News From 66, July 2017: Fanning Outpost to Reopen, Front Street Bridge Reopens

JULY 8--  The Fanning 66 Outpost near Cuba, Missouri, soon will reopen later this summer.  Local businessman Ryan Thompson, owner of Route 66 Mercantile is buying it.

The Outpost opened in 2007 and closed just recently due to lack of business.  It was one of our favorite stops when we were in the area.

Mr. Thompson also plans on getting back the title of World's Largest Rocker after losing it to Casey, Illinois.

JULY 8--  The restoration of Front Street Bridge in Galena, Kansas is completed with a July 22 dedication planned.  That is a neat bridge.  We always know we're out west when we cross it going into Kansas.
