SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) - Signs of the past are going up on a thoroughfare in several San Diego neighborhoods.
     
Historic "Route 101" signs have been installed along Morena Boulevard, which runs through Bay Park, Morena and Linda Vista.
     
Before pacific highway opened in 1933, Morena Boulevard was part of the 101, which stretched from the Mexican border to Washington State.
     
Several community groups raised money and purchased the signs to recognize the highway's historic significance.
     
A total of 8 signs were purchased for a little more than $700.
