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][2] The route ends at the Oregon state line, continuing northward into Oregon as Harney County Route 201, the Fields-Denio Road.[3][4]


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.[5] SR 8A was realigned to bypass Denio by 1949, leaving the highway into Denio without a state highway number.[6] The road was given the State Route 292 designation on July 1, 1976, in the renumbering of Nevada's state highway system.[7] The new route number was not seen on official Nevada highway maps until 1993.[8]

Major intersections[edit]

Mileposts on SR 292 are a continuation of State Route 140 mileposts.[1]The entire route is in Humboldt County.
