100 Years On The Lincoln Highway

University of Michigan, Transportation History Collection

Today we are used to super highways with convenient truck stops, rest stops, smoothly paved surfaces for high speed vehicles with heat, air conditioning, cruise control, adjustable heated and cooled seats, sound systems, GPS, cell phones and so many modern conveniences that travel is a breeze.

But it wasn’t always that way.

Before the Interstate Highway System, one coast to coast road started it all. America would never be the same again. See the history of the legend, with 100 Years On The Lincoln Highway this Sunday night at 7 on Wyoming PBS.

We take it for granted, but it was, and still is, a great part of the American way of life.

As Tolkien said: “The road starts right outside your front door, and goes on forever.”

Who doesn’t love a road trip?
