State Route 118 (SR-118) is a state highway in the U.S. state of Utah linking I-70 and Joseph to Richfield. The route is the main street for Joseph, Monroe and Richfield and spans convert|24.14|mi|km|2. The highway was established 1931, initially connecting Joseph to Monroe and Central. Eventually, maintenance of the road was extended north to near Salina.

Route description

The highway begins at a diamond interchange on I-70 at exit 25 on the west side of Joseph and heads east as a two-lane undivided highway. The road enters Joseph as Main Street and turns northeast after exiting the town. The route intersects a few local roads before briefly curving southeast. The road now heads east-northeast before turning southeast and eventually east. More streets intersect the route before it enters Monroe as 100 South. In central Monroe, the highway turns north onto Main Street. Exiting Monroe and entering rural surroundings, it veers slightly eastward. East of Elsinore, the route turns northeast onto another highway. North of Central, the route passes Richfield Municipal Airport. North of the airport, the road enters Richfield as Main Street, widens to four lanes, and straightens to the north before a short overlap with SR-120 commences. As the concurrency ends, SR-120 continues north on Main Street while SR-118 turns east onto 300 North, a two-lane highway. The highway exits Richfield while SR-119 splits off toward Glenwood and SR-118 turns northeast. The route continues in this direction in a rural environment before terminating at SR-24 north of Sigurd and southwest of Salina.cite web | title=Google Maps | publisher=Google | url=http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&q=UT-118&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=32.885543,83.320312&ie=UTF8&ll=38.691941,-112.115479&spn=0.252963,0.65094&z=11 ]

History

State Route 118 was formed in 1931 as a connector between Joseph and SR-11 to Central via Monroe. In 1957, the northern terminus was set to SR-258. In 1969, a proposed connection between Joseph and unfinished–I-70 was added to the system. In 1992, the northern terminus of the road was extended northward to SR-24, where it stands at present.Utah Department of Transportation, [http://www.udot.utah.gov/main/f?p=100:pg:5285268476414239680:::1:T,V:1348, Highway Resolutions] : PDFlink|1= [http://www.dot.utah.gov/main/uconowner.gf?n=200609181318121 Route 118] |2=5.66 MB, updated October 2007, accessed August 2008]
