A 15-person commission will be formed to help commemorate historic Route 66.

President Trump signed a bill into law that’ll create the group that’ll recommend activities to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the highway decommissioned in 1985.

The U.S. House of Representatives had passed The Route 66 Centennial Commission Act nearly four months after the legislation was approved by the Senate.

Route 66 was commissioned in 1926 to be the first all-paved highway that connected Chicago to Los Angeles.

Route 66 passed through eight states, including Missouri, and is still driveable through portions of the KRMS listening area in Phelps, Pulaski, Laclede and Dallas Counties.
