🛣 Changes to the California Highways Website – Aug/Sep/Oct 2020

This period is shorter one, focused on update. This update includes the August and September headlines, the actions of the legislature, and the August 2020 CTC meeting. Of particular interest are the legislative actions, which saw the authorization of relinquishment of a number of routes, but NOT the passage of the bill related to Route 241.

Updates were made to the following highways, based on my reading of the papers (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(1), contributions of information or leads (via direct mail or ꜲRoads) from Ted Cabeen(2), Tom Fearer(3), Mark Harrigan(4): Route 1(1), Route 2(1), Route 4(3), I-5(1), I-8(1), Route 9(3), I-10(1), Route 14(1), Route 22(1), Route 23(1), Route 24(1), Route 29(1), Route 36(1), Route 44(3), US 50(1), Route 55(1),  Route 60(1), Route 64(1), Route 75(1), I-80(1), Route 84(1), Route 85(1), Route 91(1), Route 99(1,3), US 101(1), I-105(1), Route 118(1), Route 120(1,3), Route 121(1), Route 125(1), Route 138/HDC(1), Route 151(3), Route 152(1), Route 154(1), Route 168(2), Route 170(1), Route 175(3), Route 180(3), Route 187(1), Route 190(3), Route 192(1), Route 197(1), Route 198(1), US 199(1), Route 207(3), Route 216(1), Route 236(3), Route 252(1), Route 253(1,3), Route 273(3), I-405(1), Route 440(3), Route 480(1), I-580(1), I-605(1), I-680(1,4), I-710(1), I-805(1), I-880(1), County Sign Route A27(1).

Added Carolina Crossroads to the Regional Routes pages. Updated information on the Trails section top page about the history of the National Old Trails Road. Added more information on Scenic Highway designations to the State Highway Types page. Added links to the AASHTO Route Numbering Archive to the Interstate HistoryUS Highway Numbering, and Interstate Highway numbering pages.

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. Noted the passage (or took particular notice) of the following bills:
