GT1322 - Q 669

I had no luck finding this one.  This is the main road through town and it looks as if it's been widened.  The mark is described as being 25 feet off the centerline of the road.  That would put it in the south-bound travel lane.

GT1322 was searched for at 09:50, 29 November 2014.

This mark is believed to be destroyed. The road has been widened substantially and the described grade school and high school have both been removed. Both properties are still school grounds, however the location for the grade school is now used for baseball fields, and the location for the high school is now the Caruthers High School Stadium.

No new coordinates were taken.
