Business Loop I-80 - Pine Bluffs

Home » Guides » Wyoming » Business Loop I-80 - Pine Bluffs

  

Business Loop I-80 follows U.S. 30 Business (Lincoln Highway) north from Exit 402 through Pine Bluffs. The two overlap east along side a Union Pacific Railroad line to Nebraska. 0.4 miles beyond the state line, U.S. 30 Business ends as the I-80 business route turns south along side both U.S. 30 and Nebraska L53B back to I-80. The route is unmarked in Nebraska and not signed from the freeway mainline in Wyoming.

Since 2000, this business loop has been deemphasized on exit signs from Interstate 80 in both states. Signs along the Nebraska side of the route were removed after 2009, while signs are still maintained in the town of Pine Bluffs.
