First transcontinental highway in the United State
Description: Lincoln highway the first transcontinental highway in the US.In 1912,there were almost no good roads to speak of in the US. The relatively few miles of improved road were only around towns and cities. A road was improved if it was graded one was lucky to have gravel or brick. Asphalt and concrete were yet to come. Most of the 2.5 million miles of roads were just dirt bumpy and dusty in dry weather, impassable in wet weather. Worse yet, the roads didnt really lead anywhere. They spread out aimlessly from the center of the settlement. To get from one settlement to another, it was much easier to take the train.
