 State Route 140 (SR 140) is a two-lane state highway in Humboldt County, Nevada. It serves a sparsely-populated section of the state, connecting northwestern Nevada to southern Oregon. Most of the highway was originally part of State Route 8A, and was later improved through an effort to provide an all-weather highway linking northern Nevada to the Pacific northwest.
