Inscription.  This road passes through some of the most spectacular scenery in the American Southwest. It is a key section of the east - west highway which brings visitors to this region from throughout the United States. Since this route became a reality through the perseverance of Governor Jack M. Campbell (1963-1966), the members of the New Mexico State Highway Commission voted unanimously on September 23, 1965, to name this portion of U.S. 64 in his honor.
