(5) For the portion of Route 1 relinquished under this subdivision, the City of Los Angeles shall install and maintain within its jurisdiction, signs directing motorists to the continuation of Route 1 to the extent deemed necessary by the department. Construction of this as freeway was killed around the same time as the Whitnall Fwy, Route 64.

When it intersected the Route 39 freeway alignment, it turned south following the Route 39 trajectory for a mile or so before turning SE again to parallel Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) -- but slightly inland to avoid (a) the wetlands immediately north of PCH and (b) the Edison power plant in SE Huntington Beach.

Prior to the mid '70's, when the deletions took place, the Route 1 adopted alignment in L. and Orange counties was hardly linear in nature; it twisted around to avoid obstacles along or near its projected alignment (refineries in Torrance and Wilmington, business districts and CSULB in Long Beach, Huntington Harbor and the more densely-developed parts of Huntington Beach, etc.).

Note that ISTEA repealed the previous Federal-Aid System, effective in 1992, and established the functional classification system for all public roads.

In 2014, AB 2752 (Chapter 345, 9/15/2014) added Oxnard to the list of cities with relinquished portions and added segment (4), and deleted item (h) regarding relinquishment to the city of Oxnard.

According to a 1971 report by the City of Long Beach about the Pacific Coast Freeway (Route 1), most of the freeway proposals for the route in adjoining cities had been killed (with the exceptions of the route adoptions in Huntington Beach and Newport Beach), so that the freeway, once envisioned as running from Oxnard to San Juan Capistrano, would only run from the Harbor Freeway across Long Beach to the San Gabriel River Freeway (indeed, the report refers to the route as the Crosstown Freeway as often as it refers to it as the Pacific Coast Freeway).

Since the truncated freeway would be of little benefit, the Long Beach City Manager requested that the State Division of Highways remove the route from the Freeway and Expressway system.
