TitleIke's Interstates at 50: Anniversary of the Highway System Recalls Eisenhower's Role as Catalyst
AbstractIn a question and answer piece at the end of the article is found: "Q. What was the first interstate? A. The first construction project using funds authorized by the 1956 act was a portion of U.S. 40 west of St. Louis, now Interstate 70. Another construction project on U.S. 40 (Interstate 70) in Kansas began before that, but the final paving contract was awarded under the 1956 act."
