🛣 Changes to the California Highways Website – August (well, late July) 2020

Now that we are past the site rework, we can return to the normal round of updates: going through the headlines, email, and AARoads; what the legislature did; and the CTC minutes. A few final rework notes: I’ve discovered that the site works much better on mobile devices if you use it in LANDSCAPE mode; I haven’t yet found a way to make it scale right automatically in portrait mode. Suggestions are welcome on that. Also, if for some reason you’re still seeing the old site, clear your cache! Lastly, if you referred to hwystart.html, change that reference to ROUTE001.html. The page hwystart.html (which was just a copy of 001-008.html) was a kludge to reflect the fact that I couldn’t predict aforetime what the first highway grouping would be. Now I can.

One additional introductory note: As I was working on this update, a few kerfuffles occurred on the Facebook groups Freeways of Los Angeles and Historic US Highway 99, as a result of people sharing pictures from Michael Ballard’s excellent site without giving credit to Michael’s site (something those of us with long-time sites are sensitive to, as many in the “Internet generation” believe that if something is posted on the net, it is there for the taking)*. Related to this is the disappearance of the FB group California’s Historic Highways** and the self-ghosting of Joel Windmiller. I don’t want to open up the credit debate — credit should always be given, and hopefully I’m getting better on that (and if I err, let me know and I’ll correct); further, with appropriate credit, I believe much of our use is fair use and educational, especially when only a focused portion of an image is used or a segment or summary of text from a site is used with credit and a pointerHere’s the real question in all of this ⇒ Facebook would allow me to create a group to go along with the page I already have for California Highways. Should I? I would ensure there is moderation that insists on credit and no political discussions; I would attempt to recruit some co-administrators that also have pages on the net, are roadgeeks of long-standing, and who understand the issue. However, having experienced attempting to moderate a FB group in another area (I attempted to move my Mail.Liberal-Judaism Mailing List to a FB group), I know their moderation system is not to my liking (for example, you can’t moderate those leaving comments, and you can’t easily send mail back with the message requesting specific changes). Moderation also takes a fair amount of time (which will be an issue when the world returns to normal), and opens one up to liability issues largely due to the cluelessness or carelessness of others. Please let me know your thoughts via email to webmaster@cahighways.org; and as always when you post on FB or elsewhere, credit your sources.

That’s why I didn’t use “free for the taking”, as I’m not looking for payment. This is, in a sense, like the Gnu Copyleft, only the basic term is: give credit to the original source. 
❚ **: Or at least I can’t see it, which means I was kicked out with no message or reason, which is equally problematic]

Related to the above, and seeing that Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are in mid-September this year, possibly before the next big round of updates: If I have used material from your website or a post, and have neither credited you at the point of use or recognized your contribution on my sources page, I sincerely apologize and want to make things right. Please let me know the occurrence, and I’ll make sure that credit is given, or remove or rework the offending material. If you have lifted material from my website, don’t worry. I won’t be coming after you. All I ask is that you credit (by name, and by URL link) to the original source so that readers can investigate my site for the most up-to-date information.

With that said, now 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 (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 : StevAshe(2), Michael Ballard(3)Concrete_Bob(4), Tom Fearer/Max_Rockatansky(5), Andy Field/andy3175(6)Fungus(7)Occidental Tourist(8), Scott Parker/SParker(9)PDERocco(10), Chris Sampang/thestranger(11), Don Williams/Don1991(12): Route 1(5), LRN 2(1), I-5(1), US 6(3), I-8(1,3), I-15(1), Route 18(1), Route 20(1), Route 25(1), Route 26(3), Route 29(1,5), Route 36(1), Route 37(1), Route 39(1), I-40(1), Route 41(5), Route 47(1), Route 53(5, 9), Route 55(1), Route 57(1), Route 58(10), Route 75(1), LRN 79(1), I-80(1,3), Route 99(1), US 101(1,3,9,5), Route 103(1), I-105(1), Route 108(9), I-110(1), Route 116(1), Route 120(1), Route 121(1), Route 126(1), Route 142(1), Route 148(6, 11, 9, 4), Route 162(1), Route 164(9,8),  Route 170(3), Route 174(1), LRN 174(1), LRN 177(1), LRN 180(1),  LRN 182(1), LRN 184(1), Route 197(5), Route 200(5), Route 210(1), Route 211(5,9), Route 213(9), Route 221(1), Route 222(5), Route 250(1), Route 255(5), Route 282(1), Route 283(5), Route 284(5), Route 285(5), US 395(9), I-405(1), I-605(1), I-710(1,7),  I-880(1).

