The Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956 established an interstate highway system in the United States. This act authorized the building of highways throughout the nation, which would be the biggest public works project in the nation's history. In 1919, long before his term in office, Eisenhower first realized the value of good highways when he participated as an observer/volunteer in the Army's first transcontinental motor convoy. Once in office, President Eisenhower called for a "modern, interstate highway system" in his State of the Union address in 1954. The Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956 allowed the expanding of the US interstate system to 41,000 miles. The act guaranteed construction of all segments on a "pay-as-you-go" basis, being funded by taxing on production and consumables related to roadway use. The increased mobility Americans enjoyed as a result of the act spurred substantial growth in interstate commerce, and definitely affected development in the western US states. Hard to imagine the United States without this robust interstate system that now carries 23% of all roadway traffic in the US.
Most are familiar with the red white and blue shield with the word 'Interstate' and which indicates as part of the federal network. Many also know that generally, routes with odd numbers run north and south, and even numbers run primarily east to west. Major routes tend to end in 1s and 0s and three digit route numbers tend to be secondary highways.
