Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The Route 66 Corridor Preservation Act of 1999 (Act) instructed the National Park Service to provide technical, grant-making and cost-sharing support to public and private entities that are working to preserve Route 66 resources. These resources include the highway, adjacent structures, and other sites of interest that date from Route 66’s period of outstanding historic significance (1926-1970). The Act authorizes the National Park Service to enter into cooperative agreements for the study, planning, preservation, rehabilitation and restoration of resources related to the Route 66 corridor. Additionally, the National Park Service must act as a clearinghouse for communication among entities interested in the preservation of the corridor.
