The Rumble Strips On This Stretch Of Route 66 Play ‘America The Beautiful’

The next time you find yourself driving down Route 66 between mile markers 4 and 5 right outside of Tijeras, New Mexico you should probably slow it down to EXACTLY 45 mph and hit the rumble strips. These rumble strips actually play ‘America The Beautiful’ if you run over them at 45 mph. After this check out the Colorado Department Of Transportation using a WW2 105mm howitzer to clear the snow. Be sure to follow Man Stuff on Google+.

The Rumble Strips On This Stretch Of Route 66 Play ‘America The Beautiful’

OAD contractors engineered an ingenious and melodic way to encourage drivers to obey the speed limit.


New Mexico’s Singing Road is an experiment by the National Geographic Channel as part of its new series “Crowd Control” that premieres next month.

“‘Crowd Control’ takes to the streets with innovative experiments designed to test and curate social behavior, revealing how and why we behave as we do,” Julie Frazier of the National Geographic Channel told ABC News via email.

“We will be releasing footage and additional information closer to the episodes air date.”

The Singing Road was constructed by Sand Bar Construction on old Route 66, just west of Tijeras and east of Albuquerque. A mathematician from Tigress Productions created the attraction for the National Geographic Channel series.

“They started work on Monday and finished on Tuesday,” Dosher said. “It’s remarkable the speed in which they finished it.”

Besides safety, the New Mexico Department of Tourism acknowledges an added value to the project.

“This is such a fun and creative way to encourage motorists to slow down and see more of our beautiful state, and it’s wonderful that National Geographic will be here to highlight the process,” New Mexico Department of Tourism Cabinet Secretary Monique Jacobson said in a statement.

DOT spokeswoman Dosher said, “It is such a promising project. I think it will develop into a great tourist attraction.” Via – ABC News
