These route sixty six maps have been created using Google Maps. The brand new 88-mile (142 km) toll road paralleled US sixty six for its complete length and bypassed every of the cities along sixty six. The Turner Turnpike was joined in 1957 by the new Will Rogers Turnpike , which linked Tulsa with the Oklahoma-Missouri border west of Joplin, Missouri , again paralleling US sixty six and bypassing the towns in northeastern Oklahoma along with its whole stretch by means of Kansas.
In reality, of all the roads coated on this e-book, Route 66 has perhaps felt the best influence from the fashionable Interstate world; for many stretches you will be forced to leave the old two-lane and comply with the tremendous slabs which were built proper on top of the previous street.
(To dodge native visitors, stay on I-25 at exit 294 till the Old Pecos Trail exit.) Some sources declare that the route into Santa Fe was on Old Santa Fe Trail, reasonably than Outdated Pecos; this road intersects the Old Las Vegas Freeway a brief distance east of Outdated Pecos Path, and the two trails merge simply south of downtown.

Observe MO 266 to the junction with MO 96 west of Halltown On the junction, continue west on “Outdated sixty six” (a county highway, NOT MO 96) via Paris Springs Junction to the intersection (once more) of MO 96. Cross MO 96 onto SR N, flip west on “Previous sixty six” (county street – old bridge is visible), go through Spencer and follow the old road to MO ninety six (yet again!).
