The Arizona State Route 90 is a state highway in the US state of Arizona , which initially runs in a north-south direction and then in an east-west direction.

The State Route begins on Interstate 10 near Benson and ends on Arizona State Route 80 between Tombstone and Bisbee . After about a third of the way it crosses Arizona State Route 82 and at Sierra Vista it meets Arizona State Route 92 . Huachuca City is passed between the junction with State Route 82 and Sierra Vista .

The highway was built in the 1940s and originally ran from Sierra Vista to Bisbee, with the last stretch having been on State Route 80 for many years. To the north, much of Arizona State Route 92 was added in the 1960s and four lanes were expanded between Huachuca and Sierra Vista in the 1990s . A good connection between Fort Huachuca Military Reservation near Huachuca and the Sierra Vista Municipal Airport is now guaranteed.
