It’s time to gain knowledge again and this time I’ll bring you some facts about Route 66, also known as the Will Rogers Highway, the Main Street of America or the Mother Road. The US 66 Highway was established November 11th, 1926, and became one of the most famous highways in the United States. Route 66 originally ran from Chicago, Illinois, through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona before ending at Santa Monica, California, and at the time, the route was covering a total of 2,448 miles (3,940 km). This legendary old road passes through the heart of the United States on a diagonal trip providing some of the country’s most classic roadside scenes such as neon signs, rusty middle-of-nowhere truck stops, or kitschy Americana.
During its lifetime, Route 66 was of big importance for those migrating west, especially during the Dust Bowl of the 1930s, also known as the Dirty Thirties, which is a period of severe dust storms that damaged the ecology and agriculture of the American and Canadian prairies for years.
Route 66 also has been of great support to the economies of the communities along the route. Everyone who managed a business along the route did benefit the growing popularity of the highway. Many of these businesses became dependant on the US 66 and therefore their owners fought to keep the highway alive as the new Interstate Highway System became a threat. However, in the late 1950s, and gradually over the next 25 years, the old Route 66 was bypassed section by section as the high-speed Interstate highways were completed. Eventually, nothing could be done to prevent the US 66 of being officially removed from the United States Highway System and it was in 1985 that Route 66 became part of the country’s history. That’s why the old US 66 is now designated Historic Route 66. Several states have adopted significant bypassed sections of the former US 66 into the state road network as State Route 66.
The romance of Route 66 will never completely disappear and it will continue to be on many traveller’s bucket list. Although it is no longer possible to drive Route 66 uninterrupted all the way from Chicago to Los Angeles, much of the original route is still available to drive with some good planning. Some sections of Route 66 still retain their historic 9-foot-wide (2.7 m) “sidewalk highway” form and have never even been resurfaced.
