Happy Birthday, Interstate Highway System – Travel I-790 Today to Celebrate!

NY 287/To I-95 in Rye
Eric Meier Collection

It was on this date in 1956 that the Interstate Highway System was created.  A system of limited access, high speed routes were needed to serve the travelling and defense needs of the nation.

There were similar highways created earlier like the Pennsylvania Turnpike and the New York Parkway system (for a ride back in time on an older style parkway, try the Lake Ontario State Parkway west of Rochester).  Highways like these and the German Autobahn were used as models for the roads that now crisscross the nation.

Today, New York State is the home to 30 routes on the Interstate Highway System, including I-90 and I-790 that serve Utica.
