USA Highways - Interstate Highway System
The Dwight D. Eisenhower National System of Interstate and Defense Highways, commonly called the Interstate Highway System (or simply, the Interstate System), is a network of limited-access highways (also called freeways or expressways) in the United States that is named for President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who championed its creation. The entire system, as of 2006, has a total length of 46,876 miles (75,440 km), making it both the largest highway system in the world and the largest public works project in history. The Interstate Highway System is a subsystem of the National Highway System.
- List of Interstate Highways - Wikipedia
Primary Interstate Highways are the major interstate highways of the United States and are assigned a one or two-digit route number. Even route numbers are assigned to east/west routes, with the lower numbered routes being further south (I-10) and higher numbered routes in the north (I-90). Similarly, odd route numbers are assigned to north/south routes, with the lower numbered routes being further west (I-5) and the higher numbered routes being further east (I-95).

- US Route 30 - Wikipedia
U.S. Route 30 is an east-west main route of the system of United States Numbered Highways, with the highway traveling across the northern tier of the country. The western end of the highway is at Astoria, Oregon; the eastern end is in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Despite long stretches of parallel and concurrent Interstate Highways, it has managed to avoid the decommissioning that has happened to other long haul routes such as U.S. Route 66.
Much of the historic Lincoln Highway, the first road across America (from New York City to San Francisco), became part of U.S. 30; it is still known by that name in many areas.
- US Route 40 - Wikipedia
U.S. Route 40 is an east-west United States highway. As with most routes whose numbers end in a zero, U.S. 40 once traversed the entire United States. It is one of the original 1920s U.S. Highways, and its first termini were San Francisco, California, and Atlantic City, New Jersey. The western end has been truncated several times, and the route now ends at Interstate 80 just outside of Park City, Utah, near Salt Lake City.
- US Route 50 - Wikipedia
U.S. Route 50 is a major east-west route of the U.S. Highway system, stretching just over 3,000 miles (4,800 km) from Ocean City, Maryland on the Atlantic Ocean to West Sacramento, California.
- US Route 80 - Wikipedia
U.S. Route 80 is an east-west United States highway. As the "0" in the route number indicates, it was originally a cross-country route, from the Atlantic to the Pacific. However, the entire segment west of Dallas, Texas, has been decommissioned in favor of various Interstate highways and state highways. Currently, the highway's eastern terminus is in Tybee Island, Georgia, at the Atlantic Ocean. Its western terminus is at the border of Dallas and Mesquite, Texas, at an intersection with Interstate 30.

VIRTUAL TRAVEL FOR THE HIKER, TRAVELER, AND OUTDOORSMAN
( from listing's site ) - The emergence of digital photography, along with the growth of the internet, gave life to a project which had been tossed about for some time. In casting about for a domain name at the peak of the dot-com boom, Robert Frost's poem The Road Less Traveled suggested the image quiet roads in the forest and having a choice of direction. In 1999 the hometown of Paris, Idaho became the first virtual tour to be photographed and within a couple months the tour extended by highway into Utah on the south and several miles to the north, and up some of the canyons of the Bear Lake Valley.
