🛣️ Changes to the California Highways Website – October/November 2018

What did you do over the Thanksgiving weekend? Me? I didn’t eat turkey; instead, I finished updating the California Highways web pages with all the changes accumulated since the end of June.

You can thank me later. For now, read on, McDuff.

After two updates that added maps to every route page, it’s time to do a regular update. As I’ve written before, I’m do some remodeling around here. Over the past year, the site has been moved to HTTPS: all the time, and (as noted) maps will be added. I’ve gotten a book on Responsive Design, and after I read it, I’ll be moving the site 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. As always, I’m on the lookout for a good WSYWYG with “Tags Mode” HTML editor that I like (both of the ones I use, HoTMetaL Pro and Amaya are abandonware). 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 Tom Fearer​ (​Max Rockatansky)(2), Andy Field(3), Mark F/AARoads(4), Gonelookin/AARoads(5), Alex Nitzman(6), Joe Rouse(7), Chris Sampang(8), Sparker/AARoads(9), Jim Umbach(10), Joel Windmiller(11): Route 1(1,2), Route 2(1), Route 4(1,2), I-5(1,2), US 6(2), Route 8(1,2), Route 9(1,8), Route 11(1), Route 12(1,2), Route 14(1), I-15(1,9,6,10), Route 16(11,8,9), Route 20(2), LRN 23(2), Route 24(11,8,9), Route 25(1), Route 26(2), Route 28(2), Route 29(1), Route 30(8), Route 31(9), Route 32(1), Route 33(2,9), LRN 34(2), Route 36(1), Route 37(1), Route 41(1), Route 42(1), Route 44(8), Route 49(1,2), US 50(1,2,5), Route 51(2,9,7), Route 52(1), Route 57(1), Route 58(1,2,8), Route 60(1), Route 61(1), Route 65(1,2), Route 74 (including the Mid-County Parkway)(1), Route 76(1), Route 79(1), I-80(1,2,9,7), Route 82(1,8), Route 84(1), Route 85(1), Route 88(2), Route 89(1,2), Route 92(8), US 97(2), Route 99(1,2,11,9), US 101(1,9), Route 108(1,2), Route 110(1),Route 111(1), Route 118(1,9), Route 122(9), Route 128(1), LRN 129(1,2), Route 132(1,2,9), LRN 136(1,2), Route 138(1), Route 141(6), Route 155(1,2), Route 156(1), Route 161(2), Route 163(1), Route 166(1), Route 174(2), Route 188(2), Route 190(1,2), Route 196(9), Route 198(1), Route 201(1), Route 202(2), I-210(1), I-215(1), Route 211(1,2), I-215(1), Route 216(1), Route 221(1), Route 229(2), Route 237(1), Route 238(1,9), Route 241(1,4), Route 249(9), Route 263(1), Route 267(2), Route 275(1), Route 276(1,2), Route 283(1), Route 299(1,2), US 395(1), Route 371(1), I-380(1), I-405(1), US 466(2), I-580(1), I-680(1), I-710(1), I-780(6), County Sign Route E2 – Capitol Southeast Connector(3,8), County Sign Route E15(2), County Sign Route E18(2), County Sign Route G1(2), County Sign Route J16(2), County Sign Route J22(2), County Sign Route J28(2), County Sign Route J29(2), County Sign Route J37(2), County Sign Route J41(2), County Sign Route N2(1), County Sign Route N3(1).

Noted the useful responses to an AAroad query for when I move to the “one highway per page” as part of Phase 3 of the site refresh.

Updated the Chronology based on the Caltrans chronology.

Noted a change in the definition of a Landscaped Freeway. In January 2018, the California Assembly voted unanimously to endorse a plan that could raise $500 million annually for each billboard classified as a digital billboard. The revenue could be applied for road work in the state. Sponsored by Assemblywoman Blanca Rubio, D-Baldwin Park, the bill would convert the state’s signage definition from static signs to include digital billboards. AB3168 would also clarify and limit what can be considered as a landscaped highway. The change would permit existing billboards to be relocated along highways. The digital billboards would also be taller than existing billboards. State and federal law are set up to protect landscaped areas along highways. Changes to allow affected digital billboards in the Golden State would also require federal approval. Failure to enforce federal law could result in the loss of 10 percent of federal highway funds. California receives $3.5 billion annually from the feds, which equates to the possibility of losing out on $350 million for failure to comply with the federal billboard rule. The bill was approved by the governor 9/29/2018, Chapter 926, Statutes of 2018.

