Background
Route 66 spanned more than 2,400 miles (3,862 kilometers) and ran through eight states. The “Mother Road” was created in 1926 after the Bureau of Public Roads launched the nation’s first federal highway system, bringing together existing local and state roads from Chicago through St. Louis to Los Angeles.

Albuquerque is home to the longest urban stretch of Route 66. Officials are planning to construct a new Route 66 Visitor Center in the city. Land has been purchased on West Central at the apex of Nine Mile Hill.
