State Route 82 (SR-82) is a state highway in the U.S. state of Utah. It is a short connector road, only 3.178 miles (5.114 km) long, that connects the towns of Tremonton and Garland in Box Elder County.
State Route 82 starts at SR-102 (Main Street) in Tremonton and travels north as 300 East. As it leaves Tremonton and enters the town of Garland it becomes Main Street and continues north into the center of town. At the two-mile point, the route intersects Factory Street (the central east–west road in Garland) and turns east onto the street. From here the route continues east for 0.73 miles (1.17 km) out of Garland, then turns north onto 5400 West for less than half a mile before ending at its intersection with SR-13.
The road from SR-1 (US-91, now SR-90) in Brigham City north to the Idaho state line became a state highway in 1910. It was initially assigned the SR-17 designation in the 1920s, but in 1927 the state legislature changed the designation to SR-41 (now SR-13). The portion south of SR-42 (now SR-102) in Tremonton became part of U.S. Route 30S in 1926, and the entire route became Utah's portion of a southern extension of U.S. Route 191 in the late 1930s. A new alignment around Tremonton and Garland was defined in 1935, with the old route becoming State Route 82.
The southern half-mile of the route was originally located three blocks to the west of the modern route, along Tremonton Street, going north to 600 North, then east to 300 East. In 1962, this section was rerouted to its current-day alignment for safety and economic reasons, with the original route being transferred to local jurisdiction.
On May 20, 1977, State Route 82 was renumbered as State Route 126. This was because the legislature redesignated SR-82 as the legislative designation for what was then I-80N. This renumbering was only temporary, however, as on August 26 that same year, I-80N was renumbered to what is now I-84, releasing SR-82 back to its original route. At the same time, SR-84 was designated as I-84, and the former SR-84 was renumbered to the newly vacated SR-126.
The entire route is in Box Elder County.