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):

  • AB 91 (Cervantes) High-occupancy vehicle lanes.
    Existing law authorizes the Department of Transportation to designate certain lanes for the exclusive or preferential use of high-occupancy vehicles. When those exclusive or preferential use lanes are established and double parallel solid lines are in place to the right thereof, existing law prohibits any person driving a vehicle from crossing over those double lines to enter into or exit from the lanes, and entrance or exit from those lanes is authorized only in areas designated for these purposes or where a single broken line is in place to the right of the lanes, except as specified.This bill would require the department to report to the transportation policy committees of the Legislature, on or before January 1, 2020, on the feasibility and appropriateness of limiting the use of high-occupancy vehicle lanes to high-occupancy vehicles and eligible vehicles, as defined, only during the hours of heavy commuter traffic on both Route 91 between I-15 and I-215 in the County of Riverside, and Route 60 in the County of Riverside.
    09/18/18 Chaptered by Secretary of State – Chapter 468, Statutes of 2018.
  • AB 2272 (Mayes) State highways: relinquishment.
    This bill would authorize the commission to relinquish to the City of Palm Springs any portion, or the entirety, of Route 111 within its city limits, upon terms and conditions the commission finds to be in the best interests of the state, if the department and the city enter into an agreement providing for that relinquishment.
    09/17/18 Chaptered by Secretary of State – Chapter 433, Statutes of 2018.
  • AB 2473 (Bonta) State Highway Route 185: relinquishment: City of San Leandro.
    Existing law authorizes the commission to relinquish all or a portion of Route 185 in the City of Hayward to that city, as specified, and to relinquish all or a portion of Route 185 in the County of Alameda to that county, as specified.This bill would additionally authorize the commission to relinquish all or a portion of Route 185 in the City of San Leandro to that city, as specified.
    09/10/18 Chaptered by Secretary of State – Chapter 321, Statutes of 2018.
  • AB 2535 (Obernolte) High-occupancy toll lanes: notice of toll evasion violation.
    Existing law requires an issuing agency or a processing agency to forward a notice of toll evasion violation to the registered owner of a vehicle that is found, by automated devices, visual observation, or otherwise, to have evaded tolls on a toll road or toll bridge within 21 days of the violation, except as specified. Existing law requires the notice of toll evasion violation to set forth the violation, including reference to the code section violated, the approximate time thereof, and the location where the violation occurred. Existing law also requires the notice of toll evasion violation to include the vehicle license plate number, a clear and concise explanation of the procedures for contesting the violation and appealing an adverse decision, and, if practicable, the registration expiration date and the make of the vehicle.This bill would also require the notice of toll evasion violation to include a copy of photographic evidence on which the toll evasion determination was based if the vehicle was found, by automated devices, to have evaded the toll through failure to meet occupancy requirements in a high-occupancy toll lane. Because this bill would require an issuing agency or a processing agency to include additional materials in the notice, it would impose a state-mandated local program.The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.

    This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.
    09/17/18 Chaptered by Secretary of State – Chapter 435, Statutes of 2018.

