Historic U.S. 466

U.S. 466 was an east-west U.S. highway that extended from Morro Bay east to Kingman by way of California 41 through Atascadero, California 46 across the Central Valley, California 99 to Bakersfield, California 58 through Tehachapi and Mojave to Barstow, Interstate 15 to Baker and Las Vegas, and U.S. 93 to Boulder City, Hoover Dam, and Kingman. The route was decommissioned on July 1, 1964, and AASHO approved its elimination from I-15 in Baker to U.S. 66 in Kingman, Arizona on December 3, 1971. Remnant sections of this Historic U.S. are still drivable, and this page profiles some of those old alignments.
