Iowa Route 144 is a fairly short north-south highway in rural areas northwest of Des Moines. The southern end of Iowa Route 144 is at Iowa Route 141 in Perry, Iowa, about twenty miles northwest of the Des Moines area. Iowa Route 144 heads north from there through Rippey, Grand Junction, and Paton, to end at Iowa Route 175. This northern terminus is between Gowrie and Harcourt, just west of US Route 169.
My photo of Iowa Route 144 comes from the only intermediate junction between its two endpoints: an intersection with US Route 30 at Grand Junction, Iowa. The signage shown is the northbound trailblazer reassuring travelers leaving the junction between US Route 30 and Iowa Route 144. This photo was taken toward the tail end of the northern Iowa trip of September 2019. Back to the Iowa main page. Back to the home page.