  • AB 2548 (Friedman) Commute benefit policies: Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority.
    Existing law declares that the fostering, continuance, and development of public transportation systems are a matter of statewide concern. Existing law creates the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, with various powers and duties with respect to transportation planning, programming, construction, and operations.This bill would authorize the authority to adopt, and revise as necessary, a commute benefit ordinance that requires covered employers operating within the authority’s area with a specified number of employees to offer certain employees commute benefits, as specified, except that the bill would prohibit the ordinance from affecting employers covered by certain South Coast Air Quality Management District rules or regulations. The bill would require the ordinance to specify certain matters, including any consequences for noncompliance. The bill would, if the authority adopts a commute benefit ordinance, require the authority, before January 1, 2022, to submit a report to the transportation policy committees of each house of the Legislature and the Senate Committee on Environmental Quality that includes specified elements.
    08/20/18 Chaptered by Secretary of State – Chapter 173, Statutes of 2018.
  • AB 2615 (Carrillo) State highway system: parks and recreation: accessibility for bicycles and pedestrians.
    Existing law provides that the Department of Transportation has full possession and control of all state highways and all property and rights in property acquired for state highway purposes, including any portion of a state highway within a state park. Existing law also authorizes the department and any county having a park commission to enter into and carry out cooperative agreements for the grading, development, planting and maintenance of roadside areas, including a roadside park, along any state highway and within the right of way of that state highway. Existing law also authorizes the department to enter into any agreement with the United States or any federal department or agency when the construction of any federal facility or any feature of that facility requires construction, relocation, or other change in any state highway or bridge.This bill would, to the extent possible, and where feasible and cost effective, require the department to partner with appropriate public agencies, including, but not limited to, the Department of Parks and Recreation, any federal department or agency, and any regional or local public entity, to develop strategies and plans to improve access for bicycles and pedestrians to federal, state, regional, and local parks adjacent to or connected to the state highway system.
    09/18/18 Chaptered by Secretary of State – Chapter 496, Statutes of 2018.
  • AB 2734 (Frazier) California Transportation Commission.
    Existing law establishes in state government the Transportation Agency, which includes various departments and state entities, including the California Transportation Commission. Existing law vests the California Transportation Commission with specified powers, duties, and functions relative to transportation matters. Existing law requires the commission to retain independent authority to perform the duties and functions prescribed to it under any provision of law.This bill would exclude the California Transportation Commission from the Transportation Agency, establish it as an entity in state government, and require it to act in an independent oversight role. The bill would also make conforming changes.
    09/14/18 Vetoed by Governor. Veto Message: I signed legislation in 2012 that affirmed the Commission’s independent authority to perform its duties and no evidence has been presented which would suggest a need to now change the existing framework.
  • AB 2865 (Chiu) High-occupancy toll lanes: Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority.
    Existing law authorizes the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) to conduct, administer, and operate a value pricing high-occupancy toll (HOT) lane program on 2 corridors included in the high-occupancy vehicle lane system in the County of Santa Clara and on Route 101 in the County of San Mateo in coordination with the City/County Association of Governments of San Mateo County and the San Mateo County Transportation Authority, as prescribed.This bill would authorize the Santa Clara Transportation Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) to apply to the commission pursuant to the above-described provisions to conduct, administer, and operate HOT lanes or other toll facilities on Route 101 and a specified portion of Route 280 in the City and County of San Francisco if the San Francisco County Transportation Authority (SFCTA) approves the facilities before VTA submits an application to the commission for approval. The bill would require VTA to conduct, administer, and operate the facility in coordination with SFCTA. The bill would require SFCTA, in collaboration with the department and VTA, to develop the expenditure plan and would require the governing board of SFCTA to review and approve the expenditure plan and any updates.Existing law authorizes VTA to conduct, administer, and operate a value pricing high-occupancy toll (HOT) lane program on 2 corridors included in the high-occupancy vehicle lane system in the County of Santa Clara and on Route 101 in the County of San Mateo in coordination with the City/County Association of Governments of San Mateo County and the San Mateo County Transportation Authority, as prescribed. For the value pricing program authorized on Route 101 in the County of San Mateo, existing law requires all remaining revenue generated by the program after specified expenditures are made to be used in the corridor from which the revenues were generated exclusively for certain purposes.

    This bill would provide that those remaining revenues may also be used for projects that benefit the corridor, as specified. The bill would make other nonsubstantive and minor substantive changes.
    09/18/18 Chaptered by Secretary of State – Chapter 501, Statutes of 2018.

  • AB 3075 (Berman) Office of Elections Cybersecurity.
    Existing law establishes the Secretary of State as the chief elections officer of the state.This bill would create within the Secretary of State the Office of Elections Cybersecurity to coordinate efforts between the Secretary of State and local elections officials to reduce the likelihood and severity of cyber incidents that could interfere with the security or integrity of elections in the state, and to monitor and counteract false or misleading information regarding the electoral process that is published online or on other platforms and that may suppress voter participation or cause confusion and disruption of the orderly and secure administration of elections.

