Post-1964 Legistlative Route Graphic 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.
