State Route 200 (SR-200) is a 1.565-mile-long (2.519 km) state highway in the U.S. state of Utah. It serves to connect Lewiston's Center Street (SR-61) to the Idaho border. The roadway continues north past the state line into the city of Preston, Idaho.

Route description[edit]

SR-200 begins eight blocks west of the city center of Lewiston along a roadway designated 800 West. Heading due north from Center Street (SR-61), SR-200 travels through rural farmland, only intersecting one street, 800 North, before reaching the Idaho state line.[2] The shoulder of the highway is less than one and nine-tenths feet (58 cm) wide, thus is not considered a bicycle friendly route.[3] The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) classifies the route as a collector route.[4] Every year, UDOT conducts a series of surveys on its highways in the state to measure traffic volume. This is expressed in terms of average annual daily traffic (AADT), a measure of traffic volume for any average day of the year. In 2012, UDOT calculated that 1,145 vehicles used the highway on an average day, representing a decrease in traffic over the last two years (1,170 in 2011, 1,175 in 2010).[5] Eighteen percent of this was truck traffic.[6]

History[edit]

The roadway linking Lewiston to Preston has existed since at least 1937.[7]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Cache County. [8]
