Route description

The southern terminus of SR 75 is located at a junction with US 70 in Duncan. It initially heads northeast from this intersection but curves back towards the northwest. As it continues towards the northwest, the highway passes through the communities of Sheldon, Apache Grove and York. The northern terminus of SR 75 is located at a junction with US 191 and SR 78 in Three Way near the Greenlee County Airport.[1][2]

History

SR 75 was designated as a state highway between Duncan and Clifton in 1932.[3] By 1935, the route was still just a gravel road.[4] By 1938, the southern half had been paved, but the northern half remained a gravel road.[5] The highway was shortened to its present northern terminus when US 666 (present day US 191) was relocated to an alignment further south. The section north of the new junction with US 666 was transferred to US 666.

Junction list

The entire route is in Greenlee County.
