Nation highways map of the United States showing one hundred and fifty thousand miles of national highways proposed by the national highways association Washington, D. C.

Organized by millionaire Charles Henry Davis in 1911, the National Highways Association — its slogan, “Good Roads Everywhere” — proposed a nationwide system of highways for the federal government to construct and maintain. The timing was not good, as World War I would consume the government’s attention and funds. The interstate highway system that we know today did not develop until the 1950s, under President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s administration.

This is a giant map containing a range of images, illustrations and information. This is a very interesting and informative map that you’ll be forever studying.
