Former US Route 99 in Imperial

(1/1)

Max Rockatansky:
The city of Imperial lies within the Sonoran Desert of Imperial County and once was part of the alignment of US Route 99.  US Route 99 originally was aligned on Imperial Avenue through the city of Imperial.  US Route 99 was realigned immediately east of Imperial Avenue onto a bypass expressway during 1950.  US Route 99 would in Imperial would be replaced by California State Route 86 during 1963 when the former was truncated to downtown Los Angeles.  The blog cover depicts the original alignment of US Route 99 along Imperial Avenue in the city of Imperial during 1940.
