Legislation Designating Route 66 as a National Historic Trail Reintroduced in the House

From Preservation Action:

Rep. Darin LaHood (R-IL) and Rep. Grace Napolitano (D-CA) reintroduced the Route 66 National Historic Trail Designation Act (H.R. 8244), which would establish Route 66 as National Historic Trail. Similar legislation was introduced and unanimously passed the House in 2018, but failed to pass the Senate before the end of the last Congress.

Stretching 2,400 miles from Chicago, IL to Santa Monica, CA, across 8 states and more than 300 communities, Route 66 would become the 34th National Historic Trail and one of the longest. The bill would permanently protect the historic route which saw decades of decline after most of the route was replaced or bypassed with the construction of the interstate highway system. Route 66 has since experienced a renaissance, becoming one of the biggest heritage tourism attractions in the country. Last month the Senate passed the Route 66 Commission Act (H.R 66, S. 1014) which would establish a federal commission to commemorate and celebrate the 100th anniversary of Route 66 in 2026. 

Preservation Action joins the Route 66 Road Ahead Partnership and numerous national, state, and local organizations urging the designation of Route 66 as a National Historic Trail.
