America's desire for freedom and the open road resulted in the construction of thousands of highways during the Eisenhower administration. Through interviews, archival footage and photography, America's interstate highway system is revealed to have shaped every aspect of American life and affected the nation's history for better and for worse.




Conceived of in wartime as a way to quickly move troops and supplies, America's interstate highway system transformed the country and its culture in many unforeseen ways. As neighborhoods and cities were reshaped in the name of urban re-renewal, the fast-food hamburger became a national symbol and the cross-country road trip a rite of passage. This 90-minute documentary tells the story of the world's largest human-engineered structure from drawing board to completion.

A film by Lawrence R. Hott and Tom Lewis ; a production of Florentine Films/Hott Productions and WETA-TV. 1997 Peabody Award Winner

87 min - Documentary | History - 27 September 1997 (USA)
Based on the book of the same title by Tom Lewis.
