US Highway 20, one of the two major national east-west routes that goes through Iowa, ends less than a mile from the Pacific Ocean.

Technically, US 20 is broken into two segments, west and east of Yellowstone National Park. The eastern segment is the original one.

Along the route

O'Neill, Nebraska: End of US 275

South Sioux City, Nebraska: Crossing the Missouri River with I-129 and US 75

Waterloo, Iowa: North end of IA 21

Portage, Indiana: South end of IN 249, just south of I-94

In northwestern Indiana, many highways that go through Iowa come within a few miles of each other - US 6, US 20, US 30, and I-80.

East Greenbush, New York (southeast of Albany): West/South end of US 4

EAST End: MA 2 W/Beacon St. and MA 2 E/Commonwealth Ave., Boston MA, Suffolk County MA
