Along 66, June 2018: Illinois Bicentennial Coin and Galena, Kansas

These stories are taken from the Route 66 News site which has pictures and more information as well as many other articles.  I just pick out the ones of most interest to me.

JUNE 3--  Route 66 included in possible Illinois Bicentenial coin.  (It was included and shows the highway running its route through the state.)  These coins are available for $45.

Glad to be included.

JUNE 3--  Galena, Kansas, to redevelop more of its downtown.   It is definitely something they need to do as much of it is run-down.  In 2006, 4 Woman on the Route opened and proved to be quite popular, especially with the real Tow Mater, the truck that inspired the character in the movie "Cars."  The place is now known as Cars of the Route.
