Along 66, April 2019: Dedication of Massive Sculpture in Tulsa
APRIL 29-- The dedication of the massive 70 feet long and 30 feet high Route 66 Rising sculpture in Tulsa will be May 20. It is really something to see and cost $650,000.
It will be attended by the grandchildren of Cyrus Avery, the "Father of Route 66" whose efforts led to the famous road. The sculpture is located at Admiral Boulevard and Mingo Road. The traffic circle here is on the site of Avery's motel.
This is an oft-overlooked alignment of Route 66 which also has Hank's Hamburgers.
