State Route 128 ( SR 128) is a Washington state highway located in Asotin and Whitman counties, west of the Idaho state line. The 2.30-mile (3.70 km) long route runs north from (US 12) in U.S. Route 12 Clarkston to cross the Snake River and turn east after intersecting to terminate at SR 193 (SH 128) on the Idaho state line. The highway was originally created in 1964 on a State Highway 128 Pomeroy–Clarkston route, replacing (SSH 3K), which had been established in 1937; in 1991, the route was changed to its present form.

History [ edit ]
The first highway that would later become SR 128 was
Secondary State Highway 3K (SSH 3K), which was first designated in 1937. The road ran from [9 ] Pomeroy in Garfield County southeast to Peola and later northeast to Clarkston, terminating at (PSH 3), co-signed with Primary State Highway 3 (US 410) at both termini. U.S. Route 410 [9 ] During the [10 ] 1964 highway renumbering, SSH 3K became SR 128, which ran 42.19 miles (67.90 km); [11 ] the current route of the highway was occupied by [12 ] , which was SR 193 from 1969 to 1970. In 1990, SR 193 was shortened from the Secondary State Highway 3G Red Wolf Crossing to the Idaho state line, which SR 128 was extended over. A year after the extension to Idaho, SR 128 was shortened from Pomeroy to Clarkston along its current route, a loss of 42.19 miles (67.90 km) in total. [13 ] [12 ]
