California State Route 211
|Main Street, Fernbridge Drive|
|Defined by S&HC § 511|
|Maintained by Caltrans|
|Length:||5.395 mi (8.682 km)|
|South end:||Ocean Avenue in Ferndale|
|North end:||US 101 at Fernbridge|
Currently, Route 211 runs about 5 miles (8 km) from roughly the intersection of Main Street and Ocean Avenue in Ferndale north to US 101 in Fernbridge, crossing over the bridge of the same name over the Eel River. However, the highway was meant to extend south through the Lost Coast region to California State Route 1 near Rockport. This remaining 103 mi (166 km) of Highway 211 is unlikely ever to be constructed because of the steep and unstable highlands of the Lost Coast. The traversable route through Humboldt and Mendocino Counties is Chemise Mountain Road, Wilder Ridge Road, and Mattole Road, but these remain small mountain roads.
This route was originally planned to be the northernmost segment of California State Route 1, but was renumbered as SR 211 after construction through the Lost Coast was abandoned. The portion of Highway 1 north of Rockport was then re-routed to terminate with US 101 in Leggett.
Except where prefixed with a letter, postmiles were measured on the road as it was when the route was established, based on the alignment that existed at the time, and do not necessarily reflect current mileage. R reflects a realignment in the route since then, M indicates a second realignment, L refers an overlap due to a correction or change, and T indicates postmiles classified as temporary (for a full list of prefixes, see the list of postmile definitions). Segments that remain unconstructed or have been relinquished to local control may be omitted. The entire route is in Humboldt County.
