We got our kicks researching this
Route 66, also called
the Mother Road, is perhaps the most famous highway in America.
The idea of Route 66 started in 1925 with the joining of existing roads throughout America creating
a route from Chicago to Los Angeles. In 1938 the final sections of the 2,400
mile long Route 66 were paved.
Unfortunately for Route 66, it winded from town to town
in it's path and soon a new, more direct highway grew in it's place.
In 1984 the I-40 replaced the last sections of Route 66
near Williams, Arizona.
Since then Route 66 has been broken up and in most
places is not existent.
The longest remaining intact section of Route 66 can be
found in Arizona and runs from Seligman to Kingman, a total of 160
