*****OFF POLITICS*******

1940s, 1950s and early 1960s... The Sierra Highway through the Newhall-Santa Clarita area would carry U.S. Highway 6 traffic..

The roadway going up a grade was some sort of demented idea of a three lane highway format... A suicide passing lane in the middle for for both north-south directions..

The state of California was always in mystery was so many head-on crashes would occur on this stretch of a U.S. Highway 6..

Finally, the roadway was upgraded to a four lane divided highway at a later time and date... The Antelope Valley Freeway which was constructed next to the Old Route 6 was constructed sometime in 1964 and or 1965..

The Antelope Valley Freeway was numbered California State Highway 14 and U.S. Highway 6 for a small period of time... The U.S. Highway 6 shields were eventually dropped from the freeway as time would go on...

U.S. Highway 6 would be truncated to the north at Bishop, California at its ending junction with U.S. 395... Approximate mileage would be 285 miles to the north at Bishop.....

U.S. Highway 99 above the Castaic, California area within the Tehachapi Mountains for a period of time, the 1940s, the 1950s and the early 1960s had this bad idea of a three lane, suicide feature to it also.. This faulty idea was halted and stopped with a four lane replacement format during the early 1950s....
