Dead Man's Curve
|Built in||Prior to 1926|
|Bypassed in||Prior to 1946|
|Visitors welcome||Public road|
A dangerous curve on Route 66 that got a nickname that suck. The main problem was inappropriate speed of drivers that misjudged the sharpness of the curve and the limited width (18 feet) for 2-way traffic.
The sign on the walking trail has a more elaborate explanation.
