Accessing Seligman from I-40 is easy while bridge improvements advance


By Steve Elliott / ADOT Communications

Need a Route 66 fix? That's easily done from Interstate 40 if Seligman is on your list. And it's going to be even nicer this coming spring, when we're scheduled to complete upgrades to bridges along one of two paths between I-40 and this community rich in motoring history.

While this route is closed for the work, we have signs directing motorists to I-40 exit 123, which provides convenient access to Seligman's east side.

We've worked closely with the community to develop a project that affects only one of the summer seasons that are so important to Seligman's businesses, to maintain convenient access from I-40 throughout and to share word that the town is easily accessible while these improvements are underway.

You can learn more about this project at And here's a map showing how easy it is to get from I-40 to the Route 66-themed history, fun, dining and shopping in Seligman.
