I have reviewed several sites on Rte 66. Wondering if there is a on-line site that depicts which sections are original and which have been replaced by Interstates. Ideally, I am looking for something that depicts the Interstate exits/mile markers where you exit an Interstate and enter an original section, then where you must return to an Interstate..
Anyone know of something like that?
To get an idea, go over to the map on my webpage, zoom in and scroll along to see where 66 went. Since it is Google based you can zoom in and get exit numbers from it.
I will second the vote to get the EZ66 Guide. It will get you over most of the alignments that will give you a great experience.

While not as detailed as Jerry Mc Clanahan's "Route 66 EZ Guide" or the various maps and "turn by turn" guides, it does have interesting reprints of 1930's AAA "Trip Tiks" (which were produced by the Automobile Club of Southern California [ACSC]) with present day Interstate Highways overlaid for comparison.
I use google maps - both the overhead satellite and street views - as another good source in tracing old-vs-present day routes.

It is exactly as someone else said, bits and pieces of road that one minute will be one side of the interstate, then the other, sometimes following it for miles and miles and you will be the only car on it while you watch the trucks zoom along the interstate, then your bit of road will go off into nowhere, get twisty, go through ghost towns etc, the scenery changes as you go along... amazing!
This site has very good maps with every allignment of 66, and you can see if it's drivable or not.
An example can be found here http://www.stjo66.de/images/66-IL2005_1 ... olie08.jpg and http://www.stjo66.de/images/66-NM2005-1 ... olie01.jpg
All the alligntments have differnt colours, and ramps to/from interstate are in thick black lines.
