EL RENO, Okla. – It is one of the most well-known roads in America, and it will now be celebrated in one Oklahoma town.

In February, the El Reno City Council unanimously agreed to celebrate the history of Route 66 with a monument designed to capture the attention and inspire drivers.

Now, the monument is complete.

Organizers say the monument will be placed on Wednesday, May 2 at the intersection of the Rock Island Railroad and the historic Chisholm Trail along Route 66.

The monument will be placed in time for the 30th Fried Onion Burger Day, which will be held on Friday, May 4 and Saturday, May 5.
