Installation of Route 66 Historical Markers at 29 Tulsa locations has begun. Work is progressing from east to west. 

This Vision 2025 project is scheduled for completion in two to three weeks. The signs feature tourist-oriented narratives and historical photos.

Vision 2025 was a Tulsa County sales tax from 2004 through 2016 that provided for regional economic development and capital improvements. Vision 2025 included $15 million for projects on Route 66 in Tulsa. Beginning in 2017, the Vision Tulsa sales tax was an extension of Vision 2025 within the city limits of Tulsa.

Some of the locations where the historical markers are being placed include the following:
