Route 66 Case Study
Annual direct economic effects from Route 66 spending include, at a minimum, $38 million in tourism spending, $67 million in Main Street spending, and $27 million in museum spending—for a total of $132 million. Further, the one cumulative long-term spending program that was examined in this study, the Main Street-related activity occurring in Route 66-located communities, had produced $923 million in direct economic effects (adjusted for inflation) over the life of the Main Street initiative.
Of the 19 million out-of-state visitors to Arizona, 1.55 million are largely inspired to visit by cultural heritage motives.
Out-of-state cultural heritage travelers spend an estimated $2 billion annually in the state.
Arizona residents report that feeling connected to the state’s cultural heritage and a fulfilling lifestyle are important benefits. They also indicate that they are able to attain these benefits by visiting cultural heritage attractions.
Designation of Arizona US Route 80
connects with other US 80 designation initiatives in CA and projects in other states.
Has the power to thematically reconnect communities that were bypassed by the freeway system.
Potential for significant economic impact for rural communities along the alighment.

Historic Roadway Designation
Special designation or recognition of this corridor as a Historic Roadway, at the local, state or federal level, can raise awareness, secure protections, and help generate funds. For historic preservation, a Historic Corridor Management Plan should be developed, and designation of the corridor should be pursued at all three governmental levels, including the National Scenic Highway designation. A signage plan that supports the visitor experience should be developed in conjunction with this designation. The City of Tucson should consider returning the name the roadway to its designation during its auto culture hey-day: “Miracle Mile.”
A1c Historic Roadway Designation:
Explore possible historic roadway designation for Oracle Road and Miracle Mile. Such designation, at the local, state, or federal level, can raise awareness, secure protections, and help generate funds.
