U.S. Route 50
U.S. Route 50
(US 50) is a major east–west route of the U.S. Highway system, stretching just over 3,000 miles (4,800 km) from West Sacramento, California, to Ocean City, Maryland, on the Atlantic Ocean. Until 1972, when it was replaced by Interstate Highways west of the Sacramento
Sacramento
area,[3] it extended (by way of Stockton, the Altamont Pass, and the Bay Bridge) to San Francisco, near the Pacific Ocean. The Interstates were constructed later and are mostly separate from this route. It generally serves a corridor south of Interstates 70 and 80 and north of Interstates 64 and 40. The route runs through mostly rural desert and mountains in the Western United States, with the section through Nevada
Nevada
known as "The Loneliest Road in America". In the Midwest, US 50 continues through mostly rural areas of farms as well as a few large cities including Kansas
Kansas
City, Missouri; St. Louis, Missouri; and Cincinnati, Ohio. The route continues into the Eastern United States, where it passes through the Appalachian Mountains

before heading through Washington, D.C.

From there, US 50 continues through Maryland
Maryland
as a high-speed road to Ocean City. Signs at each end give the length as 3,073 miles (4,946 km), but the actual distance is slightly less,[2] due to realignments since the former figure was measured. US 50 passes through a total of 12 states; California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, and Maryland, as well as the District of Columbia. US 50 was created in 1926 as part of the original U.S. Highway system. The original route planned in 1925 ran from Wadsworth, Nevada
Nevada
east to Annapolis, Maryland
Maryland
along several auto trails including the Lincoln Highway, Midland Trail, and the National Old Trails Road. The final 1926 plan had US 50 running from Sacramento, California
Sacramento, California
east to Annapolis with a gap in west Utah
Utah
that was bridged by running the route north via Salt Lake City before rerouting it to U.S. Route 6
U.S. Route 6
in the 1950s. US 50 was extended west from Sacramento
Sacramento
to San Francisco in the 1930s, replacing U.S. Route 48; this was reversed in 1964 when Interstate 580 replaced much of the route between the two cities. In addition, US 50 was extended east from Annapolis to Ocean City prior in 1949, replacing a portion of U.S. Route 213. US 50 had two split configurations into U.S. Route 50N and U.S. Route 50S, one in Kansas and another in Ohio
Ohio
and West Virginia; both of these instances have been removed.

desert which are called Basin and Range. East of Carson City, the road enters the heart of the Great Basin, passing by few communities and minimal services, giving it the name "Loneliest Road in America" until reaching Utah.[2] In Utah, US 50 also passes through desolate, remote areas with few inhabitants. After crossing the Confusion Range
Confusion Range
via Kings Canyon and the House Range, the road traverses the north shore of the endorheic Sevier Lake. In Holden, US 50 shortly overlaps Interstate 15

City Area. In Missouri, US 50 leaves I-435 for Interstate 470 splitting at Lee's Summit. US 50 runs as a four-lane divided highway across the Western Plain to Sedalia where it continues as a two-lane road until reaching California, MO about 20 miles west of Jefferson City. The road continues as a four-lane divided highway into Jefferson City where it joins US 63 just south of the Missouri
Missouri
River Bridge. It continues 12 miles east of Jefferson City to the Osage River where US 63 splits off to the south. It then continues as a two-lane road as it traverses the northern sections of the Ozark Highlands east to Union where it begins an overlap with Interstate 44

east of Clarksburg, US 50 has been upgraded as part of the four-lane divided Corridor D. US 50 is a curving two-lane mountain road, east of Clarksburg through Grafton, a bit of Maryland, and Romney to Winchester. This portion of the road is so curvy that locals claim "you can meet yourself coming". The land flattens out after the route crosses the Blue Ridge Mountain

and south of the White House. After turning north on 6th Street Northwest, it exits the city to the northeast on New York Avenue. Upon crossing into Maryland, it passes the south end of the Baltimore-Washington Parkway and becomes the John Hanson Highway, a freeway to Annapolis. The portion of this highway east of the Capital Beltway (I-95/I-495) is also designated, but not signed as, Interstate 595, and U.S. Route 301 joins from the south at Bowie. The freeway continues beyond Annapolis as the Blue Star Memorial Highway which crosses Chesapeake Bay on the Chesapeake Bay
Chesapeake Bay
Bridge and continues to Queenstown. There the Blue Star Highway continues northeast as US 301, while US 50 turns south, passing through Easton to Cambridge, and then east through Salisbury to Ocean City on the four-lane divided Ocean Gateway. US 50 ends near the Atlantic Ocean

