The business loop is quite well signed in rural areas but not so much in urban areas, which is slightly ironic. Fortunately it is decommissioned so all these green signs should eventually disappear.

Location: Platte Ave and CR 20, Fort Morgan

A few miles later and we’ll enter Fort Morgan

A few blocks later and we’ll get to junction SH-52

Location: Platte Ave and Main St, Fort Morgan

Turn right for SH-52 North, which heads to I-76 and Raymer. If Colorado acknowledged concurrencies, SH-52 would run with US-34 west for about 17 miles via I-76 before splitting off again, but no such luck and this becomes the southern terminus of the eastern segment
