Overall statistics for Route 207:

Pre-1964 Legislative Route Pre-1964 Legislative Route

1944 MapIn 1937, Chapter 15 added the route from “[LRN 190] near Highland northeasterly to [LRN 43]; also from a point on said [LRN 43] near where it crosses Deep Creek, thence northeasterly to and connecting with Forest Service North Side Road in Green Valley”. This was added because the existing road into Big Bear was inadequate for the traffic. It also noted there would be a Federal Grant for the road. The map to the right (from 1944) shows how LRN 207 branched from LRN 190 (Route 30/Route 38 junction).

In 1939, Chapter 473 deleted and recreated the route as [LRN 207].

In 1941, Chapter 142 removed the northern branch.

In 1949, Chapter 1467 added the route that would become LRN 232 as LRN 207: “[LRN 207] is from Sacramento to Marysville; provided, however, that Section 600 of the Streets and Highways Code shall be applicable to the route added to the State Highway System by this section the same as if said route had been added by the Collier-Burns Highway Act of 1947, and the Department of Public Works shall not be required to maintain any portion of said route until the same has been laid out and constructed as a state highway” In 1951, Chapter 1562 renumbered this duplicate [LRN 207] as [LRN 232].

By 1963, this route ran from Route 30 near Highland northeasterly to Route 18. This was signed as Route 30, and ran from the present Route 30/Route 330 junction to Route 18. It is present-day Route 330.
