Post 1964 Signage History
In 1963, Route 228 was defined as the route "Route 86 approximately
two and one-half miles southwest of Brawley to Route 86 approximately two
miles west of Brawley." The routing would roughly have been a continuation
of Imperial Avenue NB to near Kalin Ave, bypassing downtown Brawley. The
routing was never constructed or signed. There is no connection between
this routing and Brawley Bypass later constructed along Route 78
(bypassing downtown Brawley).
Tom Fearer provides some additional information. The routing would have
followed Malan Canal and Sandal Canal west of Brawley. The proposed route
was never mentioned in CHPW.

In 1998, AB 2132, Chapter 877, (September 26, 1998) deleted the routing.

Pre-1964 Legislative Route
In 1947 (1st Ex Sess), Chapter 11 defined LRN 228 as “a connection
between [LRN 5] and [LRN 69] near San Lorenzo”.
In 1959, Chapter 1062 swapped the endpoints and extended the routing to
[LRN 258]: “
[LRN 69] [LRN 258] near San
Lorenzo to [LRN 5] near Hayward”
This is an unsigned portion of Route 238 between I-580 and unconstructed
