Abandoned Gas Stations

I-40, Exit 0, Glenrio, TX

East < GO > West

To get to Glenrio from I-40 you get off the freeway here at TX Exit 0. If you are going east and took the old road from San Jon this is where you have to get on I-40 to continue going east. Both of these stations are located on on the north frontage road.

x This abandoned gas station shows the "Ice Box" styling complete with a porcelain enameled metal paneled exterior. These two stations may prove that "being on the freeway" isn't enough to sustain a business.

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.
