Getting Your Kicks on Route 66-- Part 2

4. Route 66 is the only federal highway to be decommissioned from the 1926 grid that created the U.S. Highway System. However, it was not decommissioned all at once, just parts at a time as the corresponding U.S. Interstate was finished. The very last stretch was decommissioned in Williams, Arizona, in 1984. //// 5. Bobby Troup met Nat "King" Cole within days of he and his wife Cynthia arriving in Los Angeles in February 1946 after driving across the country on 66. For some reason, the name "Winona" in his song is used out of order of places visited driving east to west. --RoadDog
