Almost 100,000 miles of roads and interstate highways span across the state of Tennessee. Today, it’s easy to take for granted the system that connects rural and urban communities to each other and the rest of America. But 200 years ago, almost none of that existed. Highway See gives an in-depth look at how roads in Tennessee came to be, starting with the collective drive of citizens and public officials to better the lives of everyone in the state.
How did we get our roads? What prompted their creation? What effort goes into maintaining them? This is Highway See. In every episode, we’ll answer those questions and get you to “see” Tennessee’s highway system for the engineering marvel that it is.
