This is our second trip to this Route 66 Memorial. Don't miss going up on the walking bridge. Bring a padlock and place your name on it an add it to the fencing on the pedestrian bridge. A cool idea. Don't miss this attraction

I didn't know Cyrus Avery was one of the prime movers & designers of Route 66 and this plaza has wonderful statues to commemorate its history. Adjacent to the plaza is the Cyrus Avery Memorial Bridge (no longer in use) across the Arkansas River.
