    After months of trial, during which numerous exhibits were offered, including maps and models of the proposed expressway, the courts determined that NYSDOT planned to construct a dike and a causeway over part of the Hudson River. Air-entrained concrete introduced Air-entrained concrete, one of the greatest advancements in concrete technology, is introduced. Previous tunnels built along the Pennsylvania Turnpike involved the blasting through rock which was then stabilized by a steel superstructure. He could be out on a Friday night watching for drunken drivers. The new Northeastern Extension had something in common with its parent highway, a tunnel built through the Blue Mountains. But the Hudson River Expressway became the target of political opportunism, and it ultimately became the subject of marathon litigation.

    A feasibility study began in with surveyors collecting information and engineers selecting routes and preparing plans. In a letter, Interior Secretary Stewart Udall asked the Commerce Department to withhold funds for the mile HRE pending congressional resolution of the "Hudson Highlands National Scenic Riverway" plan: It is apparent from the information furnished by Congressman Ottinger that a high-speed expressway serving commercial and industrial traffic, as well as automobiles, is contemplated. The decade from saw an increase in the use of intelligent devices to monitor the roadway and travel conditions. Two state parks with pedestrian and bicycle paths, swimming facilities, fishing piers, marinas and restaurants, were incorporated in the revised HRE design.

Highways Timeline A reliable network of roads, bridges, and tunnels is so fundamental to any country's economic and social well-being that some of the greatest engineering feats of all time have involved solving the problem of how to get from Point A to Point B—or rather, how to get over, under, around, or through some natural obstacle in order to go from Point A to Point B.

Many of these named highways were supplanted by the United States Numbered Highways system of After 34 days of Iowa mud pits, sand drifts in Nevada and Utahoverheated radiatorsflooded roads, cracked axles, and enthusiastic greetings in every town that thought it had a chance of being on the new highway, the tour arrived for a parade down San Francisco's Market Street before thousands of cheering residents.
