Full Description


K-23 originally continued north from Dresden, through Oberlin, to the Nebraska Line North of Ceder Bluffs. The Stretch North of Dresden was re-designated as US 183 in 1930.

In the spring of 1938, US 183 was re-aligned south of Oberlin, shifting its south end from Dresden to Selden. In the fall of 1938, US 183 was re-aligned south of Oberlin. As a consequence, the segment between Selden and Oberlin was once again designated as K-23. To accomodate the new alignment, K-23 followed K-9 west to Selden. The segment between K-9 and Oberlin was re-designated as K-123.

In the fall of 1941, the Selden-Oberlin segment was re-designated as US 83
