State Route 196, also known as WYO 196 is a state route in the U.S. state of Wyoming. The road forms a north-south route through the central north of the state, between Kaycee and Buffalo. WYO 196 is 80 kilometers long.

Travel directions

WYO 196 runs parallel to Interstate 25 for its entire route. The road begins south of the village of Kaycee at a junction with I-25 and runs first east, later west of the I-25 parallel. The Bighorn Mountains are prominent to the west, but WYO 196 is mostly flat with remote ranches. The most important place on the route is the town of Buffalo, where it crosses US 16. Just north of Buffalo, WYO 196 terminates at a junction with Interstate 90, immediately north of the terminus of I-25.

History

WYO 196 runs over the former US 87. It was a major north-south route through eastern Wyoming at the time, from Cheyenne through Casper and Buffalo to Sheridan. Between 1960 and 1971, I-25 was opened parallel to US 87 on a new route. When the highway was completed, US 87 was routed over I-25 and the old route was renumbered WYO 196. In Buffalo and Kaycee, WYO 196 is still the main street.

Traffic intensities

WYO 196 is extremely light traffic outside of Buffalo and Kaycee, with less than 100 vehicles per day in part due to parallel I-25 and the fact that WYO 196 does not serve other places not already served by I-25. 10,000 vehicles a day drive downtown Buffalo.

State Route 210, also known as WYO 210 is a state route in the U.S. state of Wyoming. The road forms an east-west route from Interstate 80 to the state capital Cheyenne and is 60 kilometers long.

Travel directions

WYO 210 begins at a junction with Interstate 80 in a mountain area east of the town of Laramie. This is the easternmost ridge of the Rocky Mountains along I-80. WYO 210 runs parallel to I-80 to Cheyenne for some distance. There are no places on the route up to Cheyenne, but there are ranches. The landscape becomes more barren and flat towards Cheyenne. In Cheyenne, the road passes Francis E. Warren Air Force Base, before WYO 210 terminates on the west side of town at a junction with Interstate 25.

History

WYO 210 does not follow the old route of US 30 and therefore has always had a somewhat more secondary importance, although the route was almost as long as US 30 between Laramie and Cheyenne. I-80 was eventually built a little further south than WYO 210.

Traffic intensities

Outside Cheyenne, usually 500 to 700 vehicles per day drive on WYO 210. This rises to 2,000 to 5,000 vehicles in western Cheyenne.

State Route 211, also known as WYO 211 is a state route in the U.S. state of Wyoming. The road forms a north-south route between Cheyenne and Chugwater, remotely parallel to Interstate 25. WYO 211 is 71 kilometers long.

Travel directions

WYO 211 arches between Ranchettes on the north side of Cheyenne to the village of Chugwater. The road leads through some valleys and shallow canyons through a desolate steppe landscape. Interstate 25 is crossed twice, at the start and end point. I-25 is a much more direct route, WYO 211 makes a detour without actually visiting villages. There are only remote ranches in the area.

History

The road has had little importance for through traffic. US 87 and later I-25 always connected Cheyenne and Chugwater. The Platte County portion was originally numbered WYO 322.

Traffic intensities

1,800 to 2,300 vehicles per day drive close to Cheyenne, but less than 100 vehicles per day on most of the route, in some cases less than 30 vehicles per day, making WYO 211 one of the quietest roads in Wyoming.