  • SB 957 (Lara) Vehicles: high-occupancy vehicle lanes.
    Existing state law authorizes the Department of Transportation to designate certain lanes for the exclusive use of high-occupancy vehicles (HOVs). Existing law also authorizes, until January 1, 2019, ultra-low emission vehicles (ULEVs), and until September 30, 2025, or until the date federal authorization expires, or until the Secretary of State receives a specified notice, whichever occurs first, super ultra-low emission vehicles (SULEVs), enhanced advanced technology partial zero-emission vehicles (enhanced AT PZEVs), or transitional zero-emission vehicles (TZEVs), as specified, that display a valid identifier issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles to use these HOV lanes. Existing law makes it a crime to drive one of those vehicles in an HOV lane without properly displaying the issued identifier and having the vehicle registration with the vehicle, or to operate or own a vehicle displaying an identifier if the identifier was not issued for that vehicle. Existing law makes identifiers for ULEVs valid until January 1, 2019, and makes identifiers for SULEVs, enhanced AT PEZEVs, and TZEVs valid until January 1, 2019, January 1, 2022, or January 1 of the 4th year after the year in which they were issued, as specified. Existing law, except as specified, prohibits a vehicle from being issued an identifier more than once.This bill would authorize an identifier to be issued commencing January 1, 2020, until January 1, 2024, to SULEVs, enhanced AT PEZEVs, and TZEVs for a vehicle that had previously been issued an identifier and would make that identifier valid until January 1, 2024, if the applicant for the identifier has a household income at or below 80% of the state median income. The bill would require the Department of Motor Vehicles to report to the Legislature the number of identifiers issued pursuant to those provisions, and would require the report to be issued after January 1, 2023, but before June 1, 2023. The bill would prohibit a person who obtained an identifier for a vehicle prior to January 1, 2017, from obtaining another identifier pursuant to those provisions, notwithstanding the person’s qualifying income. The bill would also make a conforming change and technical, nonsubstantive changes.
    09/13/18 Chaptered by Secretary of State. Chapter 367, Statutes of 2018.
  • SB 989 (Wieckowski) State highways: relinquishment.
    Existing law provides that the Department of Transportation has full possession and control of all state highways. Existing law describes the authorized routes in the state highway system and establishes a process for adoption of a highway on an authorized route by the California Transportation Commission. Existing law authorizes the commission to relinquish to local agencies state highway segments that have been deleted from the state highway system by legislative enactment or have been superseded by relocation, and in certain other cases.This bill would authorize the commission to relinquish to the City of Fremont a specified portion of Route 84 within its city limits, upon terms and conditions the commission finds to be in the best interests of the state, if the department and the city enter into an agreement providing for that relinquishment.
    09/17/18 Chaptered by Secretary of State. Chapter 461, Statutes of 2018.
  • SB 1259 (Nielsen) Signage: tourist oriented directional signs.

Existing law specifies various requirements for placement of these signs, including a requirement that the maximum distance from a highway intersection to an attraction or facility may not exceed 10 miles, except as provided.This bill would exempt signs to facilities or attractions located in the County of Tehama that are directly related to an American Viticultural Area located in that county from this requirement.

  • SB 1328 (Beall) Mileage-based road usage fee.
    Existing law requires the Chair of the California Transportation Commission to create a Road Usage Charge (RUC) Technical Advisory Committee in consultation with the Secretary of the Transportation Agency. Under existing law, the purpose of the technical advisory committee is to guide the development and evaluation of a pilot program to assess the potential for mileage-based revenue collection as an alternative to the gas tax system. Existing law requires the technical advisory committee to study RUC alternatives to the gas tax, gather public comment on issues and concerns related to the pilot program, and to make recommendations to the Secretary of the Transportation Agency on the design of a pilot program, as specified. Existing law repeals these provisions on January 1, 2019This bill would extend the operation of these provisions until January 1, 2023. The bill would, in addition, require the technical advisory committee to continue to assess the potential for mechanisms, including, but not limited to, a mileage-based revenue collection system, to use as alternative methods to the existing gas tax system for generating the revenue necessary to maintain and operate the state’s transportation system. The bill would, instead, require the committee to gather public comment related to the assessment of those mechanisms.
