🛣 Updates to California Highways – June 2018

OK, OK. I said I wouldn’t let too much time elapse between updates. Life got away from me. Deal.

[Let me note that below the cut is information on all the things your gas tax is paying for: the STIP, the SHOPP, and all the SB1 programs. I urge you to go through those documents, and support the good work, jobs, and safer highways it is creating.]

I’m starting to get the urge to do some remodeling around here. I’ve already gotten the site moved to HTTPS: all the time, both on the blog side and on the highways side. Next up will be moving to a responsive design, together with some basic graphic changes of the headers and menus. I have no plans to change the content or my method of content generation. Rather, the use of icons as a menu with no text is very out of date; I’d rather go to a more accessible and understandable approach with some drop-down menus, and perhaps a nice graphic header. I did explore using a different CMS for the highway side and integrating my generation approach, but I’ve come to realize that is quite likely overkill. The problems I’ve got are (a) finding a good WSYWYG HTML editor that I like (both of the ones I use, HoTMetaL Pro and Amaya are abandonware). Second is learning how responsive design works and having the time to do it (this site was started in the earliest days of the web). So comment if you have suggestions (or wish to volunteer to help with the top level design), and be prepared for a new look at some point in the future. You can see my thoughts on what I would like from the redesign here; it also explains how the site is generated.

Moving on to the updates: 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 Michael Ballard(2), bing101/AARoads(3), DTComposer(4), Tom Fearer​/​Max Rockatansky/AARoads(5), Andy Fields(6), Ray Mullins(7), Alex Nitzman(8), Sparker/AARoads(9), Miosh_Tino/AARoads(10), Don Williams(11), Joel Windmiller(12): Route 1(1,8), Route 4(1), I-5(1,2,8,3,9), US 6(5), I-8(8), Route 9(5), I-10(1), Route 11(8), Route 12(1), Route 14(1), I-15(1), Route 16(8), Route 17(1,5), Route 18(1), LRN 21(5), Route 24(5,8), Route 25(8), Route 28(5), Route 32(1,5), Route 33(5,7,11), Route 34(1), Route 35(1,5), Route 36(1,5), Route 37(8), I-40(1), US 40(5), Route 41(1,5), Route 46(1,5), Route 49(5), US 50(1,5,3), Route 51(1), Route 52(8), Route 57(1) Route 58(1), Route 59(5), Route 60(1), Route 62(1,5), Route 65(3,9), Route 66(1,5), Route 67(1), Route 68(1), Route 70(1,5,9), Route 71(1), Route 75(1), Route 76(1), Route 77(8), I-80(1,3,9), US 80(5), Route 82(8), Route 84(1,9), Route 85(1,5,10), Route 88(12), Route 89(1), Route 91(1), Route 93(8), US 95(1,5), US 97(8), Route 99(1,9), US 101(1,3,6), Route 109(5), I-110(1,8), Route 113(1), Route 114(5,9), Route 119(5), Route 120(5), Route 121(1), Route 123(8), Route 124(5), Route 127(1,5), LRN 127(1,5), Route 130(5,9,8), Route 132(9), Route 135(5,9), Route 136(1,5,9), Route 138(1), Route 138/HDC(1), Route 140(5), Route 146(5), Route 147(1), Route 149(9), Route 152(1), Route 153(5), Route 155(5), Route 156(1), Route 158(5), Route 163(1), Route 165(5,9), Route 166(1,5,8), Route 167(5), Route 172(5), Route 176(5,9), Route 178(5), Route 180(5), Route 184(5), Route 187(1), Route 191(1), Route 192(1), Route 195(5,9), Route 197(8), US 199(8), Route 203(5), I-205(8), Route 207(5), Route 209(5), I-210(1), Route 218(1), Route 219(5), Route 222(9), Route 223(5), Route 227(5), Route 237(5), Route 241(1), Route 246(1), Route 265(8), Route 268(1), Route 270(5), Route 273(8), I-280(1), Route 281(8), Route 283(8), Route 284(8), Route 299(8), Route 330(8), Route 371(1,8), US 395(8), US 399(5), I-405(1), US 466(5), I-580(1), I-605(1,4), I-680(1), I-710(1), I-780(3), I-805(1,8), Route 905(8), CR A15(5), County Route A22(5), County Route A23(5), County Route G13(5), CR G14(5), County Route J18(5), County Route J59(5).

Added some extensive history to Route 710 for the period before 2006, as a result of some of my materials being used in an exhibition on the history and controversy over the Route 710 Gap Completion. Thanks also to Julia Tcharfas and Tim Ivison, the exhibition organizers, for the scans of the proposed Route 710 gap routings from the 1980s, which was in their extensive set of clippings on the subject. This also led me to write a blog post on the subject.

Added a question to the FAQ about roadside memorials.

