LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1456, Kiley. State highways: Route 193: relinquishment.
Existing law vests the Department of Transportation with full possession and control of all state highways. Existing law describes the authorized routes in the state highway system and establishes a process for the California Transportation Commission to adopt a highway on an authorized route. Existing law requires the commission to relinquish to local agencies state highway portions that have been deleted from the state highway system by legislative enactment, and authorizes relinquishment in certain other cases. Existing law acknowledges the relinquishment of a portion of Route 193 in the City of Lincoln, and requires the city to install and maintain signs directing motorists to the continuation of Route 193 and to other routes, and to ensure the continuity of traffic flow on the relinquished portion of Route 193.
This bill would repeal those requirements on the city. The bill would authorize the commission to relinquish to the City of Lincoln the portion of Route 193 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:
