The south frontage road, Bellemont Camp Road, going west from I-40 Exit
185 is the 1941 to 1963 alignment and led to the earlier 1926 to 1941
alignment. This road ends a short distance from this intersection. There
are no significant landmarks left on this section of the road. The alignments
on the south side of I-40 were part of those built to avoid the climb
in elevation that the road took going around Fortynine Hill.
About Us We started traveling Historic U.S. Route 66 as a destination in 2009. It's like a 2,400 mile long drive back in time from Chicago to Santa Monica! more
You Know: Many parts of the old 4 lane Route 66 were reverted to a 2 lane
road after 66 was realigned to the interstate. In many places the abandoned
lanes are still there.
