construction status for Route 210/Route 30 and Route 56, thanks to
information posted by Don Hagstrom on m.t.r. Updated the status of Route 110 to note a recent, ahem, unauthorized sign modification. Updated
information on the Truckee Bypass, specifically the interchange between
Route 89 and Route 267. Added some clarifications regarding LRN 225 and
its completion status. Added information on the history of Alamont Pass on
I-580. Added information to I-5 on the illegal immegrant crossing sign
(which is one of my more frequently asked questions). Updated the status
of the I-680 bridge to nowhere. Updated the status of the gap closure of
Reworked the Numbering page to include more information on Forest Routes and on the rationale behind California's
signing standards. This involved a major restructuring of these pages.
Added a whole batch of information to the site, in response to
information received as a result of cahighways.org being mentioned in a LA
Times (you can search for the story, but now you have to pay for it. Email
me if you need a copy) article. This included some corrections on I-5
(Ridge Route) and Route 110.

Updated some historical information on highways in Southern California
that have missing links; specifically I-5, I-710, Route 118, Route 56, US 101, Route 170, and Route 134, based on an article in the Los Angeles
Times. If other folks have missing connectors to report, please send me
Incorporated information from the wonderful stuff sent to me by Scott
Oglesby (thanks!), including the following:
[For those unfamiliar with my terminology, LRN stands for
the pre-1964 Legislative Route Number, which typically was different
than the Signed Route Number]
- Information on miles constructed per bond act for the original 68
highways, based on a list of state highways as of December 31, 1924.
This led to changes to the LRN portions for LRN 1 through LRN 68, as
well as updates to the first two pages of the chronology. Doing this
uncovered some discrepancies or unknown information related to the
following LRNs (if you can clear any of these up, please let me know):
- LRN 11. The 1924 table shown 46 miles added in 1909, 10
miles in 1919, and 48 miles by legislative act. However, it is
unclear how this breaks down to actual route segments.
- LRN 13. The 1924 table shows 82 mi authorized
legislatively (the 1901 milage?), 49 mi authorized by the 1909 bond
act, and no allocations later. However, my other information shows
allocations in 1901, 1909, and 1919.
- LRN 14. The 1924 tables shows this as going from Albany
to Martinez. By 1963, this had been cut down to only the portion
from Oakland to Richmond. When was it cut down? It appears the
remainder of the route (probably originally US 40) was already LRN 7.
- LRN 18. The 1924 tables show LRN 18 as being authorized
for 39 miles in 1909, an additional 31 miles in 1915, and 5 miles
legislatively, and running from Merced to LRN 40 (Route 120) near
Sequoia. My other records, however, show LRN 18 as being defined to
run from Merced to Yosemite National Park near El Portal via
Mariposa, and having been entirely defined in 1909. So, there must
have been an additional 36 miles that were allocated and either
deleted or reassigned to a different highway after 1924.
- LRN 19. The 1924 table shows LRN 19 being defined to run
from LRN 9 (US 66) to Riverside for 18 miles in 1909. My records do
show LRN 19 as being defined, at least the portion from US 60 (Route 215) to Route 91 (which really doesn't make sense); this is the old
routing of Route 71 along Garey Avenue.
- LRN 21. The 1924 highway list shows this route as going
from LRN 3 (US 99) near Richvale to Quincy via the Feather River.
The initial 7 miles were allocated in 1909, and the remaining 83
miles in 1919. My other list doesn't agree with this, showing it all
being defined in 1909. Present day, this is portions of Route 162
and Route 70.
- LRN 24. My original information showed LRN 24 being
entirely defined (from Lodi to Route 89) in 1909. The 1924 table
shows it having been defined in two parts: 37 miles in 1909, and an
additional 52 miles legislatively before 1924.
- LRNs 26, 27, 31, 32, and 33. These are skips in numbers
in the 1909 bond issue. It is actually likely that they were
defined, but deleted by 1924. Does anyone have any information?
- LRN 29. The segment defined from Red Bluff to Susanville
is shown as defined in 1935. However, my 1924 table shows the route
definition as of 1924 including the segment, as a 107 mile segment
being defined in 1909. One of these is in error.
