One Of The Most Dangerous Roads In The World Is Right Here In Colorado

One of Colorado’s most stunning drives may also be one of the most dangerous…

According to both Dangerous Roads and USA Today, U.S. Route 550, which more commonly known as the Million Dollar Highway (because you’d have to pay the locals $1M to drive it during or after a snowstorm) is extremely dangerous, even claiming numerous lives and vehicles due to its steep, unprotected cliffs.

Constructed in the late 1800s, Million Dollar Road was originally intended to connect Ouray and Ironton, but gradually expanded to where it is now, stretching from central New Mexico up to western Colorado.
