Wyoming Highway 216 is a US state highway in the northeastern part of Laramie County, Wyoming named Albin Road.

Route description[edit]

Wyoming Highway 216 begins its west end at an intersection with US 85, that is located 26 miles (42 km) northeast of the I-25/US 85 split.[1] WYO 216 travels east intersecting Wyoming Highway 213 (Burns North Road) after just 3.4 miles.[2] Highway 216 continues east, passing through Albin between 15.83 and 16.18 miles.[1]At 16.47 miles (26.51 km), WYO 216 intersects Wyoming Highway 215 (215's northern terminus). WYO 216 then continues east to Laramie County Route 164 (State Line Road), located on the NebraskaWyoming state line where it terminates.[2]

History[edit]

The Wyoming Highway 216 designation was originally commissioned in 1926 in Weston and Crook counties. US 16 and Wyoming Highway 116 were created the same year. WYO 216 began as a state route, but was quickly added to the U.S. route system as US 216. However, in 1936, US 216 became part of US 16, and the US 216 designation was deleted.[1]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Laramie County.
