U.S. Highway 116 (Decommissioned)


History

U.S. 116 is one of several U.S. routes that have been decertified in Wyoming. Along with U.S. 185, 216, 285, and 420, U.S. 116 was decommissioned early, in 1936. U.S. 187 was decommissioned years later, in 1982.

During its ten-year life (between 1926 and 1936), U.S. 116 was a short connector route from the mainline U.S. 16 at Ucross to U.S. 87E at Sheridan. This highway was about 29 miles long. In 1936, U.S. 116 and 420 were replaced by U.S. 14. Farther east, U.S. 16 between Moorcroft and South Dakota became U.S. 14, and U.S. 216 was recommissioned as U.S. 16. For more on the history of U.S. 116, 216, and 420, please see the listings for U.S. 14 and U.S. 16.
