Happy Biiirthday Dwight D Eisenhower National System of Interstate and Defense Highwaaaays
Happy 50th Birthday to yooooooooooou.
You can read more about it and take a FUN Interstate Highway Quiz at the USA Today website. The article seems to be a little Grumpy Gussy about the whole Insterstate thing but they are just jealous that Ike thought of it before they did.
My little burg of Bangor has about a dozen exits which make intercity travel by Interstate easier than crossing the street. Eisenhower was set against the Interstate being used that way and the PLAN was to go around cities with little feeder highways going in. Screw Eisenhower. He drank and used to beat Mamie. I know because I read it in a book.
More cool Federal Highway Information here.
