Historic Route 6ATLANTIC – The Atlantic Community Promotion Commission (CPC) approved $680 in funding during its Thursday meeting to help pay for Historic Route 6 Signs. According to the funding request, the funds would be used “to provide (Historic Route 6) signage within the Atlantic City limits. U.S. Route 6 is the longest transcontinental highway in the U.S., and it goes through Cass County, including Seventh Street in Atlantic. The US Route 6 Tourist Association is a non-profit group promoting cultural preservation and economic development along the route (www.route6tour.com). A Route 6 tour came through this past summer, and many of them spent the night (and some money!) in Atlantic. Proper signage would encourage more of these events.”
