          Worden-Roberts Memorial Bridge."  Specifically, this resolution:  
           


          1)Recounts the lifetime accomplishments of Connie  
            Worden-Roberts, known as the Santa Clarita Valley's "Road  
            Warrior" because of her efforts related to transportation  
            planning in Santa Clarita.    

          2)Designates the Golden Valley Road Bridge over State Route 14  
            in the City of Santa Clarita as the "Connie Worden-Roberts  
            Memorial Bridge."

          3)Requests that the California Department of Transportation  
            (Caltrans) determine the cost of appropriate signs, consistent  
            with the signing requirements for the state highway system,  
            showing the special designation and, upon receiving donations  
            from non-state sources covering that cost, to erect those  
            signs.

          and maintaining state highways.  This includes the installation  
          and maintenance of highway signs


          FISCAL EFFECT:  Unknown, but the measure requests that Caltrans  
          only erect the appropriate signage upon receiving donations from  
          non-state sources covering the cost.
