End of US highway 470
|Approx. time period||East terminus||West terminus|
|1926-1931||Willard, NM||Albuquerque, NM|
US 470 was among the original routes of 1926 - a short little thing, running from US 70 at Willard NM to Albuquerque (click those links to view photos). US 70, you might well ask? Yes, originally US 70 followed what is now US 60 across New Mexico, and US 470 was the route that connected it to Albuquerque (you might want to click on the link to the map, above). When US 70 was rerouted in the early 1930s, US 470 was no longer an appropriate number, so it was changed to US 366 [II].
