Historic US 80 in Arizona

Recommended Posts

On a recent trip out to Phoenix I found that Arizona is posting signs along old US 80, at least where it coincides with current State highways. I found two shields, one in each direction, on State 85 near Buckeye. Apparently, it is also signed on State 77 (former US 80 from Florence Junction to near Tucson). Anyone else seen any new shields?

Historic 80 signs are also on what is now SR 80 from Benson down through Tombstone/Bisbee/Douglas and over to the NM border.  Also in the Yuma area, if memory serves.  Minor correction to the above post:  The State Route from Florence Junction to Oracle Junction is 79, not 77.  77 picks up old 80/89 at Oracle Junction and continues into Tucson.  The historic 80 signage continues to the Tucson city limits.

My mistake. I forget about that chunk.
