🛣 Headlines About California Highways – August 2021

(1/2) > >>

cahwyguy:
Don't worry. The promised updates to the California Highways pages are coming. Now that this headline post is out and incorporated, all that remains is reviewing this forum for nuggets of useful information amid all the chaff and fluff.

Here's some of the introduction of this post:

This post was delayed a bit because I was on vacation in Las Vegas. I plan to do some posts [on my blog, not here] about that: one looking at the subtle racism that is still present in the town that once you see, you can’t unsee. The other looking at how the town — and the roads — have changed. We all wax rhapsodic about “Classic” Vegas, but classic vegas is no more. There are no headliners like the headliners of old, there are no lounges or showrooms like the ones of old, there are no hotels like the hotels of old, there are no signs like the signs of old. There are glimmers, fleeting, of the past. But was the past better? Is today’s Vegas better? You’ll have to read my upcoming posts to know.

One thing the trip to Vegas makes clear is that change is here to stay (unless you are exchanging it for a gambling voucher or playing Pinball at the Pinball Hall of Fame). The days of driving US 91 to Vegas, seeing the signs for the hotels and for Foxy’s Deli are gone. Stuckey’s is only a memory. The roads are crowded, and filled with people trying to get there an extra five minutes earlier. The headlines this month capture the change.

One other thing the end of summer will bring us is another round of highway page updates. They are almost done, and these headlines will be included in that update. So watch this space. After the headlines are posted, all that will remain is reviewing the AARoads Pacific Southwest forum for updates. As always, if you see a naming sign in the wild (i.e., a sign with the name of a highway) and I don’t have a picture of that sign in the NAMING section for the route, please send me the photo. Your name will be immortalized as a contributor.

And lastly, all together now: “Ready, set, discuss”.

Expect the updates to be complete sometime in the next week, laptop battery permitting (it's working fine, but it is starting to swell and replacement appts are scheduled).

I didn’t widely post it on Gribblenation but given you are working on updates check out the OR 273 blog.  I added in some materials for the Hornbrook-State Line corridor of US 99.

I don't see it in the Gribblenation RSS feed, so if you can provide a pointer, it would be appreciated.
