Route descriptionEdit

 
View east along SR 267 near Truckee Tahoe Airport during fog.

The route begins at Interstate 80 in Truckee with an interchange. It then continues through Nevada County until it reaches the county line. In Placer County, it meets its east end at SR 28 in Kings Beach.

SR 267 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] The route from I-80 to Brockway Road is named the CHP Officer Glenn Carlson Memorial Bypass after CHP officer Glenn W. Carlson, who was killed along the route in 1963.[4]

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).[5] Segments that remain unconstructed or have been relinquished to local control may be omitted. The numbers reset at county lines; the start and end postmiles in each county are given in the county column.
