Highway Project of the Past

One of the speakers at the conference referenced this picture from the opening of Interstate 94. Miss Blacktop and Miss Concrete helped issue in an era of highway construction that we don't see too much anymore. Well, unless you consider the upcoming Columbia River Crossing project.  Divided Highways is a fabulous book that documents the era and links back to the work at the Texas Transportation Institute and many other state highway departments across the country.
