"America is soon to be cross-laced with a gleaming 40,000-mile network of new superhighways - the kind you dream about after a hard day behind the wheel - and you and every other American will benefit by it. The new "interstate highways system," recently authorized by Congress and the President, with its fast, safe, well-designed roads, will save time, money and lives for motorists...for the man who drives to work every day, the housewife who goes shopping, or the family setting out on a long vacation trip or running over to Grandma's for Sunday dinner. The highways will open up new residential and industrial areas. Thousands of jobs will be created in constructing the roads, supplying materials for them, serving the people who'll use them. The nation's economy will get an unprecedented shot in the arm as industries expand to handle this biggest public works project in history."
