Portions of state highways that have been relinquished are not state highways and become ineligible for future adoption as a part of the State Highway System.
Existing law authorizes the commission to relinquish all or a portion of Route 185 in the City of Hayward to the city, as specified.
This bill would additionally authorize the commission to relinquish all or a portion of Route 185 in the unincorporated area of the County of Alameda to that county, as specified.
