US 66

US 66 was a major (almost) cross-country route from Los Angeles to Chicago. It was one of the most popular highways in Arizona during its height. US 66 was mostly replaced by I-40. I-40 was routed around towns however, so old US 66 segments are marked as Business Routes of I-40. In Arizona, US 66 is designated as Historic Route 66.
