March Updates to California Highways

Well, better late than never. I just finished the March updates. This month's updates are dedicated to the memory of Gary Araki, who died in late February 2008. Gary was a long-time contributor to this site, and provided me with a late 1950s Renee atlas of Southern California that has proved very useful. Gary was involved in the site "The Bus Stops Here", and you can find a tribute to him on that site.

Processed backed up email changes, and based on my reading of the papers, some mailed in updates, and some updates from misc.transport.road, I updated information on the following routes, based on my research(1), and contributions of information on leads (via direct mail or Usenet) from James Bradley, Jr.(2), Paul D. DeRocco(3), Nathan Edgars II(4), Jeff Gates(5), C.A. Jencks(6), Cameron Kaiser(7), Carl Rogers(8), [info]honeywoney(9), Len "Donutbandito"(10): Route 1(9), Route 4(2,8), Route 14(3), Route 52(6), Route 81(4), Route 259(7), Route 371(6), I-5(1), I-105(5), I-215(1), I-405(1), US 101(1), Siskiyou County Route A28(10)

Updated the legislative information page. Over 1000 bills were introduced in the Assembly in just over 30 days. Noted the passage of the following:

  • ACR 63 (Keene) Lt. Leonard B. "Larry" Estes and Deputy William R. "Bill" Hunter Memorial Highway.
    Designates Route 149 in Butte County as the "Lt. Leonard B. "Larry" Estes and Deputy William R. "Bill" Hunter Memorial Highway"
    Chaptered 4/4/2008. Resolution Chapter 14

Updated the statistics on the progress of the exit mile numbering. Thanks to Don Howe of Caltrans for this information.
