(October 25, 1926-November 25, 1980)

Note: Instead of adding updated photos to this page, see IA 187 for the new signs and the roundabout.

WEST End: IA 150, Fayette County

Facing north, but heading west, on 154

Until 1981, this was the end of IA 154, and then 187 superseded its entire route. The 1981 state map, with a notation that routes are correct as of October 1980, shows 154 still on its route. Replace the "187"s with "154"s to get an idea of what was here.

Because 154 went six miles north-south but eight miles east-west, it was an east-west route. Further confirmation of this is that the mile markers on the part of 187 north of 3 are on the left/west side, meaning a count-up from the west end.

One mile south of here, 154/187 turns east while W33 goes straight south.

EAST End: Stop sign, IA 3 and W51 (IA 187 in 1980), Fayette County

Facing south on 187, but heading east on 154

This is the most likely candidate for the "End 154" pole.

This LGS has the three communities (in order) that make up the Starmont school district - a conglomeration of town names Strawberry Point, Arlington, and Lamont. The school in Arlington is abandoned.

This standard, run-of-the-mill intersection was replaced with (ick) a roundabout in 2009.

Prior to 1980, the shield at right would be a 154 (with the same up arrow) - that is, if it was signed.

Last seen: 1981

Notice that on this map, 154 and 187 both end at the junction with 3.