- LRN 30. The 1924 tables shows LRN 30 as going from
Oroville to Quincy, but abandoned. This is likely the
Oroville-Quincy highway. However, what I don't know is when it was
abandoned, and when it (LRN 30) was redefined to be a portion of
I-15, as shown on my 1963 map.
- LRN 34. The 1924 highway list shows 34 miles of this
route being defined in 1909, and the remainder (72 miles) being
defined legislatively. Other information has it all being defined in
1919. This is in conflict.
- LRN 35. The 1924 highway lists shows the 31 mile segment
between Peanut and Kuntz having been defined legislatively before
1924. Other information shows this having been defined in 1933. It
is unclear which is correct. This is part of current Route 36.
- LRN 36. The 1924 highway lists shows the route from
Downieville to Mt. Pleasant having been defined legislatively before
1924. Other information shows this having been defined in 1933. It
is unclear which is correct. This is former Route 194.
- LRN 37. The 1924 highway lists show 22 miles of LRN 37 as
having been defined legislatively. However, I don't know when that
milage was defined.
- LRN 43. 38 miles of this was defined legislatively,
seemingly in 1917. I show 13 miles being defined in the 3rd bond act
(1919), but my other list doesn't confirm that. It is part of
present Route 18 and Route 38. Note that the original definition was
from the end of the county pavement in San Bernardino to Bear Lake
- LRN 53. One source I have shows this all being defined in
1919. Another source (the 1924 highway list) shows 21 miles being
defined in 1919, and 34 miles being defined legislatively.
- LRN 69. Although I show this as being constructed in
1923, it is not in the list of state highways authorized by 1924.
- Information on the 1955 Trafficways plan. This resulted in
updates to the pages on the history of San Francisco Freeways, including
a new map. There were also updates to I-280, Route 1, Route 230, Route 82, and Route 87. Note that a number of routes on the Trafficways Plan
don't appear to have legislative route numbers by 1963 (Southern
Crossing, Crosstown Freeway, Mission Freeway), and some of the
Trafficways routings don't agree with LRNs exactly (in particular, the
Serra Freeway portion of Route 1, and the Southern Freeway portion of
I-280 between present-day Route 82 and present-day US 101). However, I
also note that the following LRNs, which were potentially added between
1951 and 1959, were gone by 1963: LRN 211, LRN 215, LRN 217, LRN 219,
LRN 220, LRN 231, LRN 234, LRN 293, and LRN 294. Does anyone have
information on these legislative routes: their routing, when they were
created, and when they were deleted?
- Updates on Route 87. Information on the upcoming completion
of Route 87.
- I-880 Widening Project Information.
Did the usual round of link updates. Added some information on exit
numbering to Route 14 and Route 170. Added some information to the history
of I-8. Added information on the upcoming purchase of the Route 91 toll
lanes by OCTA, based on an article on 4/21/2002 in the Los Angeles Times.
Added information about the Route 14/Route 58 interchange. Updated the
status of Route 90.
Added information on the following recently passed legislation:
- SCR 71: Route 74: California Wildland Firefighters Memorial Highway
(between Lake Elsinore and San Juan Capistrano in the Counties of
Riverside and Orange). To Enrollment. 3/21/2002.
- ACR 111: Route 99: California Highway Patrol Officer James J.
Schumacher, Jr., Memorial Highway. Chapter 32, 4/22/2002.
Added some updates to Route 22 and Route 160. Added some new links.
Updated the Interstate history based on information discovered and posted
by Richard Moeur; in particular, added some information about suffixing on
I-5. Added information on this history of I-105. Fixed some flags and
links on the regional links page. Fixed a city name on the I-15
information. Added historical information on US 40 (on the Route 40 page,
go to the 1928-1963 History section). Added some statistics on HOV lane
use to some S.F. Bay Area pages. Added updated status information to Route 17, Route 262, and Route 237.
As more and more information about Cal-NExUS comes out (the exit numbering plan
for California), added a new category of information for each highway:
Exit Number information, shown with the graphic to the right. Added
additional information from the Cal-NExUS Caltrans page. Added links to the Cal-NExUS pages, except for those highways for which numbers haven't been determined yet (Route 44, Route 57, Route 210, and Route 299; I also note that Route 30 shouldn't have
numbers, Route 14 starts from the wrong number; and Route 710 is missing
at least two exit numbers (Valley Blvd and the 134/210 interchange)).
