State Route 283 (SR 283) is the shortest state highway in the U.S. state of California, extending only 0.36 miles (0.58 km). Unsigned along its entire length, SR 283 runs from U.S. Route 101 south of Rio Dell to the north end of the Eel River Bridge in Rio Dell. The route was defined in 1970 as a transfer from a realigned Route 101. State Route 283 largely serves as a trunk route into Rio Dell while relegating the maintenance of the Eel River Bridge to Caltrans.
