The End Might Be Near For Route 66
The infamous Route 66 is one of America’s most iconic roads. But now it’s one of America’s most endangered Historic places, too, according to the National Trust For Historic Preservation.
The organization is requesting to have the part of the route that still exists named as the 20th National Historic Trail which would make it eligible for funding and upkeep from the government. Currently, the road is only funded through individual associations in the states it passes through. However, the legislation only has a year left before it expires so the organization is urging Americans to sign a petition to help.
