2021 Changes


August 2021:

Blah blah blah introduction. Perhaps I should go with that.

Seriously, though. We're at the end of Summer 2021, and the best thing I can say is that we're not having to deal with a Presidential campaign again. COVID is still here, however, impacting travel. I did get some travel in over my summer, with drives to Los Osos, Scottsdale, and Las Vegas, and exploration of the Route 166 corridor and the Route 58 corridor between I-15 and Route 14. I got to see the construction they are doing S of Mojave on Route 14, and got to kill off a load of podcasts. Hopefully you've had a safe summer. As always: Please make sure you are vaccinated, and please continue to wear masks. Neither complete eliminates risk, but they are both key factors in reducing risk to an acceptable level. As someone who has been working in Cybersecurity for over 35 years, I understand how being risk adverse can blind you to the importance of doing the simple things to reduce risk. Just as with our highways, our goals should be to reduce the risks whereever we can.

On to the updates.

Updates were made to the following highways, based on my reading of the papers from the last week of May 2021 through the end of August 2021 (which are posted to the roadgeeking category at the "Observations Along The Road" and to the California Highways Facebook group) as well as any backed up email changes. I also reviewed the the AAroads forum (Ꜳ). This resulted in changes on the following routes, with credit as indicated [my research(ℱ), contributions of information or leads (via direct mail or ꜲRoads) from Anthony R. Brooks(1), Tom Fearer(2), Brian Nordon(3),  Tony Ortega(4), Scott Parker(5), Joe Rouse(6), Chris Sampang(7), Carol Stephens(8): Route 1(ℱ,2), Route 4(ℱ), Marine Route 5 (M-5)(ℱ), I-5(ℱ,2), Route 11(ℱ), Route 16(2), Route 17(ℱ), Route 18(ℱ),  Route 25(ℱ), Route 29(ℱ), Route 33(2), Route 35(ℱ), Route 36(ℱ), Route 37(ℱ), Route 41(ℱ,2), Route 46(ℱ,2), US 50(ℱ,2), Route 58(6,5), Route 71(ℱ), Route 74(ℱ),  Route 77(ℱ,1), I-80(ℱ,2), Route 88(ℱ), Route 91(ℱ,1,4), Route 99(ℱ,2), US 101(ℱ,2), Route 110(ℱ), Route 113(2), Route 121(ℱ), Route 132(ℱ), Route 135(ℱ), Route 136(3),  Route 140(ℱ), LRN 148(ℱ), Route 152(ℱ), Route 156(ℱ), Route 166(ℱ), Route 174(ℱ), Route 176(ℱ), Route 187(ℱ), Route 207(ℱ), Route 247(ℱ), Route 249(8), Route 273(ℱ), Route 275(2), Former US 399(2),  US 395(ℱ), I-405(ℱ), I-580(ℱ),  Marine Route 580(ℱ), I-680(ℱ), I-710(ℱ), County Sign Route A13(ℱ), County Sign Route 66(7).

Updated the links to the Cal-NexUS pages and the highway exits, because Caltrans went and moved things again(ℱ). Updated the El Camino Real Bells page to reflect the removal of the El Camino Real bell from downtown Santa Cruz, and the rationale therefore(ℱ). Updated the Statistics page to better reflect the shortness of Route 77(1).

Marine Highway SystemAdded information on the National Marine Highway System(ℱ):
(Source: CleanTechnica, 6/22/2021; US DOT Maritime Administration: National Marine Highways, 6/2021)

In California waters, there are two routes: Route 5 (M-5) and Route 580 (M-580). The US Department of Transportation has a special webpage all about this system of marine highways, complete with a map of the system. The system’s highways are numbered the same as nearby Interstate Highways from which they could relieve congestion. The DOT Maritime Administration (MARAD)'s Marine Highway Program has one major goal: expand the use of America's navigable waters. They closely with public and private organizations to:

The Marine Highway system currently includes 26 "Marine Highway Routes" that serve as extensions of the surface transportation system. Each all-water route is designated by the Secretary and offers relief to landside corridors suffering from traffic congestion, excessive air emissions or other environmental challenges. For the highways in California, a section was added to the appropriate route page providing information on the Marine highway route.

