State Route 151 (SR 151) is a state highway in the U.S. state of California. The route runs along Shasta Dam Boulevard in Shasta County from Shasta Dam to Interstate 5 near Shasta Lake City.

Route description[edit]

SR 151 begins at Shasta Dam, where the Sacramento River is dammed to form Shasta Lake. From Shasta Dam, the road heads south as Shasta Dam Boulevard, crossing through heavily vegetated area. The road then meets CR A18 within the city of Shasta Lake. Heading eastward, the road enters the center of Shasta Lake before meeting its eastern terminus at Interstate 5.[3]

SR 151 is not part of the National Highway System,[4] a network of highways that are considered essential to the country's economy, defense, and mobility by the Federal Highway Administration.[5] SR 151 is eligible for the State Scenic Highway System,[6] and from Shasta Dam to Lake Boulevard is officially designated as a scenic highway by the California Department of Transportation,[7] meaning that it is a substantial section of highway passing through a "memorable landscape" with no "visual intrusions", where the potential designation has gained popular favor with the community.[8]

Major intersections[edit]

Except where prefixed with a letter, postmiles were measured on the road as it was in 1964, 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 California postmile § Official postmile definitions).[1] Segments that remain unconstructed or have been relinquished to local control may be omitted. The entire route is in Shasta County.
