Men of vision have planned the National System of Interstate and Defense Highways as a legacy to future generations for the unlimited progress and full mobility of an America on wheels. Concrete roads of modern design will save lives and dollars far into the future-- long after inferior road surfaces crumble and collapse. No other paving material can approach the durability, safety and economy of concrete. It's the one pavement that meets all the needs of today's and tomorrow's traffic . . . when driving will again be a pleasure on long-lasting, safe, smooth-riding modern concrete highways. PORTLAND CEMENT ASSOCIATION Thrifty lowans who demand permanency with low overall cost know that concrete is their first desire for this state's portion of the Interstate network. Concret roads built in Iowa 20 to 30 years ago have proven themselves to Hawkeye state folks. While those roads are still serving today's modern traffic Interstate network. Concrete roads built in built today for Interstate traffic of tomorrow, will economically and safely serve generations to come. » Mtari 408 HUBBELL BLDG., DES MOINES 8, IOWA ft. «« rf *** ( . t . |hrfi|| t
