Signed County Route J28

While returning from the Sierra Nevada Gap in California State Route 190 I decided to take Signed County Route J28 to get CA 65 to access the Fresno Area a little faster.  From CA 190 the route of Signed County Route J28 starts on Road 320.






Signed County Route J28 is an approximately 18.5 mile Signed County Route that was defined in 1970 according to CAhighways.  CR J28 is presently unsigned like the overwhelming majority of the Signed County Routes in Tulare County.

CR J28 westward quickly transitions on Mountain Route 176 where it meets Holdridge Drive at Road 276.








Road 320 and Mountain Route 176 were part of the original alignment of CA 190 prior to the completion of the Lake Success Reservoir.  I touched on the original CA 190 alignment which can be found on this blog below:

As stated above CR J28 swings north on Road 276. 








From Road 276 the route of CR J28 swings west onto Avenue 196.





CR J28 continues on Avenue 196 where it enters Strathmore.  At Orange Belt Drives CR J28 crosses the original alignment of CA 65 which now part of CR J29.


My previous article concerning the south segment of CA 65 and it's alignment history can be found here:

About a block west of CR J29 the route of CR 28 meets the modern alignment of CA 65.  CR J28 actually continues a couple miles west of this junction to Plainview and Road 196 which carries CR J27.

New River Gorge National River Area To Become A National Park

Great news for those that enjoy National Parks, West Virginia's New River Gorge Region, or West Virginia tourism.  Included within the Fiscal Year 2021 Omnibus Appropriations Bill signed by President Trump last night (December 27th) is the New River Gorge Park and Preserve Designation Act.   The act will designate the existing New River National River and over 72,000 acres of land within it as a National Park and Preserve. The New River Gorge Bridge will continue to be the centerpiece of the new New River Gorge National Park and Preserve. (Adam Prince, 2007) The river and surrounding land, which was added to the National Park System in 1978, will be our 63rd National Park.   The designation preserves over 7,000 acres as a National Park.  This area will not allow any hunting.  The remaining 65,000 acres of the existing park will be designated as a preserve allowing hunting and fishing. The main attractions to the New River Gorge - whitewater rafting, camping, hiking, mountain bikin

Douglas Memorial Bridge; the ruins of US Route 101 and the Redwood Highway over the Klamath River

Near the village of Klamath in southern Del Norte County, California sits the ruins of Douglas Memorial Bridge which once carried US Route 101 and the Redwood Highway over the Klamath River.  The Douglas Memorial Bridge was a arch concrete span which once crossed the Klamath River.  The Douglas Memorial Bridge was noted for it's unique grizzly bear statues which still adorn the remains of the structure.  Completed in 1926 the Douglas Memorial Bridge was the original alignment of US Route 101 ("US 101") and stood until it was destroyed by the Christmas Floods of 1964.  The Douglas Memorial Bridge is named in honor of G.H. Douglas who was a Assemblyman of the First District of California.  Below the Douglas Memorial Bridge can be seen during it's prime (courtesy bridgehunter ).  Part 1; the history of the Douglas Memorial Bridge The history of what would become US 101/Redwood Highway begins with the approval of the 1909 First State Highway Bond Act .  The First Stat

The Great PA 48 Clearance Sale

It's not often that any department of transportation sells land it purchased.  They are usually in the business of acquiring land for right-of-way.  But in 1982, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation did exactly that.  Offering to buyers land it purchased just 15 years earlier for the never-built Route 48 Expressway. Background: The sale was a result of the 1970s cash crunch the PennDOT experienced.  Many projects were cut back, shelved, or eliminated.  The 'New 48', or the North-South Parkway, which was touted for nearly 20 years as a connection from the industrial Mon Valley to the Turnpike and Monroeville was one of the casualties. In the mid-late 1960s, movement to construct the new highway began with targeting a two-mile stretch of highway from the Route 48 intersection at Lincoln Way in White Oak to US 30 in North Versailles.  The plan was then to continue the highway northwards to Monroeville.  Extension south across the Youghiogheny River and to PA 51 would
