New neon signs illuminated on Route 66

Replica signs placed at Avery Plaza Southwest

Another part of Route 66 in Tulsa is lit up with the glow of neon signs.

Replica signs were placed at Route 66 Cyrus Avery Centennial Plaza near 17th and Southwest Boulevard.

Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum posted on Facebook the signs replicate those that originally ran along the Mother Road in Tulsa.

It’s part of an effort to bring neon back to Tulsa.

Last year, the city announced the Route 66 Neon Sign Grant Program, which offers $40,000 each year in grants for business owners interested in adding neon signs.
