AASHTO Celebrates the 60th Anniversary of America’s Interstate Highway System

Posted by Infra on Thursday, July 14th, 2016

60 years ago President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed the Federal-Aid Highway Act, which was also known as the National Interstate and Defense Highways Act, into law on June 29, 1956. Within a few years the nation would see construction begin replacing a network of two-lane U.S. highways with the multi-lane, high-speed interstate system we know today. This historic and essential system of highways has become the backbone for America’s prosperity and quality of life. The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials has been there every step of the way and in this video AASHTO communications director Lloyd Brown, shows you where you can find more information about this important anniversary.
