Walk Under Route 66

Field review by the editors.

Chelsea, Oklahoma

Do you yearn to get your kicks under Route 66? This lonely subterranean attraction provides the rare opportunity to walk beneath it. The tunnel is not really close to anything in town, and dates from a time when there was more traffic on the Mother Road and more people in Chelsea.

The underpass had been abandoned for years. In 2016 the town revived it as a Route 66 attraction. Local artist Ken Hollingshead was hired to cover one wall with a mural, while the other was left blank for nether-worldly Route 66 travelers to sign their names.
