Welcome to our Projects page. Along with promoting the features of the Mother Road, our primary work is in preserving those historical features along the road for future generations to see and enjoy.
We are therefore proud of the projects that we currently have in process and have on the drawing board.
Without the help of the volunteers of our Association members, many of these projects cannot be done. Through the dedication and enthusiasm of our members, we are helping preserve the long road of Route 66 through California, each mile of the way.
Corridor Management Plan
The Barstow to Needles Corridor Management Plan, “CMP” for short, is a joint project between the California Historic Route 66 Association and the Bureau of Land Management. Governmental and nongovernmental organization partners have teamed up to help preserve the history of Route 66.
Creating the CMP is a first step into designating this portion of Route 66 into a National Scenic Byway. There are many steps to take before the designation will occur.
The California Historic Route 66 Association always has an iron in the fire when comes to preserving the Mother Road. This is a summary of projects that are on the horizon that we hope to tackle.
