2023 Changes


December 2023:

This update covers November and December 2023, and perhaps some of January 2024, depending on how long it takes me to finish the last little bits. Before we dive into the updates to the California Highways site, an update on the California Highways: Route by Route podcast. As always, you can keep up with the show at the podcast's forever home at https://www.caroutebyroute.org , the show's page on Spotify for Podcasters, or you can subscribe through your favorite podcaster or via the RSS feeds (CARxR, Spotify for Podcasters) . The following episodes have been posted since the last update:

Turning to the updates to the California Highways pages: Updates were made to the following highways, based on my reading of the (virtual) papers and my research for the podcast in November and December 2023 (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 Tom Fearer(2), Plutonic Panda(3). rte66man(4): Route 1(ℱ), Route 2(ℱ), Route 11(ℱ), I-15(ℱ), Route 20(ℱ), Route 24(ℱ), Route 29(ℱ), Route 31(2), Route 33(ℱ), Route 37(ℱ), Route 46(ℱ), Route 64(ℱ), I-80(ℱ), Route 94(2), Route 99(ℱ), US 101(ℱ), Route 117(2), Route 121(ℱ), Route 154(ℱ), Route 160(ℱ), Capitol Southeast Corridor (Route 148)(4), Route 199(ℱ), Route 222(ℱ), Route 258(ℱ), US 399(ℱ), I-405(ℱ), I-580(ℱ), I-710(3).

Research for Episodes 2.11 and 2.12 of the podcast, on Route 2, resulted in updates to Route 2, US 66, LRN 61, LRN 162, LRN 165, and LRN 188.

Added links to the Metro Dorothy Payne Grey Transportation Library Primary Resources blog's series on Past Visions of Los Angeles’ Transportation Future to the History of Southern California Freeway Development page.

Reviewed the Pending Legislation page, based on the California Legislature site, for bills through 2023-12-25. 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. The State Assembly and Senate are still in their Fall recess, and there are no new bills introduced.

Reviewed the online agenda of the California Coastal Commission. This covered the December meeting. The following items were of interest:

I checked California Transportation Commission page for the results of the December 2023 meeting of the California Transportation Commission. 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:

[ Note: ° indicates items that were below the level of detail for updating the specific route pages; is an indicator used to keep track of what has been added to the pages; indicates the results from the meeting, if the meeting minutes were available. ]

2.1a. STIP/SHOPP Program/Project Amendments

(Related Items under Ref. 2.5b.(1), 2.5b.(2), 2.5b.(3), 2.5d.(1), and 2.5e.(12))

Of these, the following projects/allocation were at the level of interest for the highway pages (general, these are significant new structures or changes, as opposed to repair or rehabilitation in place; additions of bike paths, pedestrian, or complete street elements; or non-visible changes). A lot of the December updates were responses to: (1) the storms in February and March 2023, and the subsequent reassessment of storm damage in August 2023 — rehabilitation of storm damaged pavement; (2) repairs from August wildfire damage and subsequent slides; and (3) vandalism of cables and wiring — which does not rise to the level of interest for the highway pages. If the item is more long-lasting or significant (such as the slides in the Big Sur area), then they are noted. “” indicates phase not programmed.

(2) SHOPP Amendment for Approval: Eequest to: Add one new project into the 2022 SHOPP. (2.1a.(2a)). 08-Riv-15 38.95/39.4. PPNO 08-3021L; ProjID 0823000025; EA 1N610.

October 2023:

This update covers September and October, and perhaps some of November 2023. Before we dive into the updates to the California Highways site, an update on the California Highways: Route by Route podcast. As always, you can keep up with the show at the podcast's forever home at https://www.caroutebyroute.org , the show's page on Spotify for Podcasters, or you can subscribe through your favorite podcaster or via the RSS feeds (CARxR, Spotify for Podcasters) .

Turning to the updates to the California Highways pages: Updates were made to the following highways, based on my reading of the (virtual) papers and my research for the podcast in September and October 2023 (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).

