2007 UPDATE - Police Officer Louie Pompei Memorial Interchange PDF Print E-mail

THE SIGN ON THE 210 FWY EASTBOUND AT LONEHILL BLVD THAT WAS DESTROYED BY AN ACCIDENT IN EARLY 2007, HAS BEEN REPLACED ALTHOUGH ITS MISSING THE AMERICAN FLAG THAT IT HAD BEFORE.

The interchange with Route 57 (i.e., the former Route 30/Route 210 interchange) is named the "Police Officer Louie Pompei Memorial Interchange".

Named by Senate Concurrent Resolution 64, Chapter 105, on August 8, 2002. Surprisingly, the resolution refers to the Route 30/Route 210 interchange, even thought at the time of passage, Route 30 no longer existed. I guess the legislative analyst missed finding that error.

Below is the full text of the Senate Resolution.

This sign is located along the 210 West Bound at the Lone Hill On Ramp in Glendora
