Special Program: Route 66 on a Tank of Gas

Route 66 on a Tank of Gas: The Mother Road in Illinois
Monday, July 9
6:30 P.M. - 7:30 P.M.

Dave Clark's Route 66 on a Tank of Gas 
shows the many Mother Road attractions 
along Illinois’ 300 miles of the highway. 
We explore the importance of the Travel corridor 
from Chicago to St. Louis dating back centuries. 
Starting in the 1920s, Illinois became a leader 
in building “hard roads,”
 pulling the Land of Lincoln “out of the mud” 
on modern ribbons of concrete.
 All the while, getting our kicks on Illinois Route 66.
