Watching from below were Dave Lee, president of the West Side Pioneer Association; Mike Kaelin, San Joaquin County field representative of the Lincoln Highway Association; and Onalee Koster, director of the Tracy Historical Museum.
The Lincoln Highway, the nation’s first coast-to-coast designed highway network, passed through Banta, Tracy and along Byron Road from 1913 to 1927. The route then became Highway 50.
Several years ago, three Lincoln Highway signs were installed on 11th Street. In addition to the one installed Wednesday on Byron Road, a new sign was affixed on a metal post just east of Civic Center Drive on eastbound 11th Street.
Kaelin said additional signs will soon be placed on the Old Altamont Road between Tracy and Livermore. The signs are provided by the Lincoln Highway Association.
