But state officials from Oklahoma and New Mexico plan memorials to Route 66. The New Mexico Highway Commission plans plans to designate a section of the road near Albuquerque as "Old U.S. 66" and Oklahoma transportation officials will erect four plaques to commemorate its historical significance, Freidenrich said. "Nostalgia is an integral part of American people. We like to cling to that kind of thing," he said. "If we were eliminating Route ABC, no one except local folks would care. I think this interest is kind of neat."
