Designating Route 66 as a National Historic Trail will have a significant economic impact in the eight states along the iconic route and appropriately recognize the historic roadway ahead of its upcoming centennial celebration in 2026. This designation would help spur critical preservation efforts in the hundreds of communities that call it home, and most importantly, it will help preserve Route 66 as a vital, iconic, and evolving piece of Americana for generations to come.
Contact your House Representative and ask them to support the bill designating the Route 66 National Historic Trail (H.R. 4338) and help ensure House passage this year.
