Historically, was Nevada Avenue the old route US-85 all the way through COS?

Yes, there seems to be some evidence for that.

From Exit 128, it parallels I-25's eastern side through Fountain (Santa Fe Ave.), Security-Widefield, through an interchange with SH 16, and then through an interchange with Academy Blvd. North of Academy, US 85 takes two sharp turns and goes via an overpass to the western side of I-25. The western side of the overpass, at milepost 137.04, at the B Street/Venetucci Blvd intersection marks the end of the state-maintained part of US 85 where a section has been turned back to the city. There's even a "Begin City Maintenance" sign. Some maps show US 85 using Nevada Ave north through Colorado Springs, but don't look for signs.
