Route description

Wyoming Highway 318 begins at Wyoming Highway 270 in the small Town of Hartville. WYO 318 travels east as Hartville's Main Street for a mile till it reaches the old mining town of Sunrise at 1.09 miles. Upon reaching the former town, WYO 318 ends at a road closed sign as the mine property is gated. The Sunrise Mine operated until 1980 and produced 42,457,187 tons of iron ore


The section of present-day Wyoming Highway 270 from US 26 at Guernsey north to Hartville at present-day Wyoming Highway 318 was formerly designated as Wyoming Highway 318 prior to the 1970s. Highway 318 used to begin as US 26 at Guernsey and end at Sunrise with a 90 degree turn at Hartville. The stretch between Guernsey and Hartville was recommissioned as Wyoming Highway 270 when that road was completed between Manville and Hartville to maintain continuity.
