Another Route 66 Attraction Set to Open Next Month
Route 66 travelers will have one more stop in the cities next month. The old Sprague's service station at 305 E. Pine St., in Normal is set to open just over a year after the town government took on the struggling rehabilitation project. Normal City Council signed off in May 2016 on spending $229,000 to buy the property, $200,000 to improve the building, $24,000 to buy an adjoining parking lot and $5,000 to compensate Terri Ryburn for her work there.The town renovated the parking lot with $148,000 in sales tax funds for economic development.
