State Route 222 (SR 222), named Talmage Road along its entire length, is an unsigned state highway in the U.S. state of California. It was originally constructed as a short spur route of U.S. Route 101 in Mendocino County to what was Mendocino State Hospital in Talmage. The road has remained a state highway after the hospital closed down and the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas monastery was established on the former site in 1976. The SR 222 designation legislatively ends at its intersection with East Side Road, where the road continues as Bodhi Way into the monastery complex.

Route descriptionEdit

Built originally to provide access to the long-defunct Mendocino State Hospital, it is an unsigned spur route off of U.S. Route 101 at Ukiah, ending east at the intersection with East Side Road in Talmage, outside the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas monastery & university (which is located on the grounds of the former Mendocino State Hospital). West of U.S. Route 101, Talmage Road continues as a city street under Ukiah's control.

SR 222 is not part of the National Highway System,[2] a network of highways that are considered essential to the country's economy, defense, and mobility by the Federal Highway Administration.[3]

Major intersectionsEdit

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 the list of postmile definitions).[1] Segments that remain unconstructed or have been relinquished to local control may be omitted. The entire route is in Mendocino County.
