Interstate 40 (I-40) is an east–west Interstate Highway in southern California and northern Arizona and New Mexico in American Truck Simulator. It begins at Interstate 15 in Barstow and currently ends in Tucumcari, near the border to Texas.

In real life, Interstate 40 runs from Barstow to Wilmington, North Carolina. It is the third-longest Interstate Highway in the United States, after Interstate 90 and Interstate 80.

Course[]

Interstate 40 begins in Barstow, at a junction with Interstate 15. It proceeds through the sparse Mojave Desert, where the highway features eastbound and westbound Weigh Stations and some notable elevation changes. At Needles there are eastbound and westbound Rest Stops, and it is there that US 95 meets the highway.

After crossing the Colorado River, the highway enters Arizona, and immediately climbs up to Kingman, where access to AZ 66 is provided and a short concurrency with US 93 begins. After the 93 breaks from the highway, I-40 climbs up a notable grade onto the Colorado Plateau, where it meets back with AZ 66 at Seligman. At Ash Fork there is a truck stop on the north side of the highway, while on the south side AZ 89 provides access to Camp Verde. From there the highway enters the pine forests of the Coconino Plateau, where it reaches its highest point at the Arizona Divide (7335 ft). Shortly afterwards, the highway reaches Interstate 17 and the city of Flagstaff; above the city are the San Francisco Peaks, prominent landmarks that include Humphreys Peak, the highest point of Arizona. The highway then descends into the red desert of the Colorado Plateau, where it crosses Diablo Canyon, another notable landmark. Past Holbrook, the highway passes Petrified Forest National Park, and intersects with US 191 at Sanders, where there is a westbound Weigh Station.

At the border with New Mexico, the land around the highway rises into high red cliffs. After crossing the state line there is an eastbound weigh station, and shortly thereafter the city of Gallup is reached. East of Gallup, one can see Pyramid Rock, a colorful mountain that stands near where the highway crosses the Great Continental Divide. On the descent down the Colorado Plateau into the Rio Grande Rift, travel services are offered at North Acomita Village, around the Sky City Casino. After crossing the Rio Grande, the highway reaches Albuquerque, the largest city in New Mexico, where it intersects with Interstate 25. In the eastern limits of town, access to old Route 66 is provided; the segment of the historic road featured here is known as the Musical Highway, and terminates with a ramp onto the eastbound lanes of I-40. East of Albuquerque, I-40 climbs over an unnamed pass between the Sandia Mountains to the north and the Manzanos to the south. Proceeding eastward, east and westbound Rest Stops are provided, and US 84 offers access to Interstate 25. Shortly thereafter, the town of Santa Rosa is reached, and with it are numerous travel services. East of Santa Rosa, the highway currently ends at Tucumcari, and will eventually continue into Texas.

History[]

  • In the initial version of the Arizona map expansion DLC, the section of Interstate 40 from the unnamed road east of Barstow to a diamond interchange south of Bushnell Farms in Holbrook was added.
  • In update 1.5, which changed the map scale from 1:35 to 1:20, new sections, including the exit to Petrified Forest National Park, were added to the existing route to accommodate the new map scale. The trumpet interchange with Interstate 15 and the diamond interchange with US 95 were rebuilt, while the diamond interchange with SR 66 and SR 89 was separated into two separate diamond interchanges for each route. The at-grade three-way junction with the unnamed road to Interstate 10 and the diamond interchange south of Bushnell Farms in Holbrook were removed, which truncated the eastern terminus to US 191 in Holbrook.
