Route description[edit]

View east along SR 490 from its western terminus near Ely State Prison

The route begins at the entrance to the Ely State Prison, a maximum-security penitentiary north of Ely. From there, the route follows Lackawanna Road in a southeasterly direction through desert terrain for nearly 3 miles (4.8 km). SR 490 then cuts through a short mountain gap and turns nearly due south. After another 3 miles (4.8 km), the route turns easterly at a T-intersection. SR 490 then travels about 2 miles (3.2 km) further to the southeast to reach its terminus at a junction on U.S. Route 93 northeast of Ely and just south of the Ely Airport.[1][2]


SR 490 was added to the state highway system on January 17, 1992.[3]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in White Pine County.
