Sacramento Business 80

mrsman:
The east-west portion of business 80 seems to generally be signed exclusively as US 50 from 80/50 in West Sacramento to the Oak Park interchange.

At least that's what appears on the overhead signs and the larger signs at street corners.

However, at freeway entrance signage, it appears that the business 80 shield is still used.

Does anyone know if there is any timeline to address the discrepancy?  Will these Biz 80 shields ever be replaced with US 50?








jrouse:
I was acquainted with the engineer who developed the plans that removed the Business 80 designation off of US-50. (He was never a fan of multiplex signing).  He said that the street level signs would be taken care of either by Caltrans maintenance forces over time or by the cities.  There was never any formal plan to replace all those signs and I still don’t think there is.

This is at least a decade when there was the Fix 50 project when the west end US-50 aka i-305 was renovated up to the CA-51 interchange.

The Ghostbuster:
Google Maps no longer shows Interstate 305 markers along the Business 80/US 50 segment of the Capital City Freeway (there used to be a few between Interstate 80 and Interstate 5). However, there is a CA 51 marker north of the Business 80/US 50/CA 99 interchange: https://www.google.com/maps/@38.567191,-121.4700661,330m/data=!3m1!1e3?entry=ttu.

Max Rockatansky:
Why would Google show either?  I-305 is a hidden menu FHWA item that isn’t even recognized by the state of California.  CA 51 is referenced only on route via Postmile paddles.
