OCT 11 ...Haven't heard any further reports of a closure.
It has been reported that the road to Oatman was closed today due to flash flooding. The report did not specify any further details, so be prepared for a detour.

Construction goes on in Flagstaff at the JCT of I-40 and I-17. Not on the tour route but if you are using the freeway some exits may be closed at times.
also west to Williams...be advised that many onramps or offramps will be closed as work progresses. This sometimes has affected access to Parks from I-40.

The El Vado Motel is open now. reservations are probably advised. You can't park at your room...but you can at the nearby Monterrey Motel, which is owned by the same people. I've stayed there several times under the old management.

We had another good stay at the Route 66 Motel (the one with the old cars and windmill, etc in the courtyard) in Barstow last month.

Currently road construction on I-40 may close various exits at Parks, AZ and others in this area. There is also construction at the I-17/I-40 interchange which may affect you if you are using those highways instead of 66 in Flagstaff.
9 foot road

A message from Joe reminds me to bump this update back to the top...the 9 foot road from Miami to Narcissa was covered in rough gravel, but has recently been improved, so its not so bad, I still advise caution for bikes and sport cars.
