Driving on the sidewalk … Route 66’s Sidewalk Highway, that is.

Sidewalk Highway

Old Route 66
Afton, OK
Old alignment of Route 66

In between Miami and Afton is a zig-zaggy stretch of 9 foot wide original Route 66 roadbed, hence the “Sidewalk” moniker. In certain places of this narrow byway, you can see the original white lines on the edges of the Portland concrete road. Drive slow and be ready to pull over to the shoulder is another car approaches. It is on the National Register of Historic Places, and can still be driven with a little caution.
