A number of minor state highways in the U.S. state of Utah were deleted by the State Legislature in 1969.

State Route 50[edit]

Main article: Utah State Route 122

State Route 50 was originally a branch of SR-122, but was split off as its own route in 1935, running from Wattis southeast to SR-122 east of Hiawatha.[1] This route was deleted in 1969, with the route number immediately reused for the road between Roy and Ogden (Riverdale Road), which was subsequently renumbered to SR-26 as part of the 1977 Utah state route renumbering in order to avoid confusion with US-50.[1]

State Route 53[edit]

State Route 53 connected SR-8 (now US-6/US-191) at Wellington with SR-6 (now US-40) west of Myton via Nine Mile Canyon Road. The road was taken over on January 10, 1916, and immediately reused to replace part of SR-37 in Ogden after its 1969 deletion.

State Route 55[edit]

State Route 55 connected Cedar Breaks Junction on SR-14 to the south boundary of Cedar Breaks National Monument, a distance of about 2.5 miles (4.0 km). This route was designated on June 17, 1927[2] as part of SR-14, and split in 1931. It was withdrawn as a state route in 1969 and re-designated as part of SR-143. Later, in 1985, this route was split off from SR-143 and designated as a distinct highway, SR-148, while SR-143 was extended to run along the rest of Panguitch Lake Road, north and east of Cedar Breaks until US-89 in Panguitch. SR-148 now follows the same route of former SR-55. The SR-55 route number was reused in 1975 as a business loop for US-6 in Price.

State Route 58[edit]

State Route 58 was transferred from State Route 1 (US-91) on September 27, 1965, consisting of the old road through Kanarraville, between the present exits 42 and 51 of I-15. It was deleted in 1969 and immediately reassigned to old SR-2 (US-40) through Wendover.

State Route 63A[edit]

State Route 64[edit]

State Route 64 - River Road from the Arizona state line north to SR-1 (US-91) in St. George - was added to the state highway system on May 12, 1931. It initially ran through St. George via 700 South, 700 East, 300 South, and 200 East, but was moved to use 700 East all the way to SR-1 (100 North) on January 25, 1963. After its deletion in 1969, the number was not reassigned until 1975, when it was used on what had been a spur of SR-26 through Holden.[3]

State Route 67[edit]

Main article: Utah State Route 281

State Route 67 served Dixie College in St. George connecting US-91 (SR-91, now SR-34) to the college. It was created in 1935 as SR-191, renumbered as SR-181A in 1945, and as SR-67 in 1962. As part of the renumbering of highways serving state institutions, it was renumbered as SR-281 in 1969. The 67 route number was reused in 2008 for the newly built Legacy Parkway.

State Route 76[edit]

Main article: Utah State Route 271

The road from Parowan northeast through Paragonah and southwest through Summit was added to the state highway system in 1910,[4] and in the 1920s it became part of SR-1 and US-91.[5] In 1968, with the construction of I-15 in the area imminent, SR-1 was moved to the proposed bypass, and the old route of SR-1 became State Route 38 (I-15 near Summit to Center Street in Parowan), SR-143 (Center Street to near 500 North in Parowan, and then continuing to I-15), and State Route 76 (near 500 North in Parowan to I-15 near Paragonah). However, the state legislature did not concur with the latter, and the old road through Paragonah was maintained only until I-15 was completed.[6] Construction of I-15 was finished by 1975, and included a second Parowan interchange that had not been in the 1968 plans. SR-143 was rerouted to turn south on SR-38 (old SR-1) in Parowan and west on 200 South to the new interchange, and the remainder of SR-38 was removed from the state highway system. (The 1968 extension of SR-143 was redesignated SR-274.)[7] The road from Parowan through Paragonah to I-15 (former State Route 76) was restored to the state highway system in 1978 as SR-271.[8]

The route number was reused in 1977 for a connector between SR-72 and I-70 at Fremont Junction in Sevier County.

State Route 78[edit]

State Route 78 ran from SR-8 in Orem east to SR-7 at Edgemont along 800 South.[9] It was added as a state highway on May 14, 1935, and extended west to SR-114 at Vineyard until 1953. The number was not reused until the 1977 renumbering, for former SR-163.

State Route 86[edit]

State Route 86 ran from SR-6 in Bridgeland north via Upalco and Altamont to Altonah. It was added as a state highway on May 14, 1935. In 1964, the portion from Upalco to Altamont was transferred to SR-87, and the portion from Altamont to Altonah was transferred to former SR-221, leaving SR-86 with only about 10 miles of road. This short remainder was deleted in 1969, and the number was reused in 1975 to designate a highway that currently runs from Henefer to I-84.

