Reassurance shield at the beginning of SH-119- a very diverse route that passes through many miles of mountains as a narrow, windy mountain road before descending into Boulder and becoming a major expressway through the area

Location: SH-119 and Main St, Black Hawk

A few miles into its route, SH-119 will enter Black Hawk, home of a bunch of casinos. It is a pretty fancy tourist destination

On the north end of Black Hawk, we’ll come to a junction with old SH-279, which heads to Central City. Central City is the original mining town in this area, while Black Hawk is the casino’d tourist area
