Route 66 Wish List

1. The City of Albuquerque has been working with Strata Design, community leaders and citizen groups to write a Route 66 Action Plan, a long term plan to bring the ‘Mother Road’ back to Albuquerque and promote is as a destination for visitors as well as a great place to live, work and play.

Key areas include transportation improvements, inviting streetscapes, business improvements and incentives for development, and a strong Route 66 brand and experience.

The City has several projects in the works that will benefit Central Ave. (also known as Route 66) in Albuquerque, including Bus Rapid Transit, a high-speed broadband ‘digital backbone’, and plans for improvements to the El Vado historic site.

We are putting together a 'Wish List' of projects along ABQ's Route 66 (Central Ave.) of things we would like to see in the future.

We’re looking for projects that are ‘doable’ and will have a positive impact on Route 66 in ABQ. Think about things we could achieve over the next 5 years.

The survey has an initial list of 12 projects, that you can rank, with 1 being your highest priority and 12 your lowest. There is a space at the bottom of the survey for you to write in additional project ideas.
