Highway system

Several bannered routes of U.S. Route 30 exist. In order from west to east they are as follows.

Existing[edit]

Portland bypass[edit]


U.S. Route 30 Bypass
Location: Portland, Oregon

U.S. Route 30 Bypass is the Northeast Portland Highway No. 123. It runs along the following streets before rejoining US 30/I-84 in Fairview: N.W. Bridge Street, N. Philadelphia Avenue, N. Ivanhoe Street, N. Richmond Avenue, N. Lombard Street, N.E. Lombard Street, N.E. Killingsworth Street, N.E. Columbia Boulevard, and N.E. Sandy Boulevard.

Ontario business loop[edit]


U.S. Route 30 Business
Location: Ontario, Oregon

U.S. Route 30 Business is a business route signed in the Ontario, Oregon area. This road is part of the Olds Ferry-Ontario Highway No. 455.

Marshalltown business loop[edit]


U.S. Highway 30 Business
Location: Marshalltown, Iowa
Existed: 1997–present

U.S. Route 30 Business is a business route that runs along Iowa Avenue in Marshalltown, Iowa. The route runs on the former alignment of US 30 through the town, a 1950s-era bypass of Marshalltown that was bypassed in 1997 by a freeway 34 mile (1.2 km) south of the original bypass.[1][2]

Tama–Toledo business loop[edit]


U.S. Highway 30 Business
Location: Tama, Iowa
Toledo, Iowa
Existed: 2011–present

U.S. Route 30 Business is a business route located in Tama and Toledo. In the early 2010s, a new freeway was built for US 30 between the two towns. When the freeway opened, the business route was designated along the old route.


Cedar Rapids emergency route[edit]


U.S. Highway 30 Emergency
Location: Cedar Rapids, Iowa
Existed: 1985–present

U.S. Route 30 Emergency is an emergency bypass of a segment of the US 30 freeway bypass of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Since the Cedar Rapids bypass of US 30 was completed in 1985, on occasion, traffic has had to be rerouted off the road. The bypass's proximity to the Union Pacific Railroad mainline resulted in an elevated roadway between Edgewood Road and Sixth Street SW. When strong winds come from the south, fog produced by an Archer Daniels Midland plant adjacent to the highway billows over the road making driving dangerous. The Iowa DOT set up an emergency detour from Edgewood Road SW north to 16th Avenue SW east to 6th Street SW back to US 30. The frequency of fog-related detours has decreased in recent years due to improved technology and the plant's expansion and relocation of cooling towers away from the highway.[3]

Dalton alternate route[edit]


U.S. Route 30 Alternate
Location: Dalton, Ohio
Existed: 1963–present

U.S. Route 30 Alternate is a 3-mile (4.8 km) alternate route through downtown Dalton, Ohio. It follows the original route of US 30 through town, while the mainline designation follows a 4-lane bypass.

Bedford business loop[edit]


U.S. Route 30 Business
Location: Bedford, Pennsylvania
Existed: 1982–present

U.S. Route 30 Business is a 3-mile (4.8 km) business loop through the borough of Bedford, Pennsylvania. In 1970, US 30 became a freeway around the town, to avoid congestion for travellers along the Pennsylvania Turnpike or U.S. Route 220 (today also Interstate 99), a pair of area freeways from which Bedford was a major travel stop. After the creation of the bypass, the original path of US 30 along Pitt Street became a business route, travelling as a narrow two-lane stretch through the town, with a four-lane segment near some light industrial development before its eastern terminus.

Everett business loop[edit]


U.S. Route 30 Business
Location: Everett, Pennsylvania
Existed: 1982–present

U.S. Route 30 Business is a 2-mile (3.2 km) business loop through the borough of Everett, Pennsylvania. In 1982, a freeway bypass was constructed around the town because of its low-speed limits and lack of opportunities for highway widening. As a result, the original alignment of US 30 became a business route. It is two lanes through the small, crowded town. Near the eastern edge of the routing, alternate third passing lines are provided, as the road traverses a county park and a golf course.

Chester County business loop[edit]


U.S. Route 30 Business
Location: Chester County, Pennsylvania
Length: 18.79 mi[4] (30.24 km)
Existed: 1963–present

U.S. Route 30 Business is a 19-mile (31 km) business route of U.S. Route 30 in Chester County, Pennsylvania. The route preserves the former alignment of US 30 between Sadsbury Township and East Whiteland Township. U.S. Route 30 follows a limited-access bypass between these two points.

U.S. Route 30 Business runs east from the west end of the US 30 bypass in Sadsbury Township on the Lincoln Highway, a short distance east of Pennsylvania Route 10. It heads east into Valley Township and into the city of Coatesville. In Coatesville, US 30 Business shares a brief concurrency with Pennsylvania Route 82. It runs through the heart of the city before crossing into Caln Township. Through Caln Township, between Coatesville and Downingtown, the route parallels the Amtrak Philadelphia to Harrisburg Main Line to the north. In Thorndale, US 30 Business intersects the eastern terminus of Pennsylvania Route 340.

Eastbound US 30 Business in Exton.

US 30 Business continues into Downingtown, where it is known as Lancaster Avenue. In the center of Downingtown, the route features a brief concurrency with U.S. Route 322. The route then runs concurrent with U.S. Route 322 Truck, which provides a truck bypass of a low clearance underpass on US 322. The two routes intersect the southern termini of both Pennsylvania Route 282 and Pennsylvania Route 113 before splitting at the intersection with Quarry Road in East Caln Township, where US 322 Truck turns south. At that intersection, US 30 Business features an interchange with the US 30 bypass, with access to and from eastbound US 30 provided by Quarry Road.

