    The “Colorado Loop” of the Lincoln Highway was a sanctioned branch of the transcontinental 1913 Lincoln Highway. It branched off the main route at Big Springs, Nebraska, and ran to Denver, where it turned north to Cheyenne, Wyoming. The town of Greeley promoted its own unsanctioned “branch” of the Colorado Loop. The national association withdrew its recognition of the Loop in 1915.
