Long Description:
The Historical Marker was erected by the State of New Mexico. The following is the message on the marker.

N. M. State Road 78 appeared on maps before 1927, but remained a gravel highway in several sections in Arizona and New Mexico through the 1960's. By 1971, all but one stretch near the border had been paved. Area rancher Curley Traynor was instermental in having a paved road connect Arizona and New Mexico, and in 1974 it was dedicated as the A. M. Curley Traynor Memorial Highway.

The marker is located just East of the Arizona/New Mexico border on the South side of the Highway.
