Route 66

Check out the National Historic Route 66 Federation
 Route 66 from Chicago, Illinois to Santa Monica, California was built under several federal aid highway acts becoming one of the largest public works projects in history. Route 66 (a modern road system) opened up portions of America not previously accessible by car. It helped to create a redistribution of America's population during the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl years as people moved west to make real their dreams. This migration to the west was captured by John Steinbeck in his classic story, "The Grapes of Wrath". Later Route 66 would find glamour through the long-running 1960's television series, "Route 66" and the popular song, "Get Your Kicks on Route 66".
 The construction of Interstate 44 led to the eventual decommissioning of Route 66. Portions of this historic highway are still preserved and can be distinguished by the brown Historic Route 66 signs.
