I-40 exit 47, Continental Divide, NM

East < GO > West

This old Whiting Bros. station and motel is located on Route 66 just west of the Continental Divide at I-40 exit 47. It looks like Interlock Installers are now using the old service station as for their business. The motel looks like it had eight units, four on each side of the office.

xThe sign was pretty weathered by the time we snapped this photo in 2012, but the logo was still pretty bright on the west side.

xOld gas pumps were still in place at the former Whiting Brothers Gas station building, but no gas sales available.

x 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
xDid 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.