Processed some link corrections from David CrispRosanna Kull, and Will Tottle.

I’ve begun the slow process of adding postmile references to ensure I present highway information in order. Notable routes where this has been done includes Route 1, I-5, Route 99, and US 101. The process of doing so uncovered a few errors in the site, which have been corrected. For those who love to debate, this uncovered that there is a Route 101U, just as there was a Route 14U. There’s also a Route 210U.

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. I noted the passage/veto of the following bills and resolutions (for some of these, I’ve highlighted key phrases in red):

  • SCR 57 (Cannella) Memorial highways.
    (1) Designates the portion of Route 183 from Davis Road (approx 183 MON R1.908) to Espinosa Road (approx 183 MON R7.642) in the City of Salinas in the County of Monterey as the “United States Army Chief Warrant Officer 2 Edward Balli Memorial Highway“;(2) Designates the portion of US 101 from Esperanza Road (approx 101 MON 78.682) to Gould Road (approx 101 MON 82.564) in the County of Monterey as the “United States Army Specialist Ricardo Cerros, Jr. Memorial Highway“;

    (3) Designates the portion of Route 183 from US 101 (183 MON 0.0) to Davis Road (approx 183 MON R1.908) in the City of Salinas in the County of Monterey as the “United States Army Specialist Vilmar Galarza Hernandez Memorial Highway“;

    (4) Designates the portion of US 101 from Hudson Road near the City of Soledad (approx. 101 MON 55.935) to Espinosa Road near the City of Greenfield (approx. 101 MON 52.193) in the County of Monterey as the “United States Army Sgt. Javier Sanchez Memorial Highway“.

    (5) Designates the portion of Route 218 from the junction of Route 68 in the City of Del Rey Oaks (approx. 218 MON 1.944) to the junction of Route 1 in the City of Seaside (approx 218 MON 0.0) in the County of Monterey (i.e., all of Route 218) as the “United States Army Private First Class Coronado D. Javier Memorial Highway.”

I checked the CTC Liaison page for the results of the CTC meetings from January through June 2018 (January 2018March 2018May 2018June 2018 (Agenda)). Given all the SB1 additions, I’m not updating simple financial amendments or adjustments to project funding allocations. Agenda Item 4.4 from the March 2018 agenda is a good summary of the programs impacted by SB1 funds.

But, before we get into the Agenda Items, there’s more. The following is from March 2018 Agenda Item 4.29 (Tab 25), “Adoption of the 2018 State Transportation Improvement Program”, Resolution G-18-16 (note that agenda item also includes the corrections from that meeting):

This book item includes the text that was part of the Staff Recommendations. It does not include the 86 pages of spreadsheet tables and their description that comprise the remainder of the Staff Recommendations.

Here are the 86 pages of the STIP, as presented on February 28, 2018. This page has the items with any errata, and will presumably be updated. Then, of course, there is the SHOPP, which is more of a maintenance program. The Draft SHOPP proposal was 428 pages of PDF. The final adopted SHOPP, again at the March Meeting, was 413 pages (plus some early financial allocations). Then, there’s the 186 page Transportation Asset Management Plan. There was also the SB1 Project Map and Project List of over 5,000 projects. All of these required review as part of these SB1 updates. As with my normal CTC reviews, with respect to the SHOPP, my goal is not to record all changes — especially ephemeral ones or ones that do not substantially change the routing. Translation: What I’m really interested in is the significant or new: additions of lanes, significant reroutings, new bridges with significant differences, and such. There are a number of bridge projects to establish standard vertical clearances. I’m generally not including those, especially if they don’t include construction and construction support, unless they really catch my eye.

I’m not going to repeat all the details of the changes here; I’m only going to list the highways that had updates as a result of the review: Route 1, Route 2, Route 3, Route 4, I-5, I-8, Route 9, I-10, Route 12, Route 14, I-15, Route 16, Route 18, Route 20, Route 25, Route 29, Route 32, Route 36, Route 39, I-40, Route 41, Route 44, Route 46, Route 49, US 50, Route 51, Route 55, Route 57, Route 58, Route 60, Route 65, Route 68, Route 70, Route 71, Route 75, I-80, Route 84, Route 88, Route 92, Route 94, Route 96, US 99E (Route 99), Route 99, US 101, Route 108, Route 110, Route 120, Route 121, Route 128, Route 132, Route 133, Route 138, Route 146, Route 152, Route 154, Route 156, Route 164, Route 174, Route 180, Route 184, I-205, I-210, Route 217, Route 237, Route 245, Route 255, I-280, Route 299, US 395, I-405, I-680, I-710, I-805, County Route G12. Note that in these descriptions: PS&E ≡Plans, Specifications, and Estimates.

Modulo the detailed STIP, SHOPP, and TAMP updates, and looking at the meetings covered in this update, 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) :
