[AZ 84]

Current route: JCT I-8 to JCT AZ 287/387 in Casa Grande
Historic route: Tucson to Gila Bend

Only a small segment of this route remains. It was at one time a main shortcut for traffic heading west from Tucson to San Diego, since it was a shorter route than US 80. The westbound I-10 frontage road from Tucson to Eloy is part of the old highway. Another piece still exists as Business Loop I-8 in Gila Bend. I-10 and I-8 replaced most of this route.

In 1998, the route between Eloy and Casa Grande was decommissioned. This is part of a very old interchange -- note the substandard exit.
