Cool CalTrans road history signs

I am fascinated by the history of our roads. It surprises me that you can drive some road that goes through incredible terrain and arrive at say a national park, where you can all kinds of interpretive info...except about that road you just traveled. I've read histories of a few, like 88 and Carson Pass, but there isn't a lot out there about them.

That's why I was really pleased to see these new CalTrans signs on my way back from Death Valley. Not even shot up. Kudos to them.

That's a neat display. Where is it exactly?
(I promise I won't shoot it.)

Re: Cool CalTrans road history signs

Here: 3625'45" N 11749'31" W

Highways 136 and 190.

And quite the wikipedia entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_State_Route_190

Wish there was more, although lots of the stuff shows on wikipedia. The visitor center for Mojave Preserve also has a bunch of cool road stuff. The auto club (Southern California AAA, eg) did a bunch of mapping and road advocacy and improvement, at least in the early days of CA. The visitor center has old photos, signs and maps from back then, probably due to the interest in route 66 and the Mojave Road.
