Site gives an extensive list of links to websites about historic U. S. Highway 66. U. S. Highway 66 is the quintessential historic federally numbered highway. The numerous "roadies" with a passion for "Route 66" affectionately refer to it as the "Mother Road". It was one of the original Federal Highways commissioned in 1926 along with some of its other famous newly numbered cousins such as U. S. 30 - "The Lincoln Highway", U. S. 40 - "The National Highway", and U. S. 80 - "The Broadway of America". Route 66 was not a true coast to coast transcontinental highway. Its eastern end was in downtown Chicago, Illinois. Its western terminus was in Santa Monica, California. From Illinois, it ran southwest and then mostly directly west through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. The construction of the modern Interstate Highways starting in 1956 which paralleled the "Mother Road" (as I-40 and I-44) initiated the eventual demise of the old highway -- in 1985 it was completely decommissioned. Today, most of the states it traversed have signed it as "State Highway 66" or "Historic U. S. Highway 66".. U. S. 66 has been given several nicknames over the years: "The Main Street of America" and "The Will Rogers Highway".
