ARTBA will host a major event June 29 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., to mark the 60th anniversary of the law that kicked-off the funding and construction of the nation’s 47,000-mile Interstate Highway System.

The event will also explore what the Interstate Highway System of the future should look like to keep America moving.

ARTBA was founded in 1902 to advocate a federal-state partnership to build a defined national network of modern, lane-divided roads that would connect all state capitals with each other and with Washington, D.C.  That vision became a reality on June 29, 1956, when President Dwight Eisenhower signed legislation into law creating the federal Highway Trust Fund and the federal-aid highway program.
