U.S. Route 60 (US 60) is an east–west US highway in central Arizona and New Mexico in American Truck Simulator. The route is separated into three sections. The first section runs from US 93 in Wickenburg to Loop 303 northwest of Phoenix. The second section runs from Interstate 10 and SR 51 in Phoenix to Interstate 25 in Socorro. The third section runs from US 54 and US 285 in Vaughn to US 70 in Clovis. In real life, US 60 runs 2655 miles (4273 km) from I-10 near Brenda, AZ, to Virginia Beach, VA.

Course[]

US 60 in ATS begins at its junction with US 93 in Wickenburg, AZ, and runs a short distance through the Sonoran Desert to AZ 303, where this westernmost segment ends. The highway resumes at Interstate 10 in Phoenix, where it climbs between the red buttes of the Superstition Mountains to Globe. There it meets US 70 at its western terminus and heads north, where it soon crosses the Salt River Canyon, a section of road with steep grades and tight switchbacks. In the south of the Colorado Plateau, the highway reaches Show Low, where it resumes its eastward trend; it is here that AZ 77 intersects with the highway, heading north to Holbrook. The highway soon intersects with US 191, which begins a short concurrency that ends in Springerville, the middle of this concurrency featuring a weigh station.

Out of Springerville the highway enters New Mexico, where it soon passes through the town of Quemado, which offers travel services. Passing through the forest the highway crosses the Great Continental Divide, and descends into a broad, open valley, where it passes through the Very Large Array, a massive grouping of 28 radio telescopes used to make observations of the universe. Passing Box Canyon, the highway descends to Socorro and Interstate 25, where there currently exists a gap between the interstate and Vaughn. After intersecting with US 54 and 285, the highway proceeds through the plains past Yeso (which features a rest area), and intersects with US 84 at Fort Sumner. After another rest area, the highway reaches Clovis, where it intersects with US 70 and currently ends, awaiting extension into Texas.

History[]

In the initial version of the Arizona map expansion DLC, US 60 began at Interstate 10 in Phoenix and ended at SR 77 in Show Low.

In update 1.5, which changed the map scale from 1:35 to 1:20, new sections were added to the existing route to accommodate the new map scale.

In update 1.29, the section of US 60 between US 93 and Loop 303 was added.

In the initial version of the New Mexico map expansion DLC, the sections of US 60 between SR 77 in Show Low and Interstate 25 in Socorro, and between US 54 and US 285 in Vaughn and US 70 in Clovis, were added.

In update 1.32, the eastern part of Springerville and the junction there with US 191 were added. The junction with US 93 was changed from an at-grade three-way junction to a roundabout.

In update 1.38, the concurrency with US 180 and US 191 and an at-grade three-way junction at the west end of the concurrency was added.

Trivia[]

  • The usa.dds file (the map editor map) shows a gray line in the currently inaccessible portion of US 60 between Socorro and Vaughn, indicating that the second and third segments could soon be connected.
