B-52's and Freeways

Virtual Event Monday, October 26 at 10:00am to 11:00am

Dr. David Rogers, Hasselmann Missouri Professor of Geological Engineering at Missouri S&T, will detail the fascinating connection between the public’s demand for better highways in the 1940s and our military’s need for adequate runways for intercontinental bombers in the early 1950s. This mutual need became an essential component in launching our ambitious Interstate Highway network.
