Profile America — Sunday, June 29th. On this date in 1956, President Dwight Eisenhower signed a bill establishing the Interstate Highway System, originally of 41,000 miles. Today, that system is America's main street -- linking all 48 continental states along its nearly 47,000 miles, and making it the largest highway system in the world. The original cost of the interstate system was more than $25 billion. From rural dirt roads to the interstate highways, there are nearly 4 million miles of roads in the U.S., on which we travel more than 4.7 trillion passenger miles annually. Building new roads and bridges involves almost 11,000 businesses, employing over 260,000 people in work worth more than $106 billion a year.
