Navajo Nation Receives Grant to Improve Road Southeast of Shiprock

Apr 19, 2017

The Navajo Nation received a federal grant to improve safety features on one of the most-traveled roads in the Navajo Nation.



According to a release, the Navajo Department of Transportation plans to repair potholes, create additional signage, and build cut-out sections on road N36 between Shiprock and Farmington.


Tribal officials hope to supplement the $72,000 grant from the Federal Highway Administration's Tribal Transportation Program Safety Fund with other funding sources to complete the project. Traffic collisions are reported as the number-one cause of unintentional injuries and deaths on the reservation.
