Freeway network nears completion More than half of the 41,000-mile National system of interstate and defense highways will be open to traffic by the end of 1965. A recent report issued by the . Bureau of Public roads indicated that As of sept. 30, 19,986 Miles of the vast network were completed and work was in Progress on an additional 17,700 Miles. In the past three years an average of six Miles of interstate routes have been completed and opened to traffic each Day according to an estimate made by the automobile manufacturers association. The system scheduled to be entirely open by 1972, is being built under an act passed by Congress in 1956 which authorized a Long term expansion of the Federal Aid Highway program. Originally the 1956 act required that interstate projects be designed to serve the traffic needs of 1975. Recent congressional action however amended this provision and interstate projects must now be designed to accommodate traffic anticipated 20 years in the future. Financed entirely by taxes on motorists the Mammoth project will Cost an estimated $46.8 billion. While representing Only one per cent of All . Road mileage the system when completed will carry 20 per cent of All Highway traffic. It will link virtually All . Cities of 50,000 or More in population with about 6,700 Miles of the system located within Urban areas. Because the interstate network is designed to freeway standards the system when completed is expected to save As Many As 8,000 lives yearly through reduced traffic accidents. These same design features will result in savings of $5 billion yearly in motor vehicle operating costs.