The road then enters West Whiteland Township, where it resumes the name of Lincoln Highway. In Exton, it intersects Pennsylvania Route 100 near the Exton Square Mall. U.S. Route 30 Business then continues into East Whiteland Township, where it ends at an interchange with the eastern end of the US 30 bypass and the U.S. Route 202 expressway.

Former[edit]

Portland business loop[edit]


U.S. Route 30 Business
Location: Portland, Oregon
Length: 5.56 mi[5] (8.95 km)

U.S. Route 30 Business was a 5.56-mile[5] (8.95 km) business route for U.S. Route 30 in eastern Portland, Oregon, running along Burnside Street and Sandy Boulevard. Unlike a standard business route, neither end was at US 30 - the west end was at Oregon Route 99E (Martin Luther King Boulevard and Grand Avenue; Pacific Highway East) at the east end of the Burnside Bridge, and the east end was at U.S. Route 30 Bypass (Northeast Portland Highway) at the Interstate 205 interchange. It crossed US 30, which is concurrent with Interstate 84, at around its midpoint. The whole route was the Sandy Boulevard Highway No. 59 (see Oregon highways and routes) until July 10, 2003, when it was given to the city (along with an adjacent part of Route 99E a month later).[6] The US 30 Business designation was removed from what had become a city street on July 5, 2007.[7]

Though the west end was just south of an interchange with US 30/I-84, there are no ramps pointing in the correct direction. The reason for this strange end is that US 30 originally exited I-84 there and ran south on Route 99E, and then turned west onto the Burnside Bridge through downtown. (It continued along Burnside Street, 18th Avenue/19th Avenue, Vaughn Street, Wardway Street and St. Helens Road.) When US 30 was realigned to use Interstate 5 and Interstate 405 around the north side of downtown, US 30 Business remained the same (except for a one-block extension west from Route 99E northbound, resulting in a milepost of -0.05 for the west end at Route 99E southbound).

The entire route was in Portland, Multnomah County.

Portland alternate route[edit]


U.S. Route 30 Alternate
Location: PortlandTroutdale
Existed: 1930s–1960s

U.S. Route 30 Alternate was an alternate of U.S. Route 30. The route began at U.S. 30 at the intersection of Bunside and Sandy, and ran along Burnside Street, Gilham Avenue, Thorburn Street, Washington Street and Stark Street (alternately known as Baseline Road due to being the baseline of the Willamette Stone), before rejoining U.S. 30 at the intersection of Stark and Crown Point Highway.[9][10] It stemmed from the desire by the city of Gresham, Oregon to be connected to U.S. 30. The route existed in maps from the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s, but has long since been deleted.


Nebraska–Iowa alternate route[edit]


U.S. Highway 30 Alternate
Location: Near Clarks, NebraskaMissouri Valley, Iowa
Existed: 1930s–1960s

U.S. Route 30 Alternate was an alternate route of US 30 that ran between Council Bluffs and Missouri Valley, Iowa. The route was created on the former US 30 alignment by the mid-1930s when US 30 was routed west of Missouri Valley on old Iowa Highway 130.[11] By the end of the 1960s, US 30 Alternate became Iowa Highway 183.[12]

Clinton alternate route[edit]


U.S. Highway 30 Alternate
Location: Clinton
Existed: 1957–1960s

U.S. Route 30 Alternate was an alternate route of US 30 that ran through Clinton, Iowa. In 1955, US 30 was rerouted over the Gateway Bridge across the Mississippi River, and Iowa Highway 136 was designated to cross the Lyons-Fulton Bridge.[13] However, by 1957, the old alignment through Clinton and across the Lyons-Fulton Bridge was numbered U.S. Route 30 Alternate.[14] By the end of the 1960s, US 30 Alternate reverted to Iowa Highway 136.[12]

Illinois toll route[edit]

Main article: Interstate 88 (west)


US 30 (1961).svg

U.S. Route 30 Toll
Location: Ford Heights-Aurora, Illinois
Existed: 1958–1960s

U.S. Route 30 Toll was the original designation for the East-West Tollway, which opened on November 21, 1958. In the 1960s, this road became Illinois Route 190 before becoming Illinois Route 5 and now I-88.

Philadelphia bypass[edit]


U.S. Route 30 Bypass
Location: Bryn Mawr-Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

U.S. Route 30 Bypass (US 30 Byp.) was a bypass route of a section of US 30 between Bryn Mawr and Philadelphia in Pennsylvania. The route began at US 30 in Bryn Mawr and headed southeast on County Line Road, forming the border between Delaware County to the southwest and Montgomery County to the northeast. US 30 Byp. fully entered Delaware County and continued through suburban areas as Haverford Road. The road curved into Montgomery County, where it passed through Penn Wynne, before it crossed into Philadelphia at the US 1/US 13 Byp. (City Avenue) intersection, where it became Haverford Avenue. The bypass route continued east along Haverford Avenue and Lansdowne Avenue, reaching its eastern terminus at another intersection with US 30.[15] PA 201 was originally designated along Haverford Road and Haverford Avenue by 1928, running between US 30 (Lancaster Pike) in Bryn Mawr and US 30 (Lancaster Avenue) in Philadelphia.[16][17] US 30 Byp. was cosigned with PA 201 by 1940, continuing east from PA 201's eastern terminus along Lancaster Avenue, then becoming concurrent with US 1/US 13 on Powelton Avenue, 31st/32nd Streets, and Spring Garden Street before rejoining US 30 across the Schuylkill River at Eakins Oval.[18] By 1950, PA 201 was decommissioned.[19] In the 1950s, the eastern terminus of US 30 Byp. was rerouted along Lansdowne Avenue to end at US 30.[15] US 30 Byp. was decommissoned in the 1960s.[20]
