Bow alum returns for highway centennial

July 1, 2013

The Lincoln Highway was the first coast-to-coast road made for driving: instead of dirt, the highway was paved with concrete or gravel. The New York to San Francisco route made it possible for anyone with a car to drive across the country. The highway’s construction was an early sign that cars would transform American society.
