Title: Historic map of Cheyenne WY?
Post by: usends on October 28, 2016, 07:41:50 PM
Looking for a map or inset from late 1920s to mid-1930s.  Trying to determine whether US 185 ended at its junction with US 85 north of town, or if it overlapped with US 85 southward, ending at US 30 in downtown Cheyenne.

This shows no overlap: https://uwdigital.uwyo.edu/islandora/object/wyu%3A68352#page/213/mode/2up



This one is just barely too late :(

But note that, according to this map, the intersection with US 30 would have been on Capitol, not Central.

I was aware of that inset, but I was not able to make out any detail on it, not even when I downloaded it.  Is there a higher-resolution version that I'm missing?

No, but I can barely make out that it says 85/87 or 87/85.

Looking back through the Wyoming magazine the map shows US routes back to June 1926 (have to go to the other volume set).  There is an article about posting US route markers but no article indicating what Wyoming state routes are becoming US routes and where they go...
