JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) — Supporters of Route 66, the iconic U.S. highway that carried travelers from Illinois to California, are pushing to have the roadway added to a national list of historic trails.
A group of advocates called the Route 66 Road Ahead are supporting legislation in the U.S. House seeking the designation. It would likely make the 2,400-mile road part of the National Park Service, which would provide signs and online resources to promote the highway.
