Daniel Cerone is mistaken when he writes that Route 66 "has become entombed beneath interstate freeway, leaving behind an arid landscape of boarded-up roadside cafes and dying gas stations" ("Highway 66 Revisited," June 6). Route 66 is still alive with more than 80% of the highway travelable and enjoyed by visitors from around the world. It crosses lands as diverse and dynamic as any in the country and offers a close-up of America. You can still get a meal at the Cozy Drive-In in Springfield, Ill., Barney's Beanery in Hollywood or numerous cafes in between.
