Wyoming Highway 114 is a 10.82-mile (17.4 km), roughly north-south, Wyoming State Road located in northeastern Park County and extreme northwestern Big Horn County. It provides travels between the communities of Garland and Deaver.

Route description[edit]

Wyoming Highway 114 begins its southern end in the community of Garland, a census-designated place (CDP) in northeastern Park County at U.S. Route 14A. WYO 114 heads north-northwest, passing by the Powell Country Club [1], as it leaves the community.[3] Highway 114 curves north and is paralled by railroad tracks for a distance before it turns for the last time to head northeast to Deaver.[3] At 9.56 miles (15.39 km), WYO 114 crosses into Big Horn County[2] and quickly enters the town of Deaver. WYO 114 crosses railroad tracks as it reaches its northern end at US 310/WYO 789.[3]

History[edit]

Wyoming Highway 114 was once part of U.S. Route 420 (between 1926 and 1936) and Wyoming Highway 420 (between 1936 and 1939).[4] When US 14 was recommissioned to run through Greybull rather than Lovell and Powell in 1940, Wyoming Highway 14 and Wyoming Highway 114 were born. In the mid-1960s, Wyoming Highway 14 was redesignated as Alternate U.S. Route 14 while the WYO 114 designation remains till this day. [1][4]
