Historic Route 66 in Shrewsbury
The City of Shrewsbury is currently engaged in a Historic Route 66 Corridor Revitalization Project.
This project encompasses the section of Historic Route 66 Roadway that is located within the
Cities of Shrewsbury, Webster Groves, Marlborough, Crestwood and Sunset Hills.
This project kicked off with the installation of the Route 66 Photo Deck, located at a point adjacent to
the intersection of the BNSF Railway and the Historic Corridor (at the Center of Kenrick Commercial District).
The City of Shrewsbury will be involved in other activities and projects related to the Route 66 Corridor in the
coming years. Throughout this timeframe, the City will keep the community apprised of its activities.
