Construction began in June of 2010. The Route 66 FUTS Trail remains open during construction.
This project involves the preservation of a 700-foot long stretch of historic Route 66 on the Route 66 FUTS Trail, east of Fanning Drive and west of the Route 66 underpass. In addition to preserving the road and adding interpretive elements, the project will beautify the area with landscaping and add a rest stop to the FUTS trail that uses the old circa 1937 road bed as a part of the trail system. The project is funded by Bed, Board, and Beverage Tax revenues.
