ADOT Urged To Give Highway 64 Some TLC

December 3, 2019

 The Greater Arizona Mayor’s Association, an organization made up of cities and towns in northern Arizona, is asking the Arizona Department of Transportation to make some improvements to State Route 64 between Tusayan and Williams.

They did so at the urging of Vice Mayor Brady Harris who is hoping the improvements can be part of ADOT’s 5 year plan.

The improvements would include more passing lanes, elk and deer fencing, shoulders for things such as disabled vehicles, and an increased highway patrol presence.

From 2014 to 2018, according to data provided by Vice Mayor Harris, there were 558 collision incidents  on State Route 64 between Tusayan and Williams. Eight of them related to drugs or alcohol.
