New use of county route shields in California

<< < (3/3)

Riverside is in the R range.  CA 243 used to be Riverside County R1 as an example.  R2 (Kaiser Road) and R3 (former CA 83) both are still on the books as being defined but Iíve never seen signage.

Some participating counties seem to be doing their own thing with the Letter County Route program.  Monterey County is putting up replacement county shields which omit the letter.  Tulare County pulled all their letter county route  shields aside J37 for reasons unknown.

In your opinion, is San Mateo a G county, J county, or E county?

G since San Mateo is the Central Coast grouping.

R3 is signed: http://www.floodgap.com/roadgap/371/#sec_50

Riverside is the only county in zone R, which may explain the poor signage, since there's no interjurisdictional need. At one time there was supposed to be a continuation of SDCo S16 but I don't know if that was ever signed.

That R3 from CA 79 was gone when I drove the corridor in 2019.  Regarding R2 I donít recall it being signed when I drove it in 2011, but I was more focused on Eagle Mountain and ghost towns versus highway signage at the time.

"New" is relative. I've seen some other 3 digit shields in that part of the state that are faded. See this shield in Boca, Nevada County. Lassen County historically used white on green squares for CRs, but they've been moving to pentagons.

ClassicHasClass:
Lassen used to have both (pentagons for zoned routes and squares for, I guess, secondary routes). Some of the secondary routes even had names. I suppose they're just switching everything over now.