I also added a link to the Golden State Highways and California Travel Directory(5), as a placeholder for the Gribblenation Blog, to the regional page of the links directory. Consider this a plea: Please take a look at the regional directory. If you are aware of regional sites that have gone away or have moved, please let me know.  If you are aware of regional sites (other than Wikipedia pages) that I am missing, please let me know. We have moved into the era of corporate sites, and those of us who do the independent highway pages need to band together. I’d suggest a webring, but no one remembers those these days.

Added a link to Freeways for the Region, effectively the master plan for the freeways from 1943, to the first page of the Southern California Map discussion pages(12). Thanks to Don Williams/Don1991 for finding the link. Updated the exit numbering statistics on the Exit Numbering page(2). Corrected some name references to reflect the preferences of the authors with respect to the name used.

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

  • SCR 67 (Archuleta) Los Angeles County Deputy Sheriff Jack Williams Memorial Highway.
    Designates the portion of I-605 between Alondra Boulevard (~ LA R5.832) and Rosecrans Avenue (~ LA R6.84) in the County of Los Angeles as the Los Angeles County Deputy Sheriff Jack Williams Memorial Highway.
    06/11/20    Chaptered by Secretary of State. Res. Chapter 16, Statutes of 2020.
  • SCR 68 (Archuleta) United States Army Sergeant Thomas R. MacPherson Memorial Interchange.
    Designates the interchange of I-605 and Katella Avenue (~ ORA R1.432) in the County of Orange as the United States Army Sergeant Thomas R. MacPherson Memorial Interchange.
    06/11/20    Chaptered by Secretary of State. Res. Chapter 17, Statutes of 2020.

I checked the CTC Liaison page (post AB 434 link) for the results of the California Transportation Commission meetings from May through July 2020. However, that page is also caught up in the AB 434 rework, meaning that none of the agendas and all of the background was unavailable. However, the California Transportation Commission does a better job of having its act together, and the agendas and minutes and backgrounds are available there. As always, 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):

2.1a. STIP/SHOPP Program/Project Amendments

♠ (May) (1) SHOPP Amendments for Approval: Request to: [Approved]

  • Add 29 new Capital projects into the 2018 SHOPP.  (2.1a.(1a))
  • Revise 34 projects currently programmed in the 2018  (2.1a.(1d) & 2.1a.(1f))

Of these, the following projects/allocation were at the level of interest for the highway pages (general, these are significant new structures or changes, as opposed to repair or rehabilitation in place or non-visible changes):

  • 2.1a.(1a) #25.02-Plu-36 R13.6/R14.2 PPNO 3759  Proj ID 0219000145 EA 0J640 Route 36 near Chester, from 0.3 mile west to 0.3 mile east of  County Sign Route A13. Construct roundabout.

  • Revise 67 projects currently programmed in the 2018 SHOPP. (2.1a.(2d) & 2.1a.(2f))

Of these, for the projects that were of interest, the amendments were to the 2018 SHOPP, and thus the revised numbers propagated into the 2020 SHOPP updates already made.

♠ (Jun) (1) SHOPP Amendments for Approval: Request to:

  • Add 3 new projects into the 2018 SHOPP. (2.1a.(1a))
  • Revise 7 projects currently programmed in the 2018 SHOPP. (2.1a.(1d) & 2.1a.(1g))

Of these, the following projects/allocation were at the level of interest for the highway pages (general, these are significant new structures or changes, as opposed to repair or rehabilitation in place or non-visible changes):

  • (1d) #2. 04-Ala-84 13.0/13.6. PPNO 0084B ProjID 0400000429 EA 16030. Route 84 in Fremont, at Alameda Creek Bridge No. 33-36. Replace bridge. Adjust funding to Split environmental mitigation and plant establishment work from this project into EA 16031/PPNO 04-1084B.

♠ (Jun) (2) STIP Amendment for Approval: The Department proposes to program $12,200,000 of Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act) Surface Transportation Block Grant Program (STBGP) – Coordinated Border Infrastructure Program (CBI) funds for three new projects. One project in Imperial County (PPNO 1411) and two projects in San Diego County. (PPNO 1416 and PPNO 1417). Of these, the following was of interest for the highway pages:

  • Revise 39 projects currently programmed in the 2020 SHOPP. (2.1a.(5d) & 2.1a.(5f))

Of these, the following projects/allocation were at the level of interest for the highway pages (general, these are significant new structures or changes, as opposed to repair or rehabilitation in place or non-visible changes):

  • (5a) #3 05-Mon-1 8.7/9.1. PPNO 2850 ProjID 0518000106 EA 1K020. On Route 1 near Gorda, from north of White Creek Bridge to 2.0 miles south of Los Burros Road. Realign highway, replace temporary safety features with permanent safety devices, and install erosion control measures. PA&ED: 752K; PS&E $1,046K; R/W Sup $26K; Con Sup $838K; R/W Cap $4K; Const Cap $2,176K; Total $4,842K. BC: 6/22/2023.
  • (5a) #7 04-Son-116 39.3. PPNO 2028S. ProjID 0419000047. EA 2Q770. Route 116 near Petaluma, at the intersection with Lakeville Highway. Intersection improvements. PA&ED $1,877K; PS&E $2,065K; RW Sup $435K; Con Sup $1,954K; R/W Cap $755K; Const Cap $5,144K; Total $12,230K. BC: 9/2/2024.
  • (5a) #10 08-SBd-62 15.3/28.9. PPNO 3016T. ProjID 0820000011. EA 1L290. On Route 62 in and near Yucca Valley and Twentynine Palms, from east of Yucca Mesa Road/La Contenta Road to Alfalfa Avenue/Sherman Road.

