The auction of the Arizona Highway 63, which has been the state’s busiest highway for decades, is set for Oct. 31.
The auction is part of a campaign to help pay for maintenance, upkeep and rehabilitation of the highway, which stretches from Phoenix to Tucson.
Auctioneer and bidder Gary F. Schmitt said he’s hoping to raise at least $25 million for the highway.
The auction is being held at the Phoenix Convention Center.
It will run through Jan. 31 and feature an opening reception and auction.
The highway’s owner has been a member of the board since its inception in the early 1980s.
It was purchased by the Arizona Department of Transportation in 2006.
