FLAGSTAFF TO WILLIAMS on Oct 03, 2018 at 8:11:58 pm [Print]
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.

ALBUQUERQUE on Oct 03, 2018 at 8:09:53 pm [Print]
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.

the Deluxe Inn in Seligman AZ is another great place to stay.

FLAGSTAFF TO WILLIAMS on Sep 27, 2018 at 1:47:32 pm [Print]
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 on Sep 20, 2018 at 11:20:12 pm [Print]
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.

The Silver Saddle Motel is a great older motel with cool decor and a bargain.

The detour west of Groom is currently open.
