Route description[edit]

Wyoming State Hospital along Highway 150

Wyoming Highway 150 is the continuation of Utah State Route 150 along the Mirror Lake Scenic Byway.[1] WYO 150 travels north toward Evanston, passing though the community of Beartown and west of Sulphur Springs Reservoir.[2] Highway 150 enters Evanston from the south, passing the Wyoming State Hospital before reaching its northern end at an interchange shared with the southern terminus of Wyoming Highway 89 at exit 5 of Interstate 80/US Route 189. Wyoming Highway 89 takes over as the roadway north of I-80/US 189.[1][2]

This scenic road, open only during the summer over the High Uinta Mountains in Utah, is known as the Mirror Lake Scenic Byway. Wyoming Highway 150 itself does not close during the winter season except during harsh conditions, while Utah State Route 150 is closed at the heights of the High Uinta Mountains for the winter.

Wyoming 150 follows State Control Route 2100 for its entire length .[1]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Uinta County.
