Texas Roads - US 66/Loop 279, Amarillo

Former US 66 in Amarillo and Loop 279

All photos are eastbound; sorry about the morning sun.

One of the rare places where old US 66 diverges from Business I-40, in this case because Amarillo Blvd. is a newer alignment.

Amarillo uses a unique variant on the historic US 66 shield, also seen on street name signs. The traffic light is on 6th Ave. at South Carolina St. There are two of them, but the photo of the other one was lost to sun.

Continuing into downtown. Hope you like clowns.

Looking north at Taylor St. (US 287 SB) at the Potter County Library and Courthouse.

Continue west on old US 66 to Vega
Continue east on old US 66 in Amarillo to US 60/Business I-40
