This was LRN 261, defined in 1959.

Status Status

This routing is unconstructed. According to one Caltrans document, the traversable route is French Camp Road (San Joaquin County Sign Route J9). However, one Caltrans map makes the route appear to be Arch-Airport Rd. In 1983, San Joaquin County passed resolution R-83-1461 for procedures to be followed to include French Camp Road in the state highway system as Route 234 and Eight-Mile Road as Route 235. On November 29, 1993, San Joaquin County adopted Eight-Mile Road as an arterial highway and dropped interest in it as a state highway. They have not shown an opinion on French Camp Road. Caltrans has no plans to assume maintenance of the traversable route.

According to the 2013 Traversable Highways report, this is French Camp Road. No plans and no recommendations.

Freeway Freeway

[SHC 253.1] Entire route. Added to the Freeway and Expressway system in 1959.

In 1953, Chapter 1700 defined LRN 234 as:

The commission, in determining said route, shall consider military necessities and recommendations appropriate federal authorities.

The commission shall allocate from time to time as federal funds, other than regular federal aid apportionments, are made available as required in this section from the State Highway Fund the sum of twenty million dollars ($20,000,000), for the construction of said route. Such money shall be made available in equal parts in the five fiscal years next succeeding the effective date of this section to the extent that such federal funds are available for matching purposes in each of such years.

In 1957, Chapter 1911 deleted this LRN. It appears to never have been constructed, nor a sign route number assigned.
