GRANTS, N.M. (AP) - A western New Mexico city has added a new drive-thru roadside attraction on its Route 66 path.

The city of Grants is holding a ribbon cutting on Saturday to celebrate the completion of the “Route 66 Neon Drive Thru” in the heart of downtown.

Officials hope the 18-foot tall illuminated roadside arch will become a tourist hotspot for fans traveling through Route 66.

Grants partnered with the NMSU-Grants welding department to build the Neon Drive Thru and is one of many projects in the works to revitalize its downtown.
