Assemblyman passes resolution to dedicate portion of Highway 1
–Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham (R – San Luis Obispo) announced that his resolution ACR 88, which would dedicate a portion of Highway 1 in memory of Charles I. Walter, was approved by the California State Legislature.
“Charles Walter built over 200 miles of highways and freeways throughout California,” said Cunningham. “It is only appropriate to dedicate a five-mile portion of State Route 1, which runs through the old Walter family ranch, in his name.”
ACR 88 dedicates the stretch of State Route 1 from Kansas Avenue to Canet Road in San Luis Obispo in memory of Charles I. Walter. A highway contractor, Charles Walter was involved in constructing the very layout of San Luis Obispo, and played an active role in the community through his involvement in the Special Olympics, Women’s Shelter Program, San Luis Obispo Historical Society, and other organizations.
