In Albuquerque, New Mexico, residents are complaining that a historic Route 66 sign has been broken but not fixed for some time.

Residents are upset because they believe it is part of Albuquerque’s history.

 

According to a kote.com article, “The city really understands how important these signs are, and we are working hard to get them fixed,” Albuquerque deputy director for the Department of Municipal Development, Melissa Lozoya, said.
City officials want to replace all of the broken signs and lights with LED lighting. It will cost them roughly $100,000 for repairs.
