No, KS has not even engaged in defining a route for USBR 66 (though it would
be a very short segment across the SE corner of the state).  I'm collecting
all the responses and will get everyone up to speed once the list of mappers
is stable.  I'll keep you posted.

I believe I recall seeing that Kansas already has erected USBR 66 signs.
 I'm down to map any segment west of Joplin (I'm familiar with US 66 up to
that point).

OSM mappers:

As you may know from past discussions there is a developing US Bicycle Route
system and there are a number of projects underway at the state level to
develop and designate USBRs.  Those project teams are at various stages of
development but may be interested in partnering with one or more OSM mappers
to get their proposed or approved routes into the OSM data base.

Steve All and I found similar work to be a fruitful collaboration together,
and I look forward to doing that again multiplied many times at the
statewide level.  Steve has developed a high level of expertise on USBR
mapping and has wiki pages to explain the process AND we have good examples
(of well-tagged routes) at the national and state levels.  He is happy to be
a reference available to answer syntax/tagging/technical questions about OSM
itself that are specific to bicycle route mapping.

Here is the list of current or incipient USBR projects where involvement
from OSM mappers could be helpful to the project effort.

Alabama, USBR 90 and perhaps USBR 23
Arkansas, USBR 80 and USBR 51
California, USBR 66
Indiana, USBR 35, USBR 50
Louisiana, USBR 90
Maryland, USBR 50
Mississippi, USBR 90, USBR 25/35 (Natchez Trace)
Nevada, USBR 50
New Mexico, USBR 66
Ohio, USBR 50
Oklahoma, USBR 66
Tennessee, USBR 23
Virginia, USBR 11
Washington, USBR 10
Wisconsin, USBR 30
Wyoming, USBR 76

If you are interested in helping one or more of these project teams, please
let me know and I will introduce you to the appropriate state level USBR
