Wyoming Highway 212 (WYO 212) is a 13.5-mile (21.7 km) state highway in Wyoming. It is locally known as Four Mile Road from Wyoming Highway 219 to East Four Mile Road intersection at the curve, and College Drive from US 85/I-25 BUS. SR 212 acts like a bypass of Cheyenne, but in some portions it sneaks into the city limits. The portions that the bypass enters the city limits are between the railroad tracks and Ranchettes, and the northern terminus. SR 212 is signed north–south.

Route description[edit]

Wyoming Highway 212 begins at its south end at Interstate 25 (Exit 7) and travels east and north around Cheyenne to Wyoming Highway 219 (Old Yellowstone Highway) north of Cheyenne.[2] Beginning at I-25, Wyoming Highway 212 runs concurrent with Business Loop I-25 and Business US 87 until an intersection with South Greely Hwy. (US 85). After that intersection, WYO 212 passes Laramie County Community College and turns northward toward Interstate 80. WYO 212 intersects Wyoming Highway 221 (Fox Farm Road) at 5.1 miles (8.2 km) before heading north to an interchange with I-80. Between the Interstate 80 interchange and US 30 (Lincolnway), Wyoming Highway 212 runs concurrent with Business Loop I-80. After intersecting US 30, WYO 212 heads north and intersects busy Dell Range Blvd. which is a busy commercial strip for shopping and stores. WYO 212 then heads north and east around Cheyenne and comes to its north end at Yellowstone Road (Wyoming Highway 219) However, Wyoming Highway 212 expands beyond both of the termini. At the southern terminus, College Drive goes over Interstate 25 toward the southbound on-off ramp. 111 yards (101 m) west of the soutbound-off-on ramp, it meets Etchepare Drive. Turning left will take you to the Flying J Plaza. And so as going straight. Finally, College Drive ends.[2]

In the Ranchettes, at the intersection of Four Mile Road and WYO 219, WYO 212 reaches its northern end. Turn right for direct access for I-25 Northbound and US 85 Northbound. Turn left for direct access to I-25 south to Denver. 841 yards (769 m) to the west is Hynds Boulevard. A short 588 inches east of Hynds Boulevard, Four Mile Road enters the city limits of Cheyenne. Four Mile Road ends at Hynds Boulevard, in front of I-25.

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Cheyenne, Laramie County.
