Route 66 News

Neon lights installed in part of Albuquerque’s downtown

Neon lights were installed on Route 66-themed lampposts along a section of Central Avenue (aka Route 66) in downtown Albuquerque during the weekend, according to various media outlets.

KRQE-TV in Albuquerque has a video about the lights:

Albuquerque Business First explained the project:

Through a partnership and grant with the Public Service Co. of New Mexico and a Downtown ABQ MainStreet initiative, LED neon lights will light up 3rd Street to 5th Street along Central Avenue. Eventually, through additional funding from the city, the neon will stretch from 1st Street to 8th Street.

And, as the previous report from KRQE intimated, the fact the colors on the LED neon can be changed is a big plus, not to mention their durability and energy efficiency.
