US 66 Is Everywhere in Downtown Albuquerque

US 66 historic district street sign

Sometime between 2000 and 2004, Albuquerque began designating some downtown areas as historic districts. The historic district along Central Avenue, the former US 66, is denoted as the US 66 historic district. Street signs in the district have little US 66 shields to commemorate the highway.

This photo, at 7th and Central, was taken in May 2004.
