BACKGROUND:
E
stablished on November 11, 1926, Route 66 was one of the original highways in the U.S. Highway System. Springfield, Missouri has been officially designated as the "Birthplace of Route 66." From the City of Springfield, Missouri website: "Springfield is officially recognized as the birthplace of what became known as the iconic 'Mother Road.' It was on April 30, 1926 at the Colonial Hotel via telegram that Springfield businessman John T. Woodruff and Oklahoma businessman Cy Avery first proposed U.S. 66 as the name of the new Chicago-to-Los Angeles highway."

Within the last few years, legislation has been introduced and organization of Route 66 Centennial commissions and committees has begun on national, state, and local levels. In addition, legislation has also been moved forward for the federal designation of Route 66 as a National Historic Trail.
