Route 66 Centennial commission created

The Oklahoma Legislature has created a new, 21-member Oklahoma Route 66 Centennial Commission to plan, coordinate and implement a statewide effort celebrating the 100th anniversary of historic Route 66 in 2026.

Lt. Gov. Matt Pinnell is chairman of the commission. The Oklahoma Historical Society is providing support services. Route 66 was created by federal designation on Nov. 11, 1926.

Pinnell said a kickoff symposium Dec. 3-4 at the Oklahoma History Center. The legislation creating the commission calls for a master plan to include suggestions for exhibits, programs and events; creating greater awareness of the highway’s cultural impact; and opportunities to combine private investment and public policy to encourage preservation along the route.

Additional information is available by calling Bob Blackburn, executive director of the Oklahoma Historical Society, at 522-5202.
