EZ UPDATES

For readers of the EZ 66 Guide for Travelers, I have provided free online updates to help keep your Route 66 experience as current as possible. As you might imagine, Route 66 is constantly undergoing changes, some good, others not so. Businesses open and close, roads are re-routed and street names change.

Please check back here just before your trip for the latest info. Entries are dated as to when they were added.

If you wish to purchase your own copy of the EZ Guide, please go here.

EZ 66 readers have been helpful in keeping me keep the guidebook updated in between my own road trips, so if you discover something that needs to be addressed while on your journey, please let me know!

Instead of WEST I-55 it should say SOUTH in the WB directions.

People keep having trouble seeing the Blue Whale! Its sitting off to the right(Westbound)in a pond, down lower than the road.

Please look at the detailed directions as to the Whale's location, both in the driving directions and in the text and detail map.

If you can see the old Arrowood Trading Post, the Blue Whale entrance is on the other side of Oklahoma State Highway 66!

Westbound, if you come to the Rice Street stoplight, you've missed it. Turn around and go back.

The Blue Whale is NOT on the OPTION.

Yikes. I must have had my head on backwards the day I revised Illinois page-3!
The first paragraph of the text should begin with "WB: To reach the EASTERN terminus..."!!!!!

Argh.

I also got my left and tight mixed up in the OPTION (paragraph 3). You turn LEFT on Adams Street! But I already confessed that long ago.

I just can't believe no one else corrected me on these two blunders.

I got a report today from a reader who drove the section from EXIT 8 to Lupton. Apparantly the road is now open!

On Illinois page 23, the already rough pavement between Waggoner and the overpass over I-55 (north​ of Litchfield) is currently covered in GRAVEL. Hopefully it's being repaved. But for now you should stay on I55 from Exit 72 to Litchfield if you are on a motorcycle or nice car!

Got some updates from Carl today!
WB (westbound) after you cross over I-55 south of Waggoner, to turn right on "Old Route 66", the sign is missing!

Don't continue tocross the rr at grade here. Just turn right onto the first road after crossing over I-55.
