Route description

After its western terminus, SR-265 heads due east for a short time until turning briefly southeast and then straightening out again, heading due east. Shortly after passing an intersection with US-89, the route turns southeast until its eastern terminus, US-189.

History

The State Road Commission designated the initial segment of SR-265, from proposed I-15 east to SR-1 (US-89/US-91), in 1959.[2] That same year, a short State Route 267 was created on Bulldog Boulevard in Provo between SR-1 (500 West) and University Avenue (now, but not then, US-189) near Brigham Young University.[3] Two extensions to SR-265 were made in 1964 - one southeast to SR-7 (US-189) near the university, and another west to SR-114. At the same time, SR-267, which was several blocks south of the extended SR-265, was given back to the city.[4]
