News From Along Route 66, April 2017: The El Vado Motel to reopen

These items are taken from the Route 66 News site.  This site has a lot more things in it, but I just choose the ones I am most interested in and have comments about them.  Plus, there is a lot more information and pictures.  If you want to know ANYTHING about Route 66, go to this site.

APRIL 2--  El Vado Motel work begins in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and hope to have it finished by August 1.  It will be reopening as a boutique motel.  Ponderosa Brewing is to open a tap room on premises and there will be food pods, 21 motel rooms and retail spaces.

This is an $18 million project and $3 million has come from the city.

Daniel Murphy opened the El Vado Auto Court Motel on Route 66 in 1937.  It was listed on the NRHP in 1993 and closed in 2005.

Always great when an old and neat-looking structure is re-purposed and svaed.

Albuquerque putting its money where its mouth is!

Congratulations to All.  --RoadDoh
