Route 66 Interpretive Plaza.

Route 66 Interpretive Plaza

This is a nice little outdoor display at the J.D. Metcalf Arbor Garden Park featuring five pedestals with plaques discussing the history of Route 66 and Tulsa's "Vision 2025" Route 66 enhancement project. The park is just south of the intersection where the old and new alignments of Route 66 come together at 11th Street and Mingo Road.

Route 66 shrines like this, for historical highway enthusiasts, seem to offer a lot of factoids but not enough f-u-n.
