Welcome to the U.S. Route 66 Task Force, a joint collaboration between the U.S. Roads and U.S. History WikiProjects. The goal is to create, improve and expand the content related to the Mother Road on Wikipedia.


U.S. Route 66 should cover not just the highway, but the mark it left on the country and the people who lived along it. For popular culture works, it should cover the work and not the people who wrote or performed it unless they're indelibly linked. For example, Route 66 (song) would fall under the scope, but Bobby Troup, who wrote the song, would not.