For more details, see the state-specific articles linked in the route description above. Before the creation of the Interstate Highway System
Interstate Highway System
after World War II, US 50 was a major east–west route. Numbered highways in the United States follow a pattern of odd numbers for north–south routes and even numbers for east–west routes, hence the designation of "50" for this route. In the preliminary report, approved by the Joint Board on Interstate Highways in late 1925, US 50 ran from Wadsworth, Nevada to Annapolis, Maryland, passing through Pueblo, Colorado; Kansas
Kansas
City, Missouri; Tipton, Missouri; St. Louis, Missouri; Cincinnati, Ohio, and Washington, D.C.[5] The route did not directly replace any auto trail, instead combining portions of many into one continuous route. It followed the historic Northwestern Turnpike
Northwestern Turnpike
across West Virginia, and portions of other historic roads. Major auto trails followed, including the Midland Trail
Midland Trail
in part of Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, and parts of Utah
Utah
and Colorado. The National Old Trails Road
National Old Trails Road
(Old Santa Fe Trail) was designated in Kansas
Kansas
and eastern Colorado, and the Lincoln Highway
Lincoln Highway
was constructed in Nevada.[6] In most states that had numbered their state highways, US 50 followed only one or two numbers across the state.[note 1] One major controversy related to the preliminary route of US 50. The through route had been assigned to the Old Santa Fe Trail, while the spur U.S. Route 250
U.S. Route 250
followed the competing New Santa Fe Trail to the south. As a compromise, the Joint Board on Interstate Highways approved a split configuration—U.S. Route 50N and U.S. Route 50S—in January.[7] Another problem was in western Utah, where no improved road existed for US 50 to use. The final numbering plan, approved in November 1926, left a gap in US 50 between Ely, Nevada
Nevada
and Thistle, Utah. Finally, rather than ending US 50 at Wadsworth, where the Lincoln and Victory Highways merged, it was sent over the Lincoln Highway's Pioneer Branch, past the south side of Lake Tahoe, to Sacramento, California.[1][8]

U.S. Route 6
was marked along the direct, but still partially unimproved, route in 1937; it was finally paved in 1952,[10] and US 50 was moved to it within a few years.[11] Another straightening was made in 1976, when US 50 in central Utah
Utah
was moved south onto the new extension of Interstate 70
Interstate 70
at the request of the National Highway 50 Federation,[12][13] a group dedicated to promoting US 50.[14] Among other things, the group has unsuccessfully pushed for an extension of Interstate 70
Interstate 70
west along US 50 to California.[15] The north–south split in Kansas
Kansas
was eliminated in the late 1950s, with the south route—which was to be US 250—becoming part of US 50, and most of US 50N becoming part of a new U.S. Route 56.[16] Another split was located between Athens, Ohio
Ohio
and Ellenboro, West Virginia
Virginia
from the late 1920s to the mid-1930s, when US 50 went back to its original southern route; that U.S. Route 50N is now Ohio
Ohio
State Route 550 and part of West Virginia
West Virginia
Route 16.[17] At its west end, US 50 was extended south from Sacramento
Sacramento
along U.S. Route 99 to Stockton and west to the San Francisco Bay Area, replacing U.S. Route 48, by the early 1930s.[18] US 50 was officially cut back to Sacramento
Sacramento
in the 1964 renumbering, replaced by Interstate 580,[19] but remained on maps and signs for several more years.[20][21] US 50 was extended east from Annapolis to Ocean City, Maryland
Ocean City, Maryland
in 1949, three years prior to the opening of the Chesapeake Bay
Chesapeake Bay
Bridge in 1952; this extension replaced Maryland
Maryland
Route 404 between Annapolis and Wye Mills and U.S. Route 213

between Wye Mills and Ocean City. Prior to the bridge opening, US 50 used a ferry across the Chesapeake Bay between Sandy Point and Matapeake and followed present-day Maryland Route 8 between Matapeake and Stevensville before continuing east.[22] Major intersections[edit]