  • (5d) #5 04-Ala-84 17.0/17.4 16.9/17.5. PPNO 0481M ProjID 0414000012 EA 0J550. Route 84 near Sunol, at Arroyo De La Laguna Bridge No. 33-0043. Replace/rehabilitate bridge for scour mitigation,  bridge rail upgrade, and seismic retrofit. Replace bridge, realign roadway and construct roundabouts. Allocation changes: Con Sup $3,600K $4,000K R/W Cap $500K $1,500K; Const Cap $13,000K $16,000K; Total $22,813K $27,213K. During the environmental phase, it was determined that realigning the bridge adjacent to the existing structure will reduce construction duration, correct sharp turns, improve sight distance, avoid impacts to a nearby school, allow for construction of roundabouts for better traffic operations, and provide strong support from the community. Update postmiles, scope, delivery year, and cost to reflect these changes.
  • (5d) #7 04-Mrn-1 28.5. PPNO 0756K ProjID 0413000350 EA 0G642. On Route 1 near Point Reyes Station, at Lagunitas Creek Bridge No. 27-0023. Replace bridge. Allocation changes: Con Sup $2,500K $2,625K; Const Cap $11,552K $14,350K; Total $28,339K $31,262K. A lawsuit filed against the project has encountered court delays due to COVID-19, delaying the environmental approval. Increase in construction capital is due to structural design change, use of ultra-high performance concrete, need for cast-in-drilled-hole concrete piling, and to fulfill permit requirement for 10-year plant establishment period. Additional construction support is required for coordination and oversight of the plant establishment period.
  • (5d) #23 08-Riv-79 5.4/11.4. PPNO 3006G ProjID 0816000049 EA 1G670. On Route 79 near Temecula, from 3.1 miles north of Route 371 to 1.1 miles south of Pauba Road. Construct 8 foot shoulders and rumble strip. Allocation changes: Con Sup $7,700K $8,520K R/W Cap $1,705K $2,850K Const Cap $43,272K $57,200K; Total $63,028K $78,921K. Change description because full 8-foot shoulders will not be built in all areas. Increase construction capital due to application of cost escalation rates and due to increased retaining wall costs. Construction support costs have been re-estimated and increased. Increase R/W capital because more parcels, temporary easements, and additional mitigation costs are needed. Construction is delayed one year to address project changes during design.
  • (5d) #24 10-Cal-4 R10.3/16.4 R14.7/16.1 PPNO 3067A ProjID 1018000164 EA 0E531. Route 4 near Copperopolis and Angels Camp, from Pool Station Road to west of Appaloosa Way 2.0 miles east of Main Street to Stallion Way. Realign roadway, implement safety features by improving shoulder width, and rehabilitate culverts. Financial Contribution Only (FCO) to Calaveras County. Due to a recent estimate the project limits were shortened to stay within programmed amount. Updates to the description, post miles, and performance measure were made to align with new limits. Change in program code to better align with scope of work.
  • (5f) #3 05-SLO-1 0.0/0.3. PPNO 2650 ProjID 0516000074 EA 1H440. Route 1 near Guadalupe, at the Santa Maria River Bridge No. 49-0042; also in Santa Barbara County (PM 50.3/50.6). The bridge is scour critical and needs to be replaced. The existing bridge will be used for traffic handling during construction and then demolished. The highway will need to be realigned as a result of the new bridge location. The new bridge will provide standard lane and shoulder widths and include a protected walkway. Adjust PS&E cost from $4,290K to $3,517K, and R/W Cap from $530K to $744K, changing the total to $50,550K. Decrease PS&E due to the use of a new lower escalation rate of 3.2% and revised support estimate. Increase R/W capital due to added parcel, title and escrow, increase in mitigation permit fees, and additional underground utility identification.

2.1b. STIP Program/Project Amendments/Approvals for Notice

♠ (May) (1) STIP Amendment for Notice: The Department proposes to program $12,200,000 of  Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act) Surface Transportation Block Grant Program (STBGP) – Coordinated Border Infrastructure Program (CBI) funds for 3 new projects. 1 project in Imperial County (PPNO 1411) and 2 projects in San Diego County.
