The romance of Route 66 continues to captivate people around the world. After World War II, many thousands more expressed their upward mobility by leaving the industrial East, bound for good jobs in the suburban idyll of Southern California—again following Route 66, which came to embody the demographic shift from the Rust Belt to the Sun Belt.

Finally, after the last stretch of freeway was completed in , Route 66 was officially decommissioned.

Home Blog. Click to see an example of a map. Our maps are color coded to show the Historic Route 66 alignment: the original alignment, later realignments and also the parts that can still be seen but are out of bounds and cannot be driven. We also show where the freeways overlap the original roadbed and some older roads that predate the Mother Road and were part of it when it was created. Though our altitude webpage is not a map, it has plenty of information on the altitude of Route 66 as it crosses the US from Chicago to Santa Monica. Learn about its highest points in the Ozarks and its passes in the Rocky Mountains; the maximum elevation it reaches in Arizona, and its sea level altitude when it reaches the Pacific Ocean.
