An act to amend Section 384 of the Streets and Highways Code, relating to highways.

[ Approved by Governor  September 17, 2018. Filed with Secretary of State  September 17, 2018. ]


SB 989, Wieckowski. State highways: Route 84: relinquishment.
Existing law provides that the Department of Transportation has full possession and control of all state highways. Existing law describes the authorized routes in the state highway system and establishes a process for adoption of a highway on an authorized route by the California Transportation Commission. Existing law authorizes the commission to relinquish to local agencies state highway segments that have been deleted from the state highway system by legislative enactment or have been superseded by relocation, and in certain other cases.
This bill would authorize the commission to relinquish to the City of Fremont a specified portion of Route 84 within its city limits, upon terms and conditions the commission finds to be in the best interests of the state, if the department and the city enter into an agreement providing for that relinquishment.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:

(2) A relinquishment under this section shall become effective on the date following the county recorder’s recordation of the relinquishment resolution containing the commission’s approval of the terms and conditions of the relinquishment.
(3) On and after the effective date of the relinquishment, all of the following shall occur:
(A) The relinquished portion of Route 84 shall cease to be a state highway.
(B) The relinquished portion of Route 84 shall be ineligible for future adoption under Section 81.
(C)  For the relinquished portion of Route 84, the City of Fremont shall maintain signs within its jurisdiction directing motorists to the continuation of Route 84.
