History[edit | edit source]
The first plan for National Route 124 was laid out in 1935, and that plan originally had the highway running to Converse, Cutra. The original plan had the highway going a different route from the current one. It was originally to cut through what is now the southern part of Lohana, through the city of Rourk, and then up to Converse, roughly following the route of DI-98. In 1947, a new plan was proposed, and it had the highway located farther north, along its current route from its west end to DI-61. The 1947 plan had the highway traveling due east from DI-61 to Converse. The highway's routing here was modified in 1964 to its current routing. For years, the highway ended in Converse. It wasn't until 1985 that a plan was proposed to extend the highway to National Route 333 in Almina. It was extended in the late 1980s. Another extension was proposed in 1996. The 1996 proposal would extend the highway to its current east end at DI-92 in Salviana. The current route of National Route 124 was completed in 1998.
