voice two:

a motorist travels west on u.s. route 66, near riverton, kansas

and i'm steve ember. the historic route sixty-six from chicago to los angeles is eighty years old this year. this week, we go for a ride through the colorful history of a road that has been called "the main street of america."

(music: "route 66"/rosemary clooney)

voice one:

the idea for route sixty-six started in oklahoma. citizens there wanted to link their state with states to the east and west. by the nineteen twenties, federal officials wanted to connect state roads to provide a shorter, faster way across the country. so a plan was developed to connect existing state roads into one long national highway.

united states highway sixty-six was established on november eleventh, nineteen twenty-six. it was one the first federal highways. it crossed eight states. it was three thousand eight hundred kilometers long.
