1941 - 63 Alignment

Bellemont Camp Rd., Bellemont, AZ

East < GO > West

The south frontage road, Bellemont Camp Road, going west from I-40 Exit 185 is the 1941 to 1963 alignment and led to the earlier 1926 to 1941 alignment. This road ends a short distance from this intersection. There are no significant landmarks left on this section of the road. The alignments on the south side of I-40 were part of those built to avoid the climb in elevation that the road took going around Fortynine Hill.

x About Us We started traveling Historic U.S. Route 66 as a destination in 2009. It's like a 2,400 mile long drive back in time from Chicago to Santa Monica! more
xDid You Know: Many parts of the old 4 lane Route 66 were reverted to a 2 lane road after 66 was realigned to the interstate. In many places the abandoned lanes are still there.
