Pre 1964 Signage History Pre 1964 Signage History

This route was proposed LRN 260, defined in 1959.

Tom Fearer notes: "The planned route of LRN 260 first appears on the 1960 State Highway City Insert and is shown north of Stockton intersecting Lower Sacramento Street and Thorton Street heading west from US 99/US 50/LRN 4 to LRN 238 (future I-5). When LRN 260 was initially designated it wasn't long before Signed County Sign Route J8 had been applied over Hammer Lane west from US 99/US 50 to Thorton Street in 1960. County Sign Route J8 continued northward onto a terminus in south Sacramento. At the time LRN 260 and County Sign Route J8 had been created Hammer Lane only existed west from US 99 to Thorton Street. By the 1964 State Highway Renumbering LRN 260 had been re-designated as part of the future Route 235."

Status Status

This routing is unconstructed. The traversable route is Eight Mile Road according to one Caltrans document, but according to a Caltrans map, it may be Hammer lane J-8. The county is placing the road into a state of good repair. 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. Caltrans has no plans to assume maintenance of the traversable route. There is no schedule for Caltrans to assume maintenance.

According to the 2013 Traversable Highways report, this is Eight Mile Road. County arterial, no further plans.

Pre-1964 Legislative Route Pre-1964 Legislative Route

In 1953, Chapter 1787 defined LRN 233 as:

  1. High Street, Oakland, between [LRN 69] and [LRN 5]
  2. [LRN 227] near the intersection of Park Boulevard, Oakland to [LRN 75] near Lafayette

In 1957, Chapter 52 renumbered this definition as LRN 235.

In 1957, Chapter 1911 rewrote the definition of (a): "(a) A connection with [LRN 69] near 42d Avenue to a connection with [LRN 5] near High Street in Oakland"

In 1959, Chapter 1062 extended the route again by adding (c): “[LRN 75] near Lafayette to [LRN 75], described in Section 375(a), near Concord”

This route was signed as follows:

  1. From LRN 69 (Route 17; present-day I-880) near 42nd Avenue to LRN 5 (US 50; present-day I-580) near High Street in Oakland.

    This is part of Route 77.

  2. From LRN 5 (US 50; present-day I-580) in Oakland to LRN 75 (Route 24) near Lafayette.

    This appears to correspond to a proposed route for Route 77 between I-580 and Route 4. It appears to have run along 13th Avenue and Park Blvd, along Skyline Road, and Morago Road into Lafayette.

  3. From LRN 75 (Route 24) near Lafayette to LRN 75 (Route 21; present-day I-680) near Concord.

    This also appears to be no longer part of the state highway system; it appears to have run along Pleasant Hill Road and Taylor Blvd.
