Highway Guide

Business Loop I-25 and Business U.S. 87 north and Wyoming 212/College Drive east
Across from the State of Wyoming welcome center, College Drive crosses over Interstate 25, with the first ramp connecting to southbound Interstate 25 and U.S. 87. Photo taken 09/01/04.
After crossing over Interstate 25, College Drive next approaches the left turn onto northbound Interstate 25/U.S. 87. From here, Business Loop I-25, Business U.S. 87, and Wyoming 212 being their northbound journey toward Cheyenne and Laramie County Community College. Photo taken 09/01/04.
These northbound Business Loop I-25, Business U.S. 87, and Wyoming 212 shields are located along eastbound College Drive near the Interstate 25 and U.S. 87 interchange (Exit 7). Like most business loops in Wyoming, the Interstate and companion U.S. routes are both signed fairly well (but not perfectly) throughout the length of the route. Wyoming 212 is a semi-belt route around the eastern half of Cheyenne. It is cosigned with Business Loop I-25 from its southern terminus until the U.S. 85 junction. Wyoming 212 continues east and then north from U.S. 85 along College Drive, while Business Loop I-25 and Business U.S. 87 merge onto U.S. 85 northbound. Photos taken 02/02/02.
Continuing east, northbound Business Loop I-25 and Business U.S. 87 prepare to split away from Wyoming 212/College Drive and turn north onto U.S. 85 toward Cheyenne. The green sign to the right of the approaching intersection indicates that all traffic headed toward Greeley, Colorado, should turn right (south). There is no mention of Wyoming 212 in the signage, but that route continues straight ahead through the intersection. Business U.S. 87 is assumed to follow Business Loop I-25 to the left. Photo taken 02/02/02.
Eastbound Wyoming 212 and Business Loop I-25/Business U.S. 87 (College Drive) approach U.S. 85, South Greeley Highway. Wyoming 212 continues east along College Drive toward Laramie County Community College, while Business U.S. 87 and Business Loop I-25 turn north toward downtown Cheyenne. Photo taken 02/02/02.

Business Loop I-25, U.S. 85, and Business U.S. 87/Central Avenue north
One block north of Lincolnway, Business Loop I-25, U.S. 85, and Business U.S. 87 (Warren Avenue) cross 17th Street. Photo taken 09/01/04.
A reassurance shield assembly is posted for Business Loop I-25, U.S. 85, and Business U.S. 87 on northbound Warren Avenue after the 17th Street intersection in downtown Cheyenne. Photo taken 09/01/04.
The next intersection on northbound Business Loop I-25, U.S. 85, and Business U.S. 87 is 18th Street. Photo taken 09/01/04.
Following that is the traffic signal for 19th Street. Photo taken 09/01/04.
Another business loop shield assembly is posted after 19th Street, but it is now signed as "To Interstate 25." Photo taken 09/01/04.
Unlike most street grid systems in Wyoming cities, Cheyenne is nearly unique with its extensive one-way street system, especially near downtown. Here, northbound Warren Avenue reaches 20th Street. Photo taken 09/01/04.
At 24th Street, Warren Avenue reaches the state museum, which includes a small park bounded by Warren Avenue, 24th Street, and Central Avenue. Photo taken 09/01/04.
Northbound Business Loop I-25, U.S. 85, and Business U.S. 87 reaches the 24th Street traffic signal; St. Mary's School is located on the northwest corner. Photos taken 09/01/04.
This shield assembly is located immediately after the 24th Street intersection. A green business loop shield is placed here, with a TO banner, which is incorrect since we are looking at the business route. It is possible that the business loop shield was incorrectly placed and it should have said To Interstate 25 ... or the TO banner should be replaced with "North." Photo taken 09/01/04.
Business Loop I-25, U.S. 85, and Business U.S. 87/Central Avenue south
