Although federal legislation to construct the Interstate Highway System had been passed under Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1956, this map of the area around Miami only labels numbered highways and state route numbers. U.S. Highway 1, seen here connecting Ft. Lauderdale to Miami, would eventually become part of the nation’s longest interstate – I-95.
In addition to showing road information, the map also lists locations of interest and summarizes the high points of various towns and cities. Insets of Key West, the Overseas Highway, Palm Beach and Florida’s East Coast complete the view. A small scale map of Miami and Miami Beach is available on the verso.
