CA 203

<< < (4/5) > >>

Quillz:
So I might be suffering from a Mandela effect here. I know that at one point, there was a proposal to bring CA-203 over the Sierra by following the San Joaquin River. Thing is, I can't find a map of this. I'm sure I've seen one in the past. I've found several articles about this planned trans-Sierra highway, but most just discuss why it wasn't built. If you trace the general course of the river from Devils Postpile, you can see a potential route eventually ending at CA-168 near Huntington Lake. But I can't find this map... Did it ever exist? Maybe it's just something I drew myself.

If anyone has a map showing this proposed routing, can you share it?

EDIT: Okay, I actually found a sketch on this message board. By me. I guess I did it some years ago and totally forgot. Seems to confirm that there wasn't even an actual proposal on a map, so the idea didn't get very far then.

I donít think it ever got that far.  It would have popped out around what is now Sierra National Forest Route 81/Mammoth Pool Road.

Yes... I edited my post. What happened was some years ago, I actually did a little mock-up on Google Maps that followed the course of the river. I was re-reading on the proposal last night and realized I couldn't find a map when I was sure I had seen one. Turns out I was remembering my own Google Maps mock-up.

Part of me wonders that if the Forest Service has just extended Mammoth Pool Road would have anyone actually cared enough to object?  Somehow I donít think so given how very few people realize Sherman Pass Road exists.

I can confirm that CA 203 goes all the way to the Madera County line. The END shield you saw is a turnable sign for winter maintenance. Mammoth mountain takes over maintenance from that sign to main lodge during the winter months and Caltrans maintains it the rest of the year. I work for Caltrans District 9
