History of the US Highway System (1800 words)
Before the Interstate Highway system brought fast, limited access highways to the United States, there was, and still remains, another nationwide system of highways that enabled travelers to follow standardized routes to any part of the nation.
The Lincoln Highway, from New York to San Francisco was the first and by the early 1920s many highway organizations were formed which placed and promoted their own routes.
It appears the original plan was for the Interstate Highways to be co-signed and routed with their corresponding US highway and from about 1960 to 1964 this is exactly what the Division of Highways did.
U. S Highways: From US 1 to (US 830) (3460 words)
Roads built in the 1930's were inadequate for the faster and wider cars of the 1950's.
