When a headlight manufacturer and motorcar mogul decided to build America's first highway in 1912, their goal was simple: to promote the use of private automobiles. But for a fast-growing, far-flung, car-crazy nation, that simple rock highway was the beginning of a revolution and the country would never be the same. Learn the whole story of America's 42,000-mile-long Interstate Highway System through rare photographs, films, computer recreations and revealing interviews. From the days of paving rocks to modern day "Bott's Dots," experts explain the ideas and innovations that have gone into America's roads. Former officials recall the strange origins of Eisenhower's "national defense highways" system, which was completed in 1984. And historians explore how this sprawling, $125 billion lifeline has transformed America.
