It snows along this part of Interstate 17, unlike the desert stretches in Maricopa County. In the winter, snowstorms are not uncommon, thus requiring vehicles to carry chains to place on car tires to enhance traction during snowstorms. Photo taken 06/22/07.

Northbound Interstate 17 approaching Exit 339, Lake Mary Road/Mormon Lake (this road is proposed but unconstructed Arizona 487; it is signed as National Forest Route 3), one-quarter mile, and Exit 340, Junction Interstate 40. Photo taken 06/22/07.
Northbound Interstate 17 at Exit 339, Lake Mary Road south to Mormon Lake. The freeway widens here to accommodate an exit only lane for Eastbound Interstate 40 (Exit 340). Photo taken 05/23/03.
Northbound Interstate 17 at Exit 340A, Junction Eastbound Interstate 40 to Albuquerque; the next exit is Exit 340B for Junction Westbound Interstate 40 to Los Angeles (even though Interstate 40 itself does not go to Los Angeles). This interchange was reconstructed in the late 1990s and early 2000s for a higher capacity interchange; originally, this interchange was a cloverleaf. Photo taken 06/22/07.
Passing under the flyover ramp from westbound Interstate 40 to southbound Interstate 17, a slower transition ramp is for Exit 340B from northbound to westbound. Prior to the interchange reconstruction, there was an END Interstate 17 shield assembly in place here. That shield is gone; as evidenced in the previous photobox, Arizona 89A continues north into Flagstaff per the overhead sign ... but there is still one more exit for northbound Interstate 17. Photo taken 06/22/07.
Northbound Interstate 17 comes to its northern end at Exit 341, McConnell Drive, after the Interstate 40 interchange. Arizona 89A picks up as a surface street leading into downtown Flagstaff, with connections to northbound U.S. 180 to the Grand Canyon, northbound U.S. 89 to Page and Glen Canyon, and historic U.S. 66. Photo taken 05/23/03. Second photo taken 06/22/07.
