State Route 228 (SR 228) is a state highway in Elko County, Nevada, United States. Known as Jiggs Highway, the route is a spur connecting SR 227 (Lamoille Highway) in Spring Creek to the community of Jiggs. Although the actual state highway designation ends just south of Jiggs, the paved road continues south as Elko County Route 717, then turns east as Elko County Route 718, eventually reaching Ruby Valley via Harrison Pass.[2] Pavement does not actually end until just before the pass itself.
