California Highway 371
January 22, 2006 - Philip J. Erdelsky, firstname.lastname@example.org
California Highway 371 begins at a junction with California Highway 79 in Aguanga and runs about 20 miles northeast through the Anza Valley (see photograph) to a junction with California Highway 74, the Pines to Palms Highway. It lies entirely in Riverside County.
The junction of California Highways 78 and 371 in Aguanga used to be somewhat confusing. The alignment of roads suggested that Highway 79 was the main highway and Highway 371 was a side road. However, the placement of stop signs suggested that Highway 371 and the northern part of Highway 79 were the main highway and the southern part of Highway 79 was a side road. Not surprisingly, the junction had more than the usual number of warning signs. See photograph. Then the traffic engineers at Caltrans came to their senses, and the junction is now a standard T intersection with three-way stop signs. See photograph.
