Attention Sierra County, Cal.!
August 15, 1929

The Highway from Reno, through Susanville to Red Bluff, is in fair shape, with the exception of a strip of rough road that lies in one corner of Sierra Country, California.

This road is being used more and more, particularly by northbound tourists who use this cutoff as a time saver. T has but recently been called to the tourists’ attention, although many Nevadans have for a long time used it as a shorter way north, saving many hours of driving.

The strip of highway in Sierra County is the worst stretch of road. It is bumpy, full of ruts and poorly kept.

Lassen County has seen fit to make improvements until the highway through that county is as good as it is elsewhere.

It is a poor recommendation for any county to let an important strip of highway go by the board. To the average home seeker roads are important.

Sierra County would profit by spending a few thousand dollars on keeping up their end of this important highway.
