A look at Tulsa’s Cyrus Avery Centennial Plaza October 28, 2006Posted by Ron Warnick in Attractions.
I was able to procure handout artist’s renderings of the Cyrus Avery Centennial Plaza planned near the Route 66 museum and interpretive center that’s going to be built at 11th Street and Southwest Boulevard in Tulsa. It’s all part of the Vision 2025 master plan for Route 66 in Tulsa County.
The first image is of the plaza from an overhead view. The second image is mainly of the overpass over Route 66 that leads to the plaza. The second image is of the plaza itself. These are thumbnail images that you can click on and get a better look. Note the long pedestrian walkway and overpass that links to the museum. The flags represent each of the eight states in which Route 66 goes through.
Also, the statue you see in the one image is of the old meeting the new — a horse pulling a carriage that’s startled by the horseless carriage. This essentially matches the history of early Route 66 — where dirt roads were replaced by modern highways.
