Route 66 Musical Road

The signs are gone (the state took them up), and this section of road is due for a repaving, but apparently the New Mexico DOT isn't going to use taxpayer money to recut the musical strips after the repaving. The Musical Road will soon be silent, from what I'm reading.

Very cool. Hard to find signs are gone. Between milepost 4 and 5 west of town on 333.

The song pavement is still there, though the blue music signs that marked it are gone. It can be a bit of a challenge to find just the right spot. The music is not very loud, but it was enchanting to hear!

Make sure you are driving on the edge of the road as of it were those "rumblers" to wake you up.
