    The Lincoln Highway is a 3300-mile long road stretching across the United States from New York City to San Francisco. Its creation was the result of the first successful effort to create an all-weather transcontinental highway specifically for automobiles. Carl Fisher, Prest-O-Lite headlight manufacturer, launched the idea of developing a coast to coast highway in 1913. Fisher was soon joined in the promotion of this road, named the Lincoln Highway, by the cadre of executives from the automobile, tire, and Portland cement industries who used patriotic appeal and mass marketing to mastermind a national "good roads" campaign.

    The Lakehead Pipeline!

    The Lakehead portion of the pipeline system spans approximately 1,900 miles and includes 3,300 miles of pipe


    The Lakehead system includes 15 connections to pipelines and refineries at various locations in the United States, including the refining areas in and around Chicago, Illinois, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota, Detroit, Michigan, Toledo, Ohio, Buffalo and Patoka/Wood River. The system has three main terminals, located at Clearbrook, Minnesota; Superior, Wisconsin; and Griffith, Indiana.

    It serves all the major refining centers in the Great Lakes region of the United States, as well as Ontario.

    I was all excited, thinking I had this one! I read the first line, and everything is going great, and the WHAM! :haha:

    Nice one.

    I figured it had to be the pipeline, what with you being a ditch digger and all... :dunno:

    Interstate 5 on the West coast and Interstate 95 on the East coast hug the US coastline from north to south. These two corridors together cover over 3,300 miles and link together 19 states and 170 urbanized areas.
