History[edit]

Previous route[edit]

When SR-55 was first formed in 1927, it ran from SR-14 to the south boundary of Cedar Breaks National Monument. It maintained this designation until its subsequent deletion in 1969.[2]

Current route[edit]

In 1975 the route was formed again, this time forming a partial loop around SR-27, now US-6/US-191. Since then, the route has not been changed.[2]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Price, Carbon County. [3]
