Nebraska Highway 2, NE-71/SD-71/SD State Line to US-20

 

Location: N-2 and SD-71, Sioux Cty

Welcome to Nebraska! South Dakota 71 turns into Nebraska 71, and Nebraska 2 materializes out of thin air

Location: N-2 and SD-71, Sioux Cty

Reassurance shield for both those routes. 2 and 71 will concur to just west of Hemingford, and the highway uses 71′s mileposts from here to there

Location: N-2  and Fall Creek Rd, Sioux Cty

Reassurance shield just after the previous one- you can see this one in the distance of the last photo

Location: N-2 and Agate Dam Rd, Sioux Cty

Reassurance shield after the turnoff to Agate Reservoir. This is some really weird terrain around here- it’s kind of like the Palouse in northern Idaho/eastern Washington, but not quite the same

Location: N-2 and Agate Dam Rd, Dawes Cty

Another reassurance shield a mile later as we cross into Dawes County

Location: N-2 and Sugar Loaf Rd, Dawes Cty

Reassurance shield as we come out of the Oglala National Grassland

Location: N-2 and Beach St, Dawes Cty

A few miles later, we’ll approach US-20, which is right around the corner

Location: N-2 and Beach St, Crawford

We’re right on the northeast corner of Crawford, and Highways 2 and 71 will follow the eastern edge of town

Location: N-2 and Beach St, Crawford

Keep left at this junction to head the one block to US-20

Location: N-2 and US-20, Crawford
