“category Proposal: Abandoned Roads”

Recommended Posts

Often I see an abandoned road paralleling the new road or the old route has been abandoned to eliminate a part of road difficult to maintain. There are good examples of this on HWY 101 where the new route now goes through a cut in a ridge in order to bypass a cliff that would crumble under the Old route. Another example is HWY 46 in California. The abandoned route is visible in a field and somewhere along that forgotten road is the spot where James Dean died. HWY 50 through Nevada has many Old sections that are abandoned. I often imagine my Grandfather driving his Buick on the old route.

 

I think this would make a good category as it will start a list of these forgotten pieces of pavement history. I would encourage people wishing to log a find to enter a date the old road was abandoned.
