Route description [ edit ]
State Route 292 begins in
Denio Junction at an intersection with State Route 140. From there, the highway heads north a distance of nearly 3 miles (4.8 km) to serve the Denio community. [1 ] The route ends at the [2 ] Oregon state line, continuing northward into Oregon as Harney County Route 201, the Fields-Denio Road. [3 ] [4 ]
History [ edit ]
SR 292 was originally part of
State Route 8A. That route, established by 1929, connected State Route 8 (now US 95) to Vya via Denio. SR 8A was realigned to bypass Denio by 1949, leaving the highway into Denio without a state highway number. [5 ] The road was given the State Route 292 designation on July 1, 1976, in the [6 ] renumbering of Nevada's state highway system. The new route number was not seen on official Nevada highway maps until 1993. [7 ] [8 ]
Major intersections [ edit ]
Mileposts on SR 292 are a continuation of State Route 140 mileposts. The entire route is in [1 ] Humboldt County.
