Our street maintenance department 
has begun painting roadway 
markings along the City stretch 
of the historic U.S. Route 66! Staff 
began their work on Fifth Avenue 
and will work their way west to 
Mountain Avenue over the next 
couple of days.

The route was established November of 1926 as the first all-
weather highway linking Chicago to Los Angeles! Unlike other 
highways, Route 66 was the shortest highway that reduced the 
distance between the Midwest and the Pacific Coast. Many of 
our Foothill cities are part of the historical route including our 
very own Monrovia!
