Driving Directions and Maps for LIGO Hanford Observatory
Google Maps can find LIGO if you enter LIGO Hanford Observatory, 127124 N Route 10, Richland WA as the target address. Most other direction services, including those used by cell phones, don't recognize LIGO's street address because they can't locate Route 10/Horn Road. Beware that you won't see Google's road names on any signs near LIGO. Use the map above and directions below to confirm the turns that you'll need to make to reach LIGO.
This just in (Jan 2014): Recent winds have blown down the signs on SR240 near the intersection at which you make the right turn (westbound) to drive LIGO; WSDOT has not yet replaced the signs. Study the map above carefully and note the location of the right turn (westbound) onto Horn Road/Route 10 (or the left turn if you'll be eastbound, coming from the Mattawa area).
The map above lists "Horn Road" as another name of the road named "Route 10" in LIGO's street address. You might see "Horn Rapids Road" on maps that you generate if you use a computer or cell phone to find LIGO. Beware that "Horn Road" and "Horn Rapids Road" are not the same road!Choose the direction from which you will come to LIGO. Click the PDF link for printer-friendly directions of your route.
