James Blvd. at Hwy. 68, St. James, MO

East < GO > West

This short divided road is called W. James Blvd. because the landowner would not sell the property to the state unless they built a divided boulevard. The divided section is only 2-1/2 blocks long.

The old road continues west beyond where divided road ends to I-44 and where curves to become the south frontage road is where the old road was buried by I-44, turn around there and back track to this intersection then turn north, cross the freeway and head west on the north frontage road..

x About Us We started traveling Historic U.S. Route 66 as a destination in 2009. It's like a 2,400 mile long drive back in time from Chicago to Santa Monica! more
xDid You Know: Many parts of the old 4 lane Route 66 were reverted to a 2 lane road after 66 was realigned to the interstate. In many places the abandoned lanes are still there.
