Wyoming Highway 211 is a Wyoming State Road known as Horse Creek Road within Laramie County, and as Iron Mountain Road in Platte County.

Route description[edit]

Wyoming Highway 211 begins its south end at Wyoming Highway 219 north of Cheyenne, near I-25 and US 85/US 87 (Exit 16). Highway 211 travels west from WYO 219, and immediately intersects exit 16 of Interstate 25. At 3.8 miles, WYO 211 intersects Round Top Road, the former northern terminus of Wyoming Highway 222. WYO 211 continues west and then northwest to serve the small outlying communities of Lambert, Iron Mountain, Federal, and Horse Creek. Highway 211 temporarily ends at Milepost 42.94 as there is an approximately 20-mile (32 km) gap, and resumes at Milepost 63.01.[2] WYO 211 resumes north of the Laramie-Platte County Line along Iron Mountain Road and Jordan Road (County Route 106-2). Now named Horse Creek Road, WYO 211 reaches the Town of Chugwater at 63.03 miles (101.44 km), and has a junction with I-25 / US 87 and Wyoming Highway 313 at 63.95 miles (102.92 km). This is the northern terminus of WYO 211.[3]
