My question concerns a road sign on Palmdale Rd. in Victorville. Right before Amethyst going west and right after Amethyst going east is a sign for a Greenwood road. I have never seen the road and wonder if there really is a Greenwood Road or is it just a mistake?

Brian's Answer:

Palmdale Road is State Route 18, operated by Caltrans. There is no public road named Greenwood that connects to Palmdale Road. Caltrans should be contacted about the signs.

I hope this answers your question, Jeanette. Thanks for asking.