Reviewed the Pending Legislation page, based on the California Legislature site. As usual, I recommend to every Californian that they visit the legislative website regularly and see what their legis-critters are doing. As many people are unfamiliar with how the legislature operates (and why there are so many "non-substantive changes" and "gut and amend" bills), I've added the legislative calendar to the end of the Pending Legislation page. Noted the passage of the following:

I checked California Transportation Commission page for the results of the California Transportation Commission meetings from June through August 2021. As always, note that I tend not to track items that do not impact these pages — i.e., pavement rehabilitation or replacement, landscaping, drainage, culverts, roadside facilities, charging stations, or other things that do not impact the routing or history, unless they are really significant. As such, the following items were of interest:

May 2021:

What a long, strange year it has been. In March 2020, I saw my last live theatre for over a year: Passion at Boston Court. I had just returned from a trip to Madison WI to visit my daughter. We were just starting to worry about the Novel Coronavirus, with no idea of the long haul in front of us. Working from home had just begun. We were at the start of the 2020 election year, long before we had any inkling that the losing candidate would encourage an attack on Congress (which many consider to be an attempted insurrection) to overturn the election result and prevent Congress from doing their congressional duty. A long, long, strange year.

On the highway page front: I was continuing work on the major site redesign and rework, which was coming up in May. That behind me, updates preceded apace. I think the new site is fast. This year, due to some problems, I got rid of one of the plugins on the Wordpress side of the site, and suddenly that became faster and more reliable. I may be getting back into the blogging side of the equation.

As for 2021: Let's hope for a return to the new normal. We have a vaccine, and hopefully we'll all be vaccinated by the summer—and so we might start to be able to do events and roadtrips again. We'll likely still want to wear masks, as there will be those who refuse the vaccines, or for whom the vaccine is not 100% preventative. We have a new President, who is behaving a lot more…presidential. I don't have major site changes planned. The hope for 2021 is: a new normal, and an uneventful new normal.  כן יהי רצון Ken Yehi Ratzon—Let It Be So.

I do want to share one thing I saw going through the CTC Minutes that didn't make it into these pages. The following was amended into the SHOPP at the May meeting, and is $730,000 of your tax dollars at work:

May 2021 CTC Agenda Item 2.1a.(1a): 05-Mon-1 PM 10.5. Route 1 Near Gorda, at the Willow Springs Maintenance Station at 72115 Cabrillo Highway (Route 1). Repair failed electrical system. In January 2021, a microwave oven caught fire while not in use at the maintenance station employee housing facility.  A follow-up investigation of this incident, an ongoing low-voltage issue, and a history of damaged electrical appliances has identified numerous safety related issues due to undersized wiring, corrosion of components, long undersized wire runs, and all power runs connected to a ineffective single main breaker. This project will remove existing electrical components, install new pull boxes, conduit, wiring, and service panels.

On to the updates.

