Title supplied by cataloger.; Oversized photograph. This section of Pacific Coast Highway was formally dedicated as the 'Theodore Roosevelt Highway' when it was completed in 1929 and was generally known as the 'Roosevelt Highway' or 'Coast Highway' in the 1930s. It was designated as US 101A (Alternate) in 1936. State legislative action in 1964 changed many highway numbers in California, and US 101A became CA 1. In the same year, the state legislature offically named CA 1 'Pacific Coast Highway' in Orange, Los Angeles and Ventura Counties Cars drive cautiously through the mud covering the intersection of Sunset Blvd. and 101A (Alternate). A winter storm caused landslides and flooding along the coast highway. Graders and other construction equipment are cleaning up. A billboard advertizing Santa Ynez Inn on Sunset Blvd. sits precariously at the edge of the sheared-off cliff. Photo dated: Jan. 18, 1952.
