State Route 83 is a state highway in the U.S. state of Utah. It is approximately 31 miles (50 km) long and connects the towns of Corinne and Howell in Box Elder County. It also provides access to Golden Spike National Historic Site from the east, as well as Thiokol's facility.
The route starts in the town of Corinne at its intersection with SR-13 (Promontory Road). Promontory Road shifts from SR-13 to SR-83 here and the route leaves Corinne to the northwest. The route continues in this direction past largely open land for about 14 miles (23 km), passing SR-102 (which provides access to Tremonton via Penrose, Thatcher, and Bothwell. At this point, the route starts to turn northward, passing Lampo Junction (local access road to Golden Spike National Historic Site) and the Thiokol rocket plant and test range. From this point, the route continues north, save for a 1-mile jog to the east, passing through Howell and terminating at the Howell interchange of I-84.
The road from Corinne to Park Valley Junction was commissioned as SR-83 in 1935. In 1955, the portion west of Promontory Junction was decommissioned, and was replaced by the road from Promontory Junction to the Golden Spike National Historic Site.
In 2008, SR-83 underwent a minor change when SR-13 underwent a realignment, moving the intersection of the two routes north-northwest by nearly 1 mile (1.6 km). The portion of SR-83 between the old and new intersections was transferred to SR-13, putting the western terminus of SR-83 at the new intersection.
The entire route is in Box Elder County.
