This original bit of, hand-lain in 1931 brick, Route 66 in Auburn, Illinois, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and as such is protected from ever being paved over with boring old concrete.
Interestingly you can in fact drive on it, which is kind of surprising… so they must do regular upkeep to keep it traffic ready.

How cool is that? I didn’t know that existed. Been thinking about doing some Route 66 day trips and explore some of the old landmarks. This one is a must for me. Thanks for bringing that to the readers.
