U.S. Highway 85 - Colorado
U.S. 85 cuts through the center of Colorado, mostly combined with Interstate 25 south of Castle Rock and generally separate from Interstate 25 north of Castle Rock. The segment of U.S. 85 between Castle Rock and downtown Denver follows Santa Fe Drive, an expressway that features exits and a parallel light rail corridor. Northeast of downtown, U.S. 85 resumes at Exit 12 from Interstate 76 along the Greeley Highway (a brief unsigned overlap follows Interstate 25 and Interstate 70; U.S. 85 then exits the freeway and follows U.S. 6/Vasquez Boulevard northeast to join Interstate 76). The Greeley Highway stays east of Interstate 25 and connects Brighton, Fort Lupton, Platteville, Gilcrest, La Salle, Greeley, and Ault en route to Cheyenne, Wyoming.
