New signs aim to help travelers get their kicks on Route 66

The Oklahoman

It’s a sign of the times.

Oklahoma transportation officials will begin placing new road signs along Route 66 in 2021 because travelers say the historic highway needs to be more clearly marked.

“Route 66 will be more visible to not just tourists, but also your average traveler or just average Oklahoman, which I think will also be very effective of just making more people aware of how valuable the road is,” said Lt. Gov. Matt Pinnell, who also serves as Oklahoma’s secretary of tourism.

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation will replace about 80 existing signs along the highway and add about 320 signs in other places, transportation spokeswoman Terri Angier said. The project is expected to begin in the spring and will cost about $20,000.
