July/August Updates to California Highways

Well, I finally got it done. The July/August updates to California Highways are in and uploaded.

Yet another two month update. My weekends are getting busier and busier.

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 Michael Ballard(2), Dominic Ielati(3), Glen Norman(4), Michael Patrick(5), and Chris Sampang(6):Route 70(3), Route 74(1), Route 77(5), US 101(1,2), Route 110(2), Route 118(2), Route 244(6), Route 262(4), I-5(1), I-15(2), I-80(2), I-205(1), I-580(1).

Although I haven't received an exit mile numbering since May, I did update some links to the exit numbering pages.

Updated the legislative information page. Noted the passage of the following:

  • ACR 122 (Blakeslee) The Robert and Pat Nimmo Memorial Highway.
    Designates the portion of Route 41 between Creston Road and El Camino Real in San Luis Obispo County as the "Robert and Pat Nimmo Memorial Highway".
    Chaptered July 23, 2008. Resolution Chapter 94.

  • ACR 127 (Tran) Garden Grove Police Officers Memorial Highway, honoring Myron L. Trapp, Andy R. Reese, Donald R. Reed, Michael L. Rainford, and Howard E. Dallies, Jr.,
    Designates the 8-mile portion of Route 22 in the City of Garden Grove, as the “Garden Grove PoliceOfficers Memorial Highway, honoring Myron L. Trapp, Andy R. Reese, Donald R. Reed, Michael L. Rainford, and Howard E. Dallies, Jr.”.
    Chaptered July 23, 2008. Resolution Chapter 95

  • SCR 119 (Dutton) The CHP Officer John Bailey Memorial Freeway
    Designate the portion of Route 15 between Route 10 and Route 210, in the City of Rancho Cucamonga and the County of San Bernardino, as the “CHP Officer John Bailey Memorial Freeway”.
    Chaptered August 18, 2008. Resolution Chapter 113.

Note that there are many more bills awaiting the Governor's signature, and thus they are presumably waiting on the state budget. Wouldn't it be a waste if they all died abornin'.
