Is It Really the End?

Designation of the end of California 61 in Alameda, but maps show it continuing beyond this point (September 2007)

On westbound Central Avenue at Webster Street in Alameda, this marker indicates the end of California 61. But the route actually continues north on Webster Street through the Webster and Posey tunnels into downtown Oakland where, again, the end of California 61 is marked. It's possible that this is a marker put up by the city. The black-on-white End banner, instead of the usual white-on-green banner, is indicative of that, even though the California 61 shield is clearly marked as property of the state.
