About This Destination
The Nebraska Lincoln Highway Historic Byway is Nebraska's portion of the Lincoln Highway - America's first transcontinental highway, first laid out in 1913. Entering Nebraska across the Missouri River at Blair, and crossing 450 miles through the state until it enters Wyoming west of Kimball, the Nebraska Lincoln Highway Historic Byway is Nebraska's longest byway.
In Nebraska, the Byway is made up of Highway 30, but there are many opportunities to drive on earlier authentic alignments of this historic road, including the original brick section at Elkhorn, "stairsteps" in Dawson and Lincoln Counties, and the main streets of many of the communities along the Byway.
Any time of year is great for a road trip on the Lincoln Highway.
