City will redevelop its Route 66

The Route 66 town of Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., will redevelop its portion of the Mother Road, including building a new bridge, that will carry a Route 66 theme, reported the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin.

As part of a Foothill Boulevard widening project, the bridge near Baker Avenue will be torn down and replaced with a new one. The project will be one of several City Hall ventures in 2010. […]

The $15 million project will spruce up Foothill Boulevard on the western part of the city. The street will be widened to six lanes, sidewalks will be constructed and the old bridge will be replaced. Route 66 themes will be incorporated in the design. […]

Traffic will be rerouted during the removal of the bridge, which is expected to take no more than two days, said Lam. Currently the city is relocating utility lines. The bridge is scheduled to come down by next fall.
