Route description[edit]

Kansas[edit]

US-383 began in Oakley, heading north along present-day US-83. A short distance north of Oakley, the route intersected I-70. In Halford, US-83/US-383 crossed over US-24. From here, the road turned northeast, where US-383 split from US-83 near Leoville. US-383 continued to the northeast until meeting US-36. At this point, the route turned east for a concurrency with US-36, crossing US-283 in Norton. Past Norton, US-383 split from US-36 and resumed northeast, reaching an intersection with US-183 near Woodruff a short distance south of the Nebraska border.[1][2]

Nebraska[edit]

In Nebraska, US-383 continued north on the present alignment of US-183, reaching an intersection with US-136 in Alma.[1][2] Prior to 1964, US-383 continued north past Alma, intersecting US-6/US-34 in Holdrege before ending at US-30 in Elm Creek.[1][3]

History[edit]

When the route was first commissioned in 1942, it ran from Oakley, Kansas to Elm Creek, Nebraska, a distance of 175 miles (282 km). In 1964, the north end of US 383 was truncated to Alma, Nebraska.
