The north end of US 93 has always been at the Canadian border north of Eureka MT, but the 1927 Rand McNally shows that the crossing was at the town of "Gateway":

It's not possible to get photos from there anymore, because the townsite is submerged beneath Lake Koocanusa, which began to fill in 1975 upon the completion of Libby Dam. But US 93 had already been routed away from Gateway decades earlier; I've seen a 1934 map showing US 93 serving the current port of entry, called Roosville, which is about five miles east of where Gateway stood. The photo below is looking north on US 93 at the border:

Ahead is British Columbia provincial hwy. 93. Below we're looking south into the US, at the north beginning of US 93:

Eureka is about 9 miles ahead.


The south end of US 93 has changed many times over the decades - you can get more info and view photos of its historic endpoints on this page.


In 2010 US 93 traffic was directed onto a new highway in Wickenburg. A new traffic circle was constructed where this highway junctions US 60, and that rotary now marks the south terminus of US 93. Here's a view of the new signage posted on westbound US 60:

I think the diagram is a good idea, but personally, there's something about the execution that makes it a little difficult for me to decipher... maybe the white lines are a little too thick, or maybe the circle itself should be solid white, or else removed completely. Anyway, the sign bridge in the distance is shown close-up below:

The south beginning of US 93 is to the right. If you head that direction, you'll soon see the first northbound confirming assembly:

Heading the opposite direction, here's the signage for the beginning of US 93:

Schecter, Aug. 2010

Now, heading south on US 93, the roundabout is diagrammed thus:

Schecter, Aug. 2010

I think there's room for improvement there, too, but the next sign (at the rotary itself) is even worse:

Schecter, Aug. 2010

The dashed line there does more harm than good. And unfortunately, that's the closest thing there is to an "End US 93" sign now.


US 93 has an alternate route between Wells and Lages Station NV. From 1942 until sometime in the 1970s, there was another Alt US 93, this one in Idaho. It ran along what is now mainline US 93 (via Arco). Back then, mainline 93 was via what is now ID hwy. 75 (via Sun Valley).
