Route description

SH 144 at the northern terminus of SH 39 in Goodrich

SH 144 begins in the west at I-76 and proceeds initially to the north; after 2.8 mi (4.5 km), the road crosses U.S. Route 34 (US 34). After another 3.8 mi (6.1 km), the route crosses the South Platte River and begins to curve in a broad arc to the east roughly following a meander of the South Platte. Continuing now in a generally eastward direction, SH 144 meets the north end of SH 39 at Goodrich. The road then continues its arc eastward and eventually ESE through Weldona, again across the South Platte River, and through Log Lane Village. Now traveling in approximately a southeasterly direction, SH 144 crosses to the south side of I-76 and continues for a further 1.4 mi (2.3 km) to its eastern terminus at SH 52 in Fort Morgan.
