🛣 Updates to the California Highways Web Pages – March 2019

It is time for the first update of the year. This is a normal update to the naked eye; however, it is notably the first update after doing a tech-refresh at home. In other words, this update is being done with my new HP Envy 17 laptop, after years of updates done with my trusty Toshiba A665. The intended remodeling is still planned, but I need time to (a) read my responsive design book, and (b) pick a design that I like. As I’ve noted before, I have no plans to change the content or my method of content generation. I have settled on my replacement editor for HoTMetaL ProBlueGriffon. as it seems to have a good tag manipulation mode. I also plan to use Pinegrow to check the responsive design aspects. and plan to continue to use Amaya as the main editor (even though Amaya seems to be 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 Anneliese Ågren(2), Tom Fearer(3), ClassicHasClass on AAroads(4), DTComposer on AAroads(5), Mark F on AARoads(6), Kniwt on AAroads(7), Plutonic Panda on AAroads(8), richardwm15 on AAroads(9), Sparker on AAroads(10), Chris Sampang on AAroads(11), Oscar Voss on AAroads(12), Alex on AAroads(13): Route 1(1,2,3,9), Route 2(1), Route 4(1,3), I-5(1,6), I-10(1), Route 11(1), Route 12(3), Route 13(3), Route 14(1), I-15(1), Route 16(3), Route 17(1,3), Route 18(1), Route 20(1,13), Route 21(1,3), Route 22(1,6), Route 24(3), Route 25(1), Route 29(1), LRN 30(3), Route 33(1,3), Route 36(10), Route 37(1), I-40(1), US 40(3), Route 41(3), Route 45(3), Route 46(1), US 48(1,3), Route 49(1),US 50(1,3), Route 57(1), Route 59(1), Route 60(1,4), Route 61(3,10), LRN 69(3), Route 70(3), Route 71(1), Route 74(1), LRN 74(10), Route 75(1), Route 77(3,11), I-80(1,3), Route 82(3), Route 84(1,3,10), Route 87(5,10), Route 91(1,6,8), Route 92(10), Route 96(1), Route 99(1,3), US 101(1,3,8), I-105(1), LRN 105(3), Route 108(1), Route 110(1), Route 111(1), Route 112(3), Route 113(3), Route 117(10), Route 120(1,3,7), Route 123(3), Route 126(1), Route 128(1), Route 134(1), Route 141(3,10), Route 146(12), Route 149(3), Route 154(1), Route 162(3), Route 166(3), Route 179(3,10), Route 180(1),Route 185(3,11), Route 187(1), Route 191(3), Route 192(1), US 199(1), I-210(1), Route 220(3), Route 227(1), Route 229(3), Route 238(1), Route 241(1,6,8), Route 242(3), Route 243(1), Route 260(3), Route 262(3), Route 275(3), I-280(1,3,10), Route 282(1), Route 299(1), I-380(1,3), I-405(1,10),US 466(3), Route 480(1,3), I-505(3,10), I-580(1,3), I-680(3), I-710(1), I-780(3), I-880(1), I-980(3), County Sign Route G9(3), County Sign Route J2(3), County Sign Route J4(3), County Sign Route J7(3), County Sign Route J9(3), County Sign Route S21(7).

Thanks to Keilah Keiser, removed some broken links from the links page. Went through and updated all the regional links. If you identify any links that are bad, please let me know — they haven’t been checked in a long time. Kudos to those folks that kept their pages up or had redirects. Boos to those who took down their pages, abandoned their sites, or didn’t tell me when things moved. Surprisingly, all those Angelfire sites are still up. Tripod and Geocities, not all that much. I also went through and changed all the Sure Why Not? blog links to Gribblenation.org blog links. I also went through the Road Links on AAroads, which resulted in more changes and confirmations for all the links on the highway resources page, as well as updates to regional links.

Added some additional map sources to the maps page.

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. Although numerous bills have been introduced, none have gone to the Governor for signature yet. As many people are unfamilair 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.

I checked the CTC Liaison page for the results of the CTC meetings from December 2018 through March 2019 (2018-12-05/062019-01-30/312019-03-13/14). 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) :
