Route 66


 



Route 66

Vision 2025 funds will be provided to improve the national icon that winds through Tulsa know as the Mother Road. Route 66 exists because of the efforts of Tulsan Cyrus Avery who would not give up on his vision for a highway across America and today Route 66 is considered a valuable piece of Americana and international tourist draw. Improvements include signage, streetscaping, lighting and specific enhancements of the 11th Street Bridge. This Vision 2025 project will enhance economic development, strengthen adjacent neighborhoods and promote tourism. The improvement area stretches 26 miles along 11th Street from 193rd East Avenue then following 11th Street west to SW Boulevard to Old Sapulpa Road ending at the Tulsa County line.

In 2004, an estimated 50,000 Route 66 travelers will be drawn to Tulsa. Average direct spending impact is estimated to be $13,500,000 per year and the average indirect spending impact is estimated to be more than $40 million per year. The number of jobs impacted by this project is expected to exceed 700.
