U.S. Route 64 (US 64) is a west-east highway in New Mexico, United States that starts from the Arizona state line in Bechlabito to the Oklahoma state line northeast of Clayton.

Route description[edit]

U.S. Route 64, entering from Arizona, starts at the town of Bechlabito, traveling to Shiprock. There US 64 makes a concurrency with US 491 for 0.5 miles (0.80 km). US 64 continues east into the cities of Farmington and Bloomfield, then through the towns of Blanco and Navajo City. After entering the Rocky Mountains, US 64 has a concurrency with US 84 from Chromo Mountain to Tierra Amarilla. The highway then passes through Tres Piedras before crossing via the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge and heading into Taos. US 64 continues through the towns of Eagle Nest and Cimarron before eventually reaching I-25. The two highways bring up a short concurrency before US 64 turns northwest off of I-25 in Raton, then continuing to travel east, this time bringing up a concurrency with US 87 through the towns of Capulin, Des Moines, Grenville, and Mount Dora. The two highways split in Clayton, and US 64 forms another new concurrency with US 56 and US 412. The three highways barely touch the Texas Panhandle before continuing into Oklahoma.

History[edit]

Future[edit]

Several plans involve safety improvements in US 64 at its intersection with NM 68.[3]
