US Route 275 runs from northeastern Nebraska to Omaha, southwest Iowa, and the very northwest corner of Missouri. The most northwestern segment of US Route 275 is concurrent with US Route 20, with the very northwestern extent stopping at US Route 281. Heading southeast, US Route 275 soon splits from US Route 20 to carve its own path through Norfolk to Fremont in northeastern Nebraska, where US Route 275 becomes a freeway until the greater Omaha area. US Route 275 joins Nebraska Highway 92 on a surface road east through Omaha before joining Interstate 29 south in parts of western Iowa. Then, US Route 275 uses US Route 34 to cut east to its own southward alignment, ending up in Rock Port, Missouri, where the highway ends at US Route 136.
My photo for US Route 275 wasn't taken during a trip devoted to my national highway collection; it was taken as part of a trip routesnapping state highways around western Iowa in October 2021. The photo shows a trailblazer directed at travelers heading south over the Iowa-Missouri border, just south of Hamburg, Iowa. This sign was erected by Missouri's DOT, just barely on their side of the state border. Interstate 29 lies just to the west of this photo's location, in Missouri's northwest corner. The aperture faces south toward the sun, but the overcast skies allowed this photo to turn out nicely. Overcast skies are the great equalizer when it comes to which aperture angle proves favorable for the lighting in your photography. Back to the nationwide main page. Back to the home page.
