The primary purpose of this website is to provide photos and descriptions of current and historic US highway endpoints, and to provide maps that show each US highway in the context of its "route family".
Today there are 195 US routes still in existence, which means there are 390 current endpoints.
Historically there were an additional 87 US routes that have since been decommissioned.
When including historic routes and historic termini, the number of endpoints goes up above 1300.
They are all covered on this site: over 600 webpages, containing approx. 5000 images, including 81 route maps. Over 200 people have contributed to this effort.
You can search for highway endpoints geographically (by state) using this index. Or, if you know the route number, use the "Highways" menu to navigate to the page for that route. A few tips:
Three-digit "branch" routes are listed under their two-digit "main" route. For example, US 285 is listed under US 85.
However, there are a few three-digit routes that are not branches of the main route implied by their number. For example, US 101 is not a branch route of US 1. These routes are listed under "Anomalies".
Depending on the size of your screen, you might not be able to go directly to all routes through the "Highways" menu (US 99, for example, might be off the bottom of your screen). If you find this to be the case, simply click on the main heading ("US 90 - US 99" in this example). That will take you to an index page where you can then click on any highway in that grouping.
This map shows a handful of future endpoints that still need to be photographed, and endpoints which at last report were not signed.
There is also some bonus content, which can be accessed from the "Other" menu.
US highways are not the same as interstate highways. If you're looking for endpoints of interstates, check out AARoads.com.
