  1. My son would love that. He is a Route 66 Enthusiast. He is always saying that the road she be open and used again.

    • I’ll never understand why the Feds decommissioned the highway. The highway never lost its relevance despite the development of the interstate highway system. That road made dreams come true for so many Americans who wanted to escape the Midwest and the East Coast and come out and start a new life full of opportunity out here in the West. One of the things I praise most about the City of Rancho Cucamonga is that in planning the city, it was a priority to keep Route 66 alive in the Inland Empire by making Foothill the primary business corridor and economic center of the City. The completion of the Pacific Electric bridge really brought back the legacy of Route 66, to keep the 66 alive for generations to come.
