Former California State Route 224

This previous month I drove what was California State Route 224 from US 101/CA 1 south to Carpinteria State Beach.


CA 224 was a 1 mile State Highway which was routed from US 101/CA 1 through Carpinteria to Carpinteria State Beach.  The route of CA 224 followed Casitas Pass Road, Carptineria Avenue and Palm Avenue to the State Beach Gate.


The route that became CA 224 dates back to the creation of Legislative Route 152 which was added to the State Highway System in 1933 according to CAhighways.org.  In it's original configuration LRN 152 simply connected from US 101/LRN 2 on Carpinteria Avenue south to Carpinteria State Beach.  The earliest route of LRN 152 can be seen on the 1935 California Division of Highways Map of Santa Barbara County.


During the 1964 Renumbering CA 224 was assigned to LRN 152.  This change can be seen on the 1964 State Highway Map.


According to CAhighways.org CA 224 was legislatively deleted as a State Highway.  My approach to former CA 224 was via Casitas Pass Road south from CA 192.  At Casitas Pass Road and US 101/CA 1 I picked up the route of former CA 224.


CA 224 south followed Casitas Pass Road and made a right hand turn onto Carpinteria Avenue.



Former CA 224 south briefly was on Carpinteria Avenue (former US 101) before taking a left hand turn onto Palm Avenue.



CA 224 south followed Palm Avenue south over the Union Pacific tracks to the gate of Carpinteria State Beach.

California State Route 232

This past month I drove the entirety of California State Route 232 in Ventura County. CA 232 is an approximately 4 miles State Highway aligned on Vineland Avenye which begins near Saticoy at CA 118 and traverses southwest to US Route 101 in Oxnard.  The alignment of CA 232 was first adopted into the State Highway System in 1933 as Legislative Route Number 154 according to CAhighways.org. CAhighways.org on LRN 154 As originally defined LRN 154 was aligned from LRN 9 (future CA 118) southwest to LRN 2/US 101 in El Rio.  This configuration of LRN 154 between CA 118/LRN 9 and US 101/LRN 2 can be seen on the 1935 California Division of Highways Map of Ventura County. 1935 Ventura County Highway Map According to CAhighways.org the route of LRN 154 was extended west from US 101/LRN 2 to US 101A/LRN 60 in 1951.  Unfortunately State Highway Maps do not show this extension due to it being extremely small. During the 1964 State Highway Renumbering LRN 154 was assigned CA 232.  Of n

Former US Route 50 and the South Lincoln Highway from Folsom east to Placerville

The corridor of Folsom of Sacramento County east to Placerville of El Dorado County has been a long established corridor of overland travel dating back to the California Gold Rush.  The Folsom-Placerville corridor was once part of the path of the Lake Tahoe Wagon Road which became the first California State Highway and later the South Lincoln Highway.  In time the South Lincoln Highway's surface alignment was inherited by US Route 50.  The Folsom-Placerville corridor also includes the communities of; Clarksville, Shingle Springs and El Dorado. Part 1; the history of the Lake Tahoe Wagon Road, South Lincoln Highway and US Route 50 through Folsom-Placerville Folsom is located on the American River/Lake Natoma of eastern Sacramento County.  That lands now occupied by the City of Folsom were part of Rancho Rio de los Americanos prior to the finding of gold at Sutter's Mill during 1848.  During the California Gold Rush the lands of Rancho Rio de los Americanos were purchased by Jose

US Route 101 through Gaviota Pass

US Route 101 in the Santa Ynez Mountains of Santa Barbara County, California passes through Gaviota Pass.  Gaviota Pass is most well known for being part of El Camino Real and the namesake Gaviota Tunnel which opened during 1953.  Since 1964 Gaviota Pass and US Route 101 have also carried a multiplex of California State Route 1.   Part 1; the history of the Gaviota Pass corridor Gaviota Pass is historic path of travel through the Santa Ynez Mountains of Santa Barbara County.  Gavoita Pass was a known route through the Santa Ynez Mountains which was utilized by the Chumash tribes before the arrival of Europeans.  Gaviota Pass was first explored by Spanish during the 1769 Portola Expedition of Las Californias.  The Portola Expedition opted to follow the coastline northward fearing that the established Chumash path through Gaviota Pass was too narrow to traverse.  In time Gaviota Pass became a favored established path of Spanish travel which bypassed the hazardous coastline as part of El
