Iowa Route 64 is an east-west highway in eastern Iowa, mainly in the state's eastern lobe formed by the meandering Mississippi River. The western end is at US Route 151 in Anamosa; most westbound traffic reaching Iowa Route 64's western end continues onto US Route 151 westerly toward Cedar Rapids. The eastern end is the bridge crossing of the Mississippi River from Sabula, Iowa, to Savanna, Illinois; that bridge crossing is shared with US Route 52. Iowa Route 64 boards the bridge out of Sabula, and reaches the Illinois side of the bridge as Illinois Route 64. Iowa Route 64 parallels US Route 30 to the north, and it passes through towns like Wyoming, Monmouth, and Maquoketa.
My photo for Iowa Route 64 comes from the junction of Iowa Route 64 with Iowa Route 62 on the east side of Maquoketa, Iowa. The sign assembly in the image faces east for westbound travelers on Iowa Route 64. The signage points out the southern end of Iowa Route 62, which is a turn to the north. This photo was taken on July 1, 2017, at the tail end of my trip to eastern Iowa that weekend. Back to the Iowa main page. Back to the home page.
