an MND was completed for this project.
In August 2018, the CTC approved $14,044,000 in
SHOPP Safety Resolution G-03-10 Delegated Allocations for Lake 01-Lak-175
R25.0/27.5: Route 175 Near Middletown, from 0.1 mile east of Putah Creek
Bridge to Dry Creek Bridge. Outcome/Output: Improve safety by widening
shoulders, installing rumble strips, improving roadside clear recovery
zone, and extending existing culverts. This project will reduce the number
and severity of collisions.

Signed Route 175 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 175 between 1934 and 1964.
Overall statistics for Route 175:
In 1933, Chapter 767 defined the route "[LRN 60] near Hermosa Beach to [LRN 43] in Santa Ana Canyon via Artesia Ave" as part of the state highway system. In 1935, this route was added to the highway code as LRN 175 with that definition.
This route ran from Route 1 near Hermosa Beach to Route 18/US 91 in Santa Ana Canyon, generally along Artesia and Orangethorpe, turning at Imperial Highway. It later became the Riverside Freeway. This is former Route 14, also known as US 91; it is present-day Route 91.
