The modern U.S. Interstate Highway System was, and is, one of the greatest public works projects in history. President Eisenhower signed into law the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956 as a way of standardizing all highways. Since the act became a reality the United States has become a nation on the paved road. Unfortunately the system is so crowded with cars and trucks that actually shutting down the highways to repair them is an impossibility.
