Coming from the East to (what was then known as) 8th Avenue traveled West then dog legged through downtown to 6th Ave. This was done because 8th Ave ended not far west of Polk St. They actually laid the hwy through here in 1925. The developer for this area of route 66 knew it was coming this way and built the road to the then specs for a hwy. Then all they had to do was tie in and pick up at the other end. There was no state dept. of transportation, yet. So if there was to be signage each area had to create their own signs so all were different. Around the 50’s came standard signs’ which have been copied since the 80’s and sold everywhere. At the time the hwy was finished and commissioned Amarillo was considered the mid-point of the hwy and the only city it went through besides Chicago and Los Angeles. I know you think that is weird, as now there are cities like Tulsa, Oklahoma, Joplin and such. At the time the hwy was laid and started these cities did not want the noisy, smelly cars going through their towns disrupting everything so the Road went on their outskirts later to be encompassed as the towns grew. Around the early 50’s 8th Ave (known as Amarillo Blvd.) was expanded into the first loop around the city and then called that Route 66 and this area became Route 66 business.
