El Reno Mother Road Monument on Oklahoma Route 66 - Giant Route 66 shield photo opportunity

The El Reno Mother Road Monument was erected in 2018, just days before the town’s famous Fried Onion Burger Day festival. Designed by Oklahoma City business PremierCraft, it was created to provide a fun photo opportunity for Route 66 travelers. The idea for the giant Route 66 shield came from Mayor Matt White, who was inspired by other popular photo spots he saw on the Arizona stretch of the road.

The monument features a 10-foot tall black and white Route 66 shield with hollowed out double sixes. Visitors are encouraged to climb inside the 6 and the 6.

Visit this interactive sculpture where Route 66, the Rock Island Railroad, and the historic Chisholm Trail meet, on the corner of West Wade Street and South Choctaw Avenue, near the classic Sid’s Diner.
