SH 11 has known several routes in history. The original SH 11 of the early 1920s ran from Wolcott to Kremmling in the northwest part of the state. This route was scrapped in 1950, the southern portion became SH 131 and the remainder to Kremmling became a county road. At that time, not a single part of SH 11 was asphalted.
Then, in the 1960s, SH 11 was assigned to the US 85/87 freeway through Colorado Springs (later I-25). SH 11 ran on the highway between both connections to Nevada Avenue for approximately 12 kilometers. This route existed between 1960 and 1968.
In 1971, SH 11 was assigned for the third time, on its current route at Julesburg. The road has remained unchanged since then.
Every day 500 vehicles use the SH 11.

SH 112 is one of the original state highways from the 1920s and has not been substantially changed since then. In 1949 the section between Del Norte and US 285 was asphalted, which was extended to Center in 1950 and to Hooper in 1954.

State Route 114 in Colorado
State Route 114, commonly known as State Highway 114 or SH 114 is a state route in the U.S. state of Colorado. The road forms an east-west route in the Rocky Mountains, from near Gunnison to Saguache. SH 114 is 99 kilometers long.
SH 114 begins eight miles east of Gunnison on US 50 and heads south initially through a narrow valley of a small river. The road leads through a desolate area, until the end point Saguache there are no other places on the route and no important roads are crossed. The landscape is initially barren with little bush, further east the mountains are a bit higher and there is some forest. The road crosses an unimportant mountain pass of 3,100 meters ( North Pass ). SH 114 ends in Saguache on US 285.
SH 114 is one of the original state highways in the state of Colorado from the 1920s. The road has always gone from Gunnison to Saguache, but originally went a little further south through the Cochetopa Pass. Most of the road was paved between 1950 and 1958, except over Cochetopa Pass. In 1963, SH 114 was moved over the route via the North Pass and was asphalted in 1964.
SH 114 is very lightly traveled, with 400 to 700 vehicles closer to US 50 and Saguache, but only 100 vehicles per day over the North Pass.
