This was LRN 85, defined in 1933. It appears to have not been signed before 1969.

North Bank Road along the Mad River existed before it was added to the State Highway System.  North Bank Road can be seen as a connecting road in the vicinity of Arcata between LRN 1 (future US 101) east to LRN 20 (future US 299/Route 299) on the 1917 California State Automobile Association Map of California. It was added to the State Highway System during 1933 as LRN 85, and can be seen aligned between US 101/LRN 1 and US 299/LRN 20 on the 1935 California Division of Highways Map of Humboldt County.
