The Challenge

The US Department of the Interior, National Park Service, and the financial assistance recipient, ADOT, entered into a partnership to develop a database compiling information on the history and construction of the portion of Route 66 that passes through Arizona.

The Solution

WestLand conducted extensive archival and historic research on the history, construction, and maintenance of Route 66 in Arizona, to compile a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) database, and to summarize the results of this work in a narrative report.

The Result

Although the highway has been officially decommissioned since 1984, American and foreign travelers increasingly seek out the opportunity to drive some or all of Route 66 as the quintessential American road trip experience.

The road not only has had a significant social impact but continues to provide a substantial economic impact as well. The purpose of this database is to provide land managers with planning tools and resources to better manage this historic resource.
