California[edit]

Sacramento, California business loop[edit]

Interstate 80 Business
Location: Sacramento, California

Interstate 80 Business, called the Capital City Freeway in its entirety, is a Business Loop of Interstate 80 through Sacramento. As it is state-maintained, unlike most business routes in California, it is assigned route numbers - part of U.S. Route 50 on its western half (5.64 miles/9.08 km), and unsigned State Route 51 on its eastern half (8.86 miles/14.26 km). The full road is a freeway, and carried Interstate 80 until 1981, when the signage and designation of Interstate 80 was transferred to the Beltline Freeway, previously signed as Interstate 880. At that time, the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) assigned the Interstate 305 designation to the west half, which met Interstate Highway standards. However, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has never signed this number, put it on any road signs, or used it internally. (Note: The Federal Highway Administration lists unsigned I-305 as 8.44 miles (13.58 km),[1] increased from 5.3 miles (8.5 km) in 1999.[2]

Interstate 80 Business
Location: West Wendover, Nevada-Wendover, Utah


Interstate 80 Business (BL-80) is an unofficial business loop of Interstate 80 (I-80) that is 2.26 miles (3.64 km) long and serves as the main street for the US cities of West Wendover, Nevada, and Wendover, Utah, along a roadway named Wendover Boulevard. Wendover Boulevard was originally part of U.S. Route 40 (US 40), which connected California to New Jersey via Nevada and Utah. A portion of the Nevada segment is concurrent with U.S. Route 93 Alternate (US 93 Alt.), and the entire portion in Utah is coterminous with Utah State Route 58 (SR-58). The Nevada Department of Transportation (Nevada DOT) applied for the business loop designation in the early 1980s but the designation has never been approved; nevertheless, signs are posted in both states. Between July 1976 and 1993, BL-80 was concurrent with State Route 224 (SR 224) in Nevada.