Updates were made to the following highways, based on my reading of the papers from January through May 2021 (which are posted to the roadgeeking category at the "Observations Along The Road" and to the California Highways Facebook group) as well as any backed up email changes. I also reviewed the the AAroads forum (Ꜳ). This resulted in changes on the following routes, with credit as indicated [my research(ℱ), contributions of information or leads (via direct mail or ꜲRoads) from Ꜳ GaryA(2), Michael Ballard(3), Ꜳ Bing101(4), Shirleigh Brannon(5), Ꜳ DT Composer(6), Tom Fearer(7), Ꜳ HeyNow415(8), Cameron Kaiser(9), Rick Kelly(10), Ꜳ Kniwt(11), Scott Parker(12),  Francesca Smith(13), Chris Sampang(14), and Joel Windmiller(15): Route 1(ℱ,7,12), Route 4(7), I-5(ℱ), I-8(ℱ), Route 9(ℱ), I-10(ℱ), Route 12(ℱ), Route 13(7), I-15(ℱ,7,12), Route 16(7), Route 20(7), Route 24(7,11), Route 25(ℱ), Route 29(ℱ), Route 37(ℱ), I-40(7), US 40(ℱ,8), Route 41(ℱ), Route 42(ℱ),  Route 46(ℱ), Route 47(ℱ), US 48(10), Route 49(ℱ), US 50(ℱ,7,15), Route 55(ℱ), Route 57(ℱ), Route 62(ℱ), Route 67(ℱ),  Route 70(ℱ),  Route 74(ℱ), Route 75(ℱ), Route 78(ℱ), Route 79(ℱ), I-80(ℱ), Route 84(ℱ), Route 86(ℱ), Route 90(ℱ), US 91/ Route 91(ℱ,7,12), Route 92(ℱ), Route 99/US 99(ℱ,3,7,15), US 101(ℱ,2,7,12,6), I-105(ℱ,13), Route 108(ℱ), Route 111(ℱ), Route 118(ℱ), Route 120(ℱ), Route 123(4), LRN 125(7), Route 128(ℱ,7,8), Route 132(ℱ), Route 134(ℱ), Route 135(ℱ), Route 136(9),  Route 138(ℱ), Route 140(ℱ), Route 143(ℱ), Route 148(ℱ), Route 152(7,14), Route 154(ℱ), LRN 174(ℱ), Route 174(ℱ), Route 198(7), Route 204(7), I-210(ℱ), Route 222(ℱ,7), Route 229(7), Route 236(ℱ), Route 241(ℱ), Route 254(ℱ), Route 263(ℱ),  I-280(ℱ), Route 282(ℱ), I-305(ℱ,7), Route 371(ℱ), I-380(ℱ), US 399(7),  I-405(ℱ), US 466(7,12), I-505(ℱ), I-580(ℱ), I-605(ℱ), I-680(ℱ), I-710(ℱ), I-980(ℱ), County Sign Route G8(7) .

For those interested, there is an interview with me in Caltrans News 2021 № 1.

At the request of a long-time friend and contributor to this site(5), captured the “lost” Caltrans series of pages about the 50th Anniversary of the start of the Interstate system that occurred in 2005/2006. These pages were published on the Caltrans site in 2005, and disappeared during a site rework in 2019 (likely because they were felt to be outdated). But for those of us here at California Highways, we love that history—and so we have preserved them. Please contact Caltrans if you want to use the pictures, and say you saw it on the Wayback Machine (wink).

Added some information on the earliest days of this website to the 1996 and before changes page. Ronald J Hall at Caltrans sent me a correction for the statistics page regarding the highest point on Route 270.

Added some more FAQs to address the emails I constantly get about whether I accept sponsored or guest posts (no), whether I'll add a link from a page a lawyer has set up regarding tourism, traffic safety, or accident prevention (no), or whether I'll go back and update or add references to a blog post older than 6 months (no).

Reviewed the Pending Legislation page, based on the new California Legislature site. As usual, I recommend to every Californian that they visit the legislative website regularly and see what their legis-critters are doing. As many people are unfamiliar with how the legislature operates (and why there are so many "non-substantive changes" and "gut and amend" bills), I've added the legislative calendar to the end of the Pending Legislation page. A new legislative session started after the November elections; all of the 2019-2020 bills are dead. So far, it is way too early for any bills to have made it out of their house of origin into the other house, let alone to the Governor's desk.

I checked California Transportation Commission page for the results of the California Transportation Commission meetings from January through May 2021. As always, note that I tend not to track items that do not impact these pages — i.e., pavement rehabilitation or replacement, landscaping, drainage, culverts, roadside facilities, charging stations, or other things that do not impact the routing or history, unless they are really significant. As such, the following items were of interest:
