English: Media related to U.S. Route 50 in Utah, a section of U.S. Highway in Utah, United States, that is a major east–west corridor through the central part of the state that passes through Delta, Holden, Scipio, Salina, and Green River. A substantial portion of the highway on the eastern and western sides of the state runs concurrent with U.S. Route 6 and the eastern half runs concurrent with Interstate 70. It also has short concurrencies with Interstate 15 (in Millard County), U.S. Route 89 (in Sevier County), and U.S. Route 191 (in Emery and Grand counties).

Prior to 1937, U.S. Route 50 entered the state in Wendover, and then continued east along what is now roughly Interstate 80, Utah State Route 201, U.S. Route 89, and U.S. Route 6, until it reached its current alignment west of Green River. In 1937, the western half was realigned south to concur with the current alignment of U.S. Route 6 (and thereby running concurrent through the entire state). By 1976, with the completion of Interstate 70, the central part of the route was moved south to its current alignment. From 1910 to 1977, the (nearly) current corridor of U.S. Route 6 (and then U.S. Route 50) in the state, east from Spanish Fork/Springville, was designated by the Utah State Legislature as State Route 8. In 1977, the State Route 8 designation was deleted from the state highway system the entire U.S. Route 50 in Utah was designated as Utah State Route 50.
