Labor Day weekend. A traditional time for me to do computer updates, be it writing code while on vacation in Hawaii listening to the Jerry Lewis Telethon when I was in college, or doing updates in the early morning while on vacation (while looking at I-15 in front of me, near one of the most spectacular bridges on that route). Hopefully, these will take less time than the last batch. [Update: They didn’t, which is why I’m finishing things post-vacation at my desk, listening to the music I picked up on vacation.]
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. This resulted in changes on the following routes, with credit as indicated [my research(1), contributions of information or leads (via direct mail) from Mike Ballard(2), Coatimundi @ AAroads(3), Concrete Bob @ AAroads(4), DTComposer @ AARoads(5), Jonathan Ledbetter(6), Sparker @ AARoads(7), Scott Presnel (ACSAMapCollector) @ AARoads(8), Quillz @ AARoads(9), Max Rockatansky at AAroads(10), Joe Rouse at AAroads(11), and Joel Windmiller(12): Route 1(7,8,5), Route 2(1,8), Route 4(1), I-5(1,7,11), I-8(6), I-10(1), Route 11(1), Route 14(2,11), I-15(1,7), Route 17(1), Route 29(1), Route 37(1), LRN 43(7), Route 45(7), Route 49(1,11), US 50(11), Route 58(7,11), Route 59(7), Route 65(7,4), Former US 66(1,7), Route 76(1), I-80(1,12), Route 85(1), US 97(6), Former US 99 and current Route 99(1,7), US 101(1,7,9), Route 102(7,11), Route 107(7), Route 116(1), Route 120(1,7), Route 140(7), LRN 161(7), Route 167(7), Route 172(7), Route 180(7), LRN 190(7), I-210(7), Route 262(7), Route 263(1), Route 271(7), Route 276(3), US 299/Route 299(1,10), Route 371(1), US 395(1,2), I-405(1,8), I-580(1), I-710(1), Riverside County Route R2(7,10). I’ll note there were some particular good background information posts on AAroads — I’ve hopefully been able to capture that information so it isn’t lost into the void (with attribution, of course).
Added a link in the FAQ to California’s Postmile Service, an interesting site to map postmiles to geographic locations. Hat tip to Jonathan Ledbetter for the link.
Noted a post by Quillz on AAroads on 7/16/2016 that provided the sign specifications for the 1934 “bear” shield signage. This was put on the pre-Interstate numbering page.
Added some observations on the chronology of LRNs from Sparker at AAroads.
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. Right now, we’re at the point everything for this legislative session has been sent to the Governor for signature. A large number of bills — in particular, a large number of Senate naming resolutions — were on the Governor’s desk at the time of this update, so check the Pending Legislation page and follow the link to the bill to see if they have been signed (I’ll catch those in the next update). Noted the passage/veto of the following bills and resolutions (for some of these, I’ve highlighted key phrases in red):
- AB 51 (Quirk) Vehicles: motorcycles: lane splitting.
(1) Existing law requires, whenever a roadway has been divided into 2 or more clearly marked lanes for traffic in one direction, that a vehicle shall be driven as nearly as practical entirely within a single lane and shall not be moved from the lane until the movement can be made with reasonable safety.This bill would define “lane splitting” as driving a motorcycle, that has 2 wheels in contact with the ground, between rows of stopped or moving vehicles in the same lane, as specified. The bill would authorize the Department of the California Highway Patrol to develop educational guidelines relating to lane splitting in a manner that would ensure the safety of the motorcyclist, drivers, and passengers, as specified. The bill would require the department, in developing these guidelines, to consult with specified agencies and organizations with an interest in road safety and motorcyclist behavior.
08/19/16 Chaptered by Secretary of State – Chapter 141, Statutes of 2016.
- AB 2289 (Frazier) Department of Transportation: capital improvement projects.
Existing law requires the Department of Transportation to prepare a state highway operation and protection program for the expenditure of transportation funds for major capital improvements that are necessary to preserve and protect the state highway system and that include capital projects relative to maintenance, safety, and rehabilitation of state highways and bridges that do not add a new traffic lane to the system.This bill would add to the program capital projects relative to the operation of those state highways and bridges.
07/22/16 Chaptered by Secretary of State – Chapter 76, Statutes of 2016.
- AB 2469 (Frazier) Specialized license plates: breast cancer awareness.
This bill would authorize the State Department of Health Care Services to contact the department by September 5, 2016, and indicate its intent to undertake collection of additional applications and fees or deposits for an additional period of 12 months in order to obtain the minimum 7,500 applications for a special license plate the State Department of Health Care Services is seeking to sponsor pursuant to existing law.
08/29/16 Vetoed by Governor. Veto Message: “This bill would authorize the Department of Health Care Services to request an additional year to collect a minimum of 7,500 applications to qualify a breast cancer awareness specialized license plate without notifying existing applicants of the extension or their option to cancel their order and receive a refund. Since the department has already requested an extension and notified existing applicants of their option to request a refund, I believe this bill is unnecessary.”
08/30/16 Consideration of Governor’s veto pending.
