The ribbon is to be cut for the Route 66 Train Park along Front Street near the K Street underpass at 10 a.m. Thursday, June 6. A multi-year project in honor of all veterans spearheaded by the Needles Downtown Business Alliance, the park has received support from Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway, the Fort Mojave Indian Tribe, Joe Jones of the Shell/Subway/Dairy Queen travel center on Needles Highway, and the city of Needles. The park is to feature historic train cars, benches, trash and recycling receptacles, a marked walking path and more. Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 404 will perform an opening ceremony.