State Route 90[edit]

State Route 91[edit]

State Route 91 was created in 1935, and ran from Fairview at SR-32 (now US-89) northerly 7.5 miles (12.1 km) to Milburn.[10] It was deleted in 1969 and the route number was reused as the legislative designation for US-91. The road is now known as the Fairview Milburn Highway.[11]

State Route 92[edit]

State Route 94[edit]

State Route 98[edit]

State Route 98 was established May 14, 1935 and ran from Beryl Junction (SR-56 at SR-18 between Newcastle and Modena) north to Beryl in Iron County.[12][13] The original highway was approximately 12 miles (19 km) long and is now known as the Beryl Highway.[13] It was deleted from the state highway system in 1969, and SR-98 was immediately reused for an arterial highway in Weber County. in 2000, this highway was consolidated with SR-97 and deleted.[12]

State Route 99[edit]

State Route 120[edit]

State Route 120 connected SR-18 at Enterprise west to the Nevada border.[14] Originally, this route was added in 1941 as a branch of SR-18 from Enterprise west to Nevada, where SR 75 continued as a shortcut to Panaca,[15] but was split off as SR-120 in 1945.[16] The route number was immediately reused to designate a new SR-120 which doubles as Interstate 70 Business (Richfield, Utah).

State Route 126[edit]

State Route 129[edit]

State Route 133[edit]

State Route 134[edit]

State Route 134 was established on May 9, 1939 and ran from SR-35 about six miles north of Duchesne northward to Mountain Home. On May 13, 1941, it was extended north to the Uintah and Ouray Indian Reservation. In 1964, the southern portion from SR-35 to about 3 miles south of Mountain Home (at the intersection with former SR-221) was transferred to SR-87. The remainder was deleted in 1969, and the number was reused in 1977 when former SR-40 was renumbered to make room for US-40 in the 1977 renumbering.

State Route 135[edit]

State Route 135 was established June 26, 1933 as the highway from Delta via Oak City to the boundary of Fishlake National Forest in Millard County.[17] In 1953, the portion between Delta and Oak City was removed from the route and transferred to SR-125. In 1969, the remainder of the route was deleted and the route numbered was reassigned to Sevier County as the road from SR-119 near Richfield northeasterly to SR-24 near Sigurd. This route was subsequently deleted in 1992 and reassigned as part of SR-118.

State Route 136[edit]

State Route 136 was established on June 26, 1933 as the road from Kanab west to Johnson Canyon, then north to Alton, then west to SR-11 (now known as US-89) at Alton Junction, essentially forming an eastern loop off then SR-11.[18] On May 14, 1957, the 8.1 miles (13.0 km) from Kanab to Johnson Canyon was split off as part of a new route, SR-259 (built to connect Kanab with then under construction Glen Canyon Dam and later became part of the mainline of US-89 and deleted in 1977).[19] SR-136 was deleted in 1969 and reused in 1985 for a short connector between US-50 and US-6 just west of the city of Delta.[18]

State Route 141[edit]

State Route 141 was established in 1933 as the road from Hatton east to what was then Route 1[20] (now SR-133), a distance of about 1.6 miles (2.6 km).[21] The route was deleted in 1969 and the route number was immediately reused for current-day SR-141.

State Route 144[edit]

State Route 144 was established on June 26, 1933 and ran from SR-1 (US-91, now I-15) near the Washington/Iron county line westward via New Harmony to the Dixie National Forest boundary.[22] The route underwent numerous minor changes until being withdrawn from the state highway system in 1969. The route number was reused in 1978, when the state legislature designated Utah State Route 144 as the road from SR-92 in American Fork Canyon north to Tibble Fork Reservoir.

State Route 145[edit]

State Route 148[edit]

State Route 148 originally connected Lynndyl and Leamington to SR-132. This original alignment was swapped with SR-132 in 1945 to create the current-day alignment of SR-132, with SR-148 now connecting that highway to SR-26 (US-50, now US-6) near Jericho. This route was deleted in 1969. The route number was reused in 1985 when SR-143 was realigned, with the modern-day SR-148 following the route of former SR-55.

State Route 158[edit]

State Route 158 was established in 1933 as the road connecting Croydon with what is now Interstate 84 at Devil's Slide.[23] The route remained unchanged until 1969, when it was deleted from the state highway system. The route number was not reused until 1990, when the current route was established, running from Eden Junction to the parking lot at Powder Mountain Ski Resort.[23]

State Route 159[edit]

State Route 159, now known as "Dividend Road", was originally part of SR-26, where it went through the town of Dividend (now a ghost town) just east of Eureka. Dividend was bypassed by a new route through Homansville Canyon in about 1931, and the old route (Dividend Road) initially became a branch of SR-26.[24] It was renumbered State Route 159 in 1945[25] and deleted from the state highway system in 1969.[26]

State Route 165[edit]

State Route 166[edit]

State Route 167[edit]

Main article: Utah State Route 147

State Route 167 was originally split off as the Mapleton end of State Route 147 in 1935. It was consolidated back into State Route 147 in 1969. The route number went empty until 1985, when it was used to designate Trappers Loop Road as a state highway.

State Route 170[edit]

State Route 170 originally connected Richmond at SR-1 (now US-91) west via Trenton to Clarkston at SR-142 in Cache County. In 1969, the route was absorbed into SR-142 and the route was deleted from the state highway system.[27] The route number was briefly reused from 1992-1993 for a cutoff between US-50 and SR-24 near Aurora, but was renamed soon after to SR-260 to avoid confusion from having SR-170 and I-70 in such close proximity.[27]