While doing research for the California Highways: Route by Route podcast, in addition to the changes to specific route pages, I identified some useful broader resources. Some of these used to be on Caltrans pages, but were lost during the accessibility remediation, if not before. Through my research, and with the help of Anneliese Agren(2), these have been made available on this website as indicated:

Added some new resources to the Maps pageAuto Club of California Strip Maps (1916-1920), David Smoller Map Collection (2201 maps covering primarily California, including Auto Club maps). I also received a pointer to a San Diego specific index of maps in the San Diego library, but couldn't find the links to the maps themselves. I was also provided a resource for dating old Auto Club maps. Thanks to Vic Turner for finding these resources. Adding a link to USGS Topoview.

Reviewed the Pending Legislation page, based on the California Legislature site, for bills through 2023-10-15. Although this was about a month before posting these updates, it was sufficient to catch what the governor signed in the 2023 legislative session. New bill introduction will be captured in the next update. 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 (or veto) of the following bills and resolutions:

Reviewed the online agenda of the California Coastal Commission. This covered the September, October, and November meetings. There were no items of interest to the highway pages.

I checked California Transportation Commission page for the results of the October 2023 meeting of the California Transportation Commission. 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:

A lot of the October updates were response to three things: (1) the atmospheric river storms in Winter 2022-2023 — mud slides, failed culverts, sinkholes, debris basis cleanout; (2) Hurricane Hillary, which hit in Summer 2023; and (3) vandalism of cables and wiring — which does not rise to the level of interest for the highway pages.

August 2023:

This update covers June, July, and August 2023. Before we dive into the updates to the California Highways site, an update on the California Highways: Route by Route podcast. Episodes are regularly posted around the middle of the month. You can keep up with the show at the podcast's forever home at https://www.caroutebyroute.org , the show's page on Spotify for Podcasters, or you can subscribe through your favorite podcaster or via the RSS feeds (CARxR, Spotify for Podcasters) . The following episodes have been posted since the last update:

Turning to the updates to the California Highways pages: Updates were made to the following highways, based on my reading of the (virtual) papers in June, July, and August 2023 (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).

Added a new link to the list of state highway websites, as AARoads has added a page for Alaska. As a reminder, if you have a highway page for a state, and its not on the list of regional highways, please let me know.

Added a reference to the Gribblenation Blog on the 1959 Era White shields to the California Numbering page.

Reviewed the Pending Legislation page, based on the California Legislature site, for bills through 2023-09-10. 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 (or veto) of the following bills and resolutions:

Reviewed the online agenda of the California Coastal Commission. This covered the June, July, and August meetings:

As such, the following items were of interest:

Reviewed the Pending Legislation page, based on the California Legislature site, for bills through 2023-05-28. 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. We are still in the early days of a new legislative session, so at this point bills mostly are in committee. Welcome to the 2023-2024 session, folks.

Reviewed the online agenda of the California Coastal Commission. This covered the March, April, and May meetings:

I checked California Transportation Commission page for the results of the March and May 2023 meetings of the California Transportation Commission. 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:

A lot of the March updates were response to the series of atmospheric river storm — mud slides, failed culverts, sinkholes, debris basis cleanout — which does not rise to the level of interest for the highway pages. If the item is more long-lasting or significant (such as the slides in the Big Sur area), then they are noted. “” indicates phase not programmed.

February 2023:

This update covers January and February 2023. Before we dive into the updates to the California Highways site, an update on the California Highways: Route by Route podcast. Episodes are regularly posted around the middle of the month. You can keep up with the show at the podcast's forever home at https://www.caroutebyroute.org , the show's page on anchor.fm, or you can subscribe through your favorite podcaster or via the RSS feeds (CARxR, Anchor.FM) . The following episodes have been posted since the last update:

Turning to the updates to the California Highways pages: Updates were made to the following highways, based on my reading of the (virtual) papers in January and February 2023 (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.

Added links for maps and GIS resources to the main Maps page. Hat tips to Nathan Edgars II (in an email from 2008 that I just got to), as well as the January episode of California Route by Route. Updated the history of Sacramento with a 1958 planning map, courtesy of Joel Windmiller.

Reviewed the Pending Legislation page, based on the California Legislature site, for bills through 2023-02-24. 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. This is the start of a new legislative session, so at this point mostly bills are being introduced. Welcome to the 2023-2024 session, folks.

Reviewed the online agenda of the California Coastal Commission. There was no January meeting, and no items of interest from the February meeting.

I checked California Transportation Commission page for the results of the January 2023 meeting of the California Transportation Commission. 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:
