Encyclopedia > U.S. Highway 366

United States Highway 366 was a short-lived east-west United States highway, with two distinct identities. Its second designation, a New Mexico intrastate route, incorporated the entire route of United States Highway 470. But the US 366 designation was permanently decommissioned by 1938.

U.S. Highway 366 (I)

The original 1926 route extended through Texas and New Mexico. In 1931, US 366 (I) was decommissioned in favor of an expanded U.S. Highway 60 through Texas, and a rerouted U.S. Highway 70 through New Mexico. The southern segment, from Alamogordo, New Mexico to El Paso, Texas would later become part of U.S. Highway 54.


Termini

The highway's eastern terminus was in Amarillo, Texas at an intersection with its parent, U.S. Highway 66. Its western terminus was in El Paso, Texas at the Mexican border.


States traversed

The highway passed through the following states:

U.S. Highway 366 (II)

When the original US 366 was decommissioned in 1931, the designation was assigned to the route previously designated United States Highway 470. This routing lasted until 1937, when outgoing New Mexico Governor Arthur T. Hannett changed the route of US 66 to bypass the state capitol, Santa Fe [1] (http://www.theroadwanderer.net/66NMex/santafe.htm). The new alignment of US 66 overlapped US 366 enough that the remaining portion, from Moriarty to Willard, became a state route.


Termini

The highway's eastern terminus was in Moriarty, New Mexico at an intersection with U.S. Highway 60 (named U.S. Highway 70 until 1931). Its western terminus was in Albuquerque, New Mexico at an intersection with U.S. Highway 66 and U.S. Highway 85.
