Lincoln Highway
Maps and Information by State

The route of the Lincoln Highway is usually described from east to west:

The place names for each state are listed from east to west as you read down the columns, then across from left to right.

The approximate route of the Lincoln Highway from New York to San Francisco is:

  • U.S. 1 south from New York to Philadelphia
  • U.S. 30 west to Granger, Wyoming
  • I-80 west to Wendover, Nevada
  • U.S. 50 west to just east of Reno
  • I-80 west to Sacramento
  • I-5 south to Tracy
  • I-580 west to Oakland
  • I-80 west to San Francisco

This route is very approximate. The roads have been constantly realigned since the Lincoln Highway was created in 1913. In fact, the Lincoln Highway itself underwent frequent rerouting as straighter, more direct routes were established.
