Fifty years ago, Eisenhower created the plans for the interstate highway system. Not only did it encourage people to drive more, but on a deeper level it affected hundreds of comunities along the formerly busy state highways, when the interstates were designed with a straighter, less obstructed path. The towns along Route 66 are more historically visible victims of the interstate rerouting, but every state has them, like ones along Highway 10 in Minnesota. North Dakota was the first state to complete their highway system.