- AB 2906 ( Committee on Transportation) Transportation: omnibus bill.
(1) Existing law authorizes the Treasurer and the California Transportation Commission to pledge amounts deposited in the State Highway Account from federal transportation funds for the purposes of issuing federal highway grant anticipation notes, commonly known as GARVEE bonds, to fund transportation projects selected by the commission. Existing law requires the commission to prepare an annual analysis of the bonding capacity of those federal transportation funds.This bill would instead require the commission to prepare this analysis when the Department of Transportation anticipates the issuance of new notes and makes a written request in that regard, but not more than once annually.(2) [definition of “motor carrier” changed]
(3) [changed definition of administrative costs for the Legacy License Plates]
(4) [repeals environmental license plate restrictions for 1984 Olympic plates]
(5) Existing law authorizes certain tow truck drivers to utilize the center median or right shoulder of a roadway in the event of an emergency that requires the rapid removal of impediments to traffic or rendering of assistance to a disabled vehicle obstructing a roadway, if specified conditions are met.
This bill would additionally give this authority to a tow truck driver who renders towing service or emergency road service to motorists while involved in freeway service patrol operations, pursuant to an agreement with a regional or local entity.
(6) Existing law requires a vehicle stopped or parked upon a roadway where there are adjacent curbs to be stopped or parked with the wheels of the vehicle parallel to, and within 18 inches of, the curb, as provided, except as specified.
This bill would additionally apply these provisions to vehicles stopped or parked upon a roadway where there are adjacent class IV bikeways, as defined.
(7) Existing law requires that every vehicle be equipped with stoplamps that emit red light unless the vehicle was manufactured before January 1, 1979, in which case it may emit a red or yellow light.
This bill would prohibit commercial vehicles from being equipped with amber stoplamps, amber taillamps, or other amber lamps that are optically combined with a stoplamp or taillamp.
(8) [trailer weight stuff]
(9) [use of flares near flammable material]
(10) Existing law prescribes maximum stopping distances and sets forth requirements for emergency brake systems and service brake systems for specified vehicles.
This bill would revise and reorganize those maximum stopping distances and standards for emergency brake systems and service brake systems.
(11) [prohibits a vehicle from displaying hazardous materials markings or placards unless permitted or required by specified federal regulations.]
(12) [more trailer regulations]
(13) [prohibits a driveaway-towaway combination, as defined, from exceeding 97 feet in length when transporting up to 3 saddle-mounted vehicles and one full-mounted vehicle.]
(14) [imposes a state-mandated local program.]
(15) [deletes obsolete provisions and make other technical, clarifying, and organizational changes.]
(16) [no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.]

2.5f Financial Allocations for SHOPP
Informational Reports on Allocations Under Delegated Authority. Details are provided for the items of interest; most are repair actions (such as slipout repairs, removal of dead trees prior to tree failure, repairs after nearby wildfires) or minor modifications (rumble strips, surface treatments, roadway rehabilitations, lighting updates) not at the level of interest for the highway pages. / Information only
- Emergency G-11 Allocations (2.5f.(1)): $67,112,000 for 36 projects
- Marin 04-Mrn-01 14.4/14.5. Route 1 near Stinson Beach, at 2.2 miles north of Panoramic Highway. During March 2016 storm events, a washout began along the roadway slope adjacent to Bolinas Lagoon, part of a National Marine Sanctuary. Later wave action in May caused the slope washout to expand and is now undermining the southbound lane. Slope armoring can not be environmentally cleared without a protracted schedule. Shifting the roadway away from the slope is acceptable to the resource agencies as a temporary repair. Permanent restoration repairs will require follow-up programming. This project will pave and allow shifting of the traffic lanes away from the damaged slope to minimize traffic impacts. $1,100,000
- San Diego 11-SD-94 50.6. Route 94 near Campo, at Campo Creek Bridge No. 57-0120. Following a recent bridge inspection, it was concluded this bridge needs replacement due to extensive deterioration of the existing deck and timber stringers and the potential high scour threat to the bridge foundations. Temporary shoring has been installed; however, shoring could fail as a result of monsoonal rainstorms and flash floods, thus placing the bridge at risk of collapse. This project will demolish the existing bridge and construct new to current standards. $3,450,000
- SHOPP Safety Lump Sum Sub-Allocations (2.5f.(3)): $52,254,000 in construction capital for 13 projects
- Tulare 09-Tul-190 4.0/5.0. Route 190 Near Tipton, from 0.4 mile west of Road 152 to 0.7 mile west of Road 160. Outcome/Output: Construct roundabout, sidewalk, curb and gutter and reconstruct 1.0 mile of Route 190 and 0.5 mile of Road 152 to increase safety and reduce the number and severity of collisions. $3,290,000
- Stanislaus 10-Sta-99 R18.0/R19.7 Route 99 in Modesto, from 0.1 mile north of West Modesto Overhead to 0.5 mile south of Beckwith Road. Outcome/Output: Reconstruct off-ramp and construct acceleration and deceleration lanes at southbound ramps to improve safety and reduce the number and severity of collisions. $7,923,000
